Block Caving Mining Magazine REDPATH MINING.BLOCK ANd pANeL CAVING Block caving is an underground mining method that uses gravity to exploit massive, steeply dipping orebodies located at depth, particularly those with disseminated mineralisation or that are low-grade in nature, but too deep to be extracted using open pit methods. Block caving also depends on insitu stresses and
Project Overview Resolution Copper.The most viable way to recover the ore body is by a well-established underground mining method called block caving. Block caving is safe, environmentally sound, and cost-effective for mining a large, deep orebody. In block caving, a large section of ore is initially undercut by drilling and blasting, causing it to collapse under its weight.
