Mine Planning Challenges at Lepanto's Cut-and-Fill Mine
by Rey A. Taylan & Edison D. Mating, Lepanto Consolidated Mining Company
Monday, 6 September 2021 // 7.00pm to 8.30pm
Lepanto Consolidated Mining Company has been a proud corporate resident of Mankayan, Benguet in Northern Philippines for over 85 years since 1936 mining gold and copper. The primary mining method at Lepanto is semi-mechanized overhand cut & fill stoping utilizing un-cemented mine tailings for backfill.
The lecture will discuss the current challenges in mine planning with Lepanto’s old mining areas. It will revolve on the issues and solutions with un-documented old stopes, pillar mining, hydraulic backfilling, underground infrastructures, ventilation planning and local variations of cut-and-and fill mining.
