    Abstract. in some mining operations, one of the most important roles played by the geologist is the supervision of grade control. in an openpit operation, this involves the sampling of blasthole cuttings produced by downthehole hammer drills and the classification of bench reserves into ore, low grade or waste material, or into various metallurgical types.

    What Is Grade Control And How Can It Save You Time

    At one point in an operation, mining becomes unprofitable because the grade of the metal is too low – the value of the metal in the ore is less than what it costs to mine it. grade control stops businesses from running at a loss. milling. the milling process is designed to be as efficient as possible by being performed at a specific grade.
