underground mining drift

Access drifts - QueensMineDesignWiki

Sill drifts (known as ore access drifts) act as the egress to the orebody in an underground mining operation and typically have the smallest cross-sections. They are usually secondary developments and act as temporary access points to an active area in the orebody that is being mined.

Mining - Horizontal openings: drifts Britannica

A drift running parallel to the ore body and lying in the footwall is called a footwall drift, and drifts driven from the footwall across the ore body are called crosscuts. A ramp is also a type of drift. Because the drift is such a fundamental construction unit in underground mining, the process by which it is made should be described.

Underground Ramp Design Parameters - QueensMineDesignWiki

The typical gradient range for underground ramp systems is between 10% and 15.5% (1), although in some high volume mines with larger trucks (such as is often the case in Australia) (1), they can be in a range more similar to that of open pit haul roads, 6% to 10% (3).

Drift Mining Dangerous Gold Mining Technique

Drift mining is done for a variety of minerals that form in seams. Both coal and gold provide challenges when using this extraction method. Miners would establish a drift mine at a location where exposed gravel benches were present on the side of a mountain or hill.

2013-04-10  Drift MiningThis kind of mining is done when the rock or mineral is on the side of a mountain.This makes it an easy, cheaper way to mine.Whenever possible, the opening to the mine will be dug a little lower than the rockor mineral vein. This makes it easier to get the materials out because gravity helpsmove them downhill.
