Abstract Miners harvest minerals from ore-bodies in the ground by a variety of specialised mining methods, with most falling into the categories of open-pit and underground. Some ore-bodies are harvested by a combination of open-pit and underground methods. In these cases there is often material that could be mined by either method, and an economic choice has to be made.
