Abstract [en]

Optimization of the mining process can have a significant impact on the production of the mine. Monitoring systems are important tools to generate information for different decision makers in the mine. In opencast mining, blasting plays the main role in rock fragmentation and the productivity of the mine. Therefore, data and information for optimizing blasting and fragmentation are essential. Drill monitoring and image analysis are two systems that are available today for the mining industry. This case study demonstrates the power of integration of these two systems for production control, providing information required for the optimization of blasting. The data in this study is extracted from the Aquila drill management system and the Split-online image analysis system, which are installed in Aitik mine, the largest open pit copper mine of Europe, located in the north of Sweden
