Production capacity

Based on the times for technological phases and initial plan to achieve ~8500t of ore per month, following plan is created.

In each Sector two stopes are blasted and loaded per each shift, 4 stopes are operational at once for the whole mine. One blasting produces around 36t of the ore, therefore shift capacity is:

4 x 36t per stope = 144t per shift


With 2 production shifts per one day, and 22 working days per month, monthly production is:

2 shifts x 144t x 22 days = 6 336t per month
