General 2015-05-10Banduhurang Mine is the first opencast uranium mine of the country commissioned in June 2007. Situated adjacent to Turamdih underground mine, the deposit contains a moderately large reserve with very low grade. It is now a conventional opencast mine using excavator-dumper combination maintaining ore benches of 6m height, OB/waste benches of 6m/12m height while sustaining ROM grade and stripping parameters. Considering the strategic nature of mineral and low content of uranium, computerised ore body modelling and mine planning was carried out using SURPAC software. Open-pit mining method was chosen as the most favourable option and the pit limits were optimised using WHITTLE software. Layout of the mine was finalized with all finer details.
