Drawpoint - An underground opening at the bottom of a stope through which broken ore from the stope is extracted. Drift - A horizontal underground opening that follows along the length of a vein or rock formation as opposed to a crosscut which crosses the rock formation.
The essence of ore grade reconciliation is to identify, analyse and manage variance between planned and actual results in a way that highlights opportunities. A consistent record of poor reconciliation is an indication that this variance has not been adequately managed. This would inevitably result in significant economic impact on mining companies.

Opening a mine and separation plant can cost from $500 million to $1 billion, depending on the location, element, ore grade, and a variety of other factors (Schuler, 2011). Below is an economic feasibility analysis for opening new mines and refineries based on the price of the element (which is driven by demand for that element).
Escondida geology and ore reserves. ... The project partners invested $400m in opening the Escondida Norte pit, 5km north of the existing mine. By the end of 2004, 126Mt of material had been moved during pre-stripping operations, and the first production started in 2005. Ore is moved by conveyor to the existing treatment facilities.

In phase one, the project is expected to produce 60Mtpa of iron ore in 2026. Phase two development is expected to involve another 3.8bn ($5bn) investment to double the capacity of the railway, and 1.5bn ($2bn) for opening new ore bodies and expanding the deep-water port facility for supporting 110Mtpa iron ore operation.
I do not understand your factor comment. Are these ore losses to be applied to a resource? A reserve would have a pit design that includes both ore loss and waste rock dilution. For example, an iron ore open pit might have 6% dilution and 5% ore loss. The more complex the deposit, the larger the factors.
Nov 19, 2021 Stillwater and East Boulder are shallow to intermediate level underground PGM mines situated 85 miles southwest of Billings in Sweet Grass County approximately 32 miles south of the town of Big Timber, in the state of Montana, in the US.

Global finished steel consumption was forecast by the World Steel Association. 5. to decrease by 2.4% in 2020 and increase by 4.1% in 2021. World Mine Production and Reserves Reserves for Australia, Brazil, and South Africa were revised based on
The open pit will be mined by truck and shovel methods. The crushed ore will be transported by conveyor to the plant site. Mining at Oulba and Pic de Fon is planned to start from 2014. Approximately 30 million tonnes of iron ore will be pre-stripped before extracting at the mine, which will produce a single dry crushed and screened fine sinter.

An ore deposit is a mineral deposit that can be produced to make a profit. Thus, all ore deposits are mineral deposits, but the reverse is not true. Many factors control the profitability of an ore deposit. We call the amount of known ore in a deposit the reserves.
22.214.171.124 Open-pit mining Open-pit mining is a type of strip mining in which the ore deposit extends very deep in the ground, necessitating the removal of layer upon layer of overburden and ore. In many cases, logging of trees and clear-cutting or burning of vegetation above the ore deposit may precede removal of the overburden. The
