Paper Title:
Simultaneous Optimization of Final Pit and Production Schedule in Open-Pit Coal Mines
  Abstract

A dynamic sequencing method has been developed that can simultaneously optimize the final pit and the production schedule of an open-pit coal mine. The method first establishes a geological seam model of a bedded coal deposit which estimates the relevant attributes of coal seams at the center of each block on the X-Y plane. Based on the seam model, a sequence of “geologically optimum final pits” is generated and, in each of these pits, a sequence of “geologically optimum push-backs” is generated. The geologically optimum push-backs are then put into a dynamic programming scheme and the best production schedule which has the highest NPV is obtained for each final pit. After the best production schedules for all the final pits are obtained, the one with the highest overall NPV is the optimum final pit and its associated best schedule is the overall best production schedule.
