New Mining Concept for Extracting Metals from Deep Ore Deposits using Biotechnology

Abstract:
The method is based on underground bioleaching of metal ores preceded by proper extension of deposits of such ores. Its potential use could enable to win metals from deep ore deposits since traditional mining methods make the exploitation impossible or unprofitable. Possible use of such method will be tested on the basis of bioleaching test of metals from a rock block located in one of copper mines of KGHM Polska Miedź S.A. – coordinator of the project. A model for such process will be developed and a microbiological consortium will be prepared, used for bioleaching. The test results will be interpreted in form of technological concept of underground bioleaching of metal ores in in situ conditions, with particular emphasis on environmental and social aspects.

Smart Hard Rock Mining System (RockVader)

 

Abstract:

For securing future raw materials supply, new solutions are required to enhance economically viable mining operations. Especially in the currently challenging economic environment there is a need to improve the Net Present Value (NPV) of ore deposits. Compared to the drill & blast technology, mechanical cutting provides numerous environmental, safety and economic benefits and the continuous process would allow faster advance rates. As the technology of mechanical rock cutting is a core competence of Sandvik Mining and Construction in Zeltweg/Austria, continuous development work was performed in this sector. Numerous research projects, also on a European level, have been realized to improve the capabilities of cutting systems to allow economic excavation also in hard rock conditions. The objective of the project is to prove and make ready for marketing this new mechanical cutting machine which will at least double the excavation speed of underground roadway developments, compared to the present state of the art technology of drilling & blasting. The fast and safe mechanical excavation of the new Rock Vader system will enhance economic and safe mining for the future by increasing the development rate and by providing an accurate and smooth tunnel profile.
