    Advantages and disadvantages of open pit mining – .

    What is open pit mining . Open pit mines are those mining operations that take place on the surface, unlike the underground mines. This is possible when the reservoir sprouts on the surface or at a very small depth. It began to be realized in the middle of the XVI century and it is used all over the world.

    South Africa's Largest OpenPit Mine

    Jul 29, 2019 · Copper mining began at Palabora in 1965, and by 1967 the openpit mine was fully operational. The hole reached 800 meters down into the Earth before the depletion of resources made it uneconomical to continue mining in the pit. Operations moved underground (below the pit) and mostly out of sight in the early 2000s.
