Optimum ramp design in open pit mines ScienceDirect

Because in-pit ramps require the removal of a considerable amount of non-valuable material (stripping), we discuss two different problems: high stripping (or in-pit) ramp design and low stripping (or ex-pit) road design. For the first situation, we present an integer programming model; in the second case, a shortest path approach is undertaken.
