mining policies for low grade ore in honduras

  • Open Pit Mining an overview ScienceDirect Topics

    Large, low-grade ore deposits are usually economically attractive because it permits high recovery of the resource and allows sufficient space for large and efficient mining equipment. An open pit mine could recover almost 90% of the oil shale in a very thick deposit [17] .

  • Gold grade What is gold grade? BullionByPost

    The term gold grade is commonly confused with gold purity, with the two meaning something quite different. Gold grade is a term used in gold mining, and should be used as a measure of the quality of gold ore that is the raw material obtained from mining. Gold purity measures the amount of yellow gold mixed with other metals in finished gold products or, more strictly, gold alloy products.
