Abstract

In order to extract mine from the ground in any area, the type of mining to be selected will able to be defined as the result of the pre-investigations and analysis in the intended area. At this stage, economic value of the ore, geologic and tectonic features of the mining field, topographic state of the field, the thickness of the ore and the earth layer that is covering the ore, the excavation ability of the earth, and climate conditions of the concerned area are the leading factors in defining the type of mining (underground mining or open pit mining). In the later stage, these criteria, will be affecting and differentiate the mine measuring activities to be applied on the field, depending on the type of mining that is decided for application on the field. In this study, it is attempted to define the possible field measurement studies that are in the scope of mine surveying and probable risks that might be encountered in case of lacking these activities, during the starting, implementing and finishing the mining activities that are defined in a selected open pit mining area.
