REEF: Resolving Length Bias in Frequent Sequence Mining ...

bias in F requent sequence mining (REEF), this algorithm is expanded in the current paper. REEF is an algorithm for mining frequent sequences that normalizes the support of each candidate sequence with a length adjusted z-score. The use of the z-score in REEF eliminates statistical biases towards nding shorter patterns, and contributes to nding ...

Modern Mining Underground | Anglo American

2. MM 220 Reef Miners. Also in development with is another remotely operated rig, the MN 220 Reef Miner. This incorporates cutting and roof bolting and is designed for mining narrow mineral reefs in hard rock. It is up to three times faster than conventional drill & blast methods and, of course, also removes our people from harm''s way.

Underground hard-rock mining

The mining method selected is determined by the size, shape, orientation and type of orebody to be mined. The orebody can be narrow vein such as a gold mine in the Witwatersrand, the orebody can be massive similar to the Olympic Dam mine, South Australia, or Cadia-Ridgeway Mine, New South Wales.The width or size of the orebody is determined by the grade as well as the distribution of the ore.

Quartz reef mining

Quartz reef mining is a type of gold mining in "reefs" (veins) of quartz. Quartz is one of the most common minerals in the earth''s crust, and most quartz veins do not carry gold, but those that have gold are avidly hunted by prospectors. In the shallow, oxidized zones of quartz reef deposits, the gold occurs in its metallic state, and is easily ...

''Rock cutting'' – platinum mining of the future?

reef mining could be sustained in large parts of the Complex. However, areas with increased geological disturbance would require more detailed studies before any on-reef mining method could be introduced. In general, the BC orebodies do lend themselves to on-reef mining methods, which could include rock-cutting technologies.

What are the main methods of mining? | American ...

There are four main mining methods: underground, open surface (pit), placer, and in-situ mining. Underground mines are more expensive and are often used to reach deeper deposits. Surface mines are typically used for more shallow and less valuable deposits. Placer mining is used to sift out valuable metals from sediments in river channels, beach sands, or other environments.

Mining of Iron Ores – IspatGuru

 · Manual mining method is normally limited to float ores. Mining of reef ore is also being done manually on a small scale. The float ore area is dug up manually with picks, crow bars, and spades, and then the material is manually screened to separate + 10 mm float ore which is then stacked up. The waste is thrown back into the pits.
