Abstract/Summary Efficient methods to model and optimise the design of open pit mines have been known for many years. Although the underground mine design problem is conceptually more difficult it has a similar potential for optimisation. Recent research demonstrates some useful progress in this topic. Here we provide an overview of some of this research.
