  • Open Pit Mining Pros Cons Sciencing

    Open-pit mining is much safer than shaft mining. In underground mining the threat of a cave-in or release of toxic gas is a constant concern. When shaft mining was the most common method of ore extraction thousands died in cave-ins gas events and accidents involving equipment. In 1907 alone more than 3 200 deaths related to mining occurred.

  • What Is Open-Pit Mining (with picture)

    Jul 01 2020 · Just like the name suggests open-pit mining is a type of mining operation that involves the digging of an open pit as a means of gaining access to a desired material. This is a type of surface mining that involves the extraction of minerals and other materials that are conveniently located in close proximity to the surface of the mining site.
