Stripping ratio

OverviewSee also

In mining, stripping ratio or strip ratio refers to the ratio of the volume of overburden or waste material required to be handled in order to extract some tonnage of ore. For example, a 3:1 stripping ratio means that mining one tonne of ore will require mining three tonnes of waste rock. Stripping ratios are typically reduced to show the volume of waste removal required to extract one unit ton of ore, for example, 1.5:1 as opposed to 3:2.

Stripping Ratio  Mineral Production Activities

6. Stripping ratio . The main factor in designing a n open pit mine, which largely determines the cost of mining, is the stripping ratio.. Stripping is the removal of waste rock from above and around the orebody. Stripping ratio is defined as the tonnage of waste rock to be mined, divided by the tonnage of ore to be mined from the pit.

In general, mining costs are allocated to production costs, inventories and ore stockpiles, and are charged to mine production costs when gold is sold. However, at our open pit mines, which have diverse grades and waste to ore ratios over the mine, we defer the costs of waste stripping in excess of the expected pit life average stripping ratio.

applies to stripping costs that are incurred in open pit mining activity during the production phase of the mine. These costs are often significant for open pit mining operations where waste and ore are typically mined together. The DI would require management to make significant judgements and could result in a need for considerable changes to

Stripping is the removal of waste rock from above and around the orebody. Stripping ratio is defined as the tonnage of waste rock to be mined, divided by the tonnage of ore to be mined from the pit. Stripping ratio is influenced by the shape of the orebody and may vary considerably during the life of the mine.
