Mining Sites: The Transition from Open-Pit to Underground Mining

Open-pit mining can also be identified as open-cast or open cut mining. The practice operates above ground, always at the surface, extracting minerals and rocks from the surface. Open-pit mining presents less dangers in comparison to underground mining - these surface mines do not need to tackle issues such as air loss and cave-ins, nor do workers have to worry about regulating heavy machinery. As this method of mining is less intrusive and does not require tunneling into the ground, it is most
