The ongoing operations are managed by Omani management, supplemented by expatriate specialist and specialist contracting company. Gulf Triangle Mining LLC employs the open pit method in all mechanized mining operations. Benches are designed across and along the strike of the ore body for better quality control.
Eco-Friendly tippers, dozers, conventional drilling and blasting are preferred for the removal of over burden/waste rock. The ore is exposed after removing the waste capping. The run of the mine ore is loaded into fleet of trucks by excavators and then transported to stock yard for sizing, cleaning and quality upgrading.
All mining pits are designed considering factors that influence pit stability and feasibility. It includes an assessment of the rock mass, weathering and strength of the various lithologies at the mine site as well as the structural characteristics of discontinuities. The design of the ultimate slope angle, dimensions of benches is influenced by the combination of the rock mass strength, weathering influence of discountinutuies and presence and volume of water.
