First, the exposed rock is fractured by drilling and blasting. The fractured rock is then loaded into trucks and transported to a processing plant.
At the processing plant, the large pieces of ore are reduced in size by passing it through a large crusher. Crushing the ore generates a mixture of smaller rocks that can be cleaned and sorted by size.
Sorting is accomplished by passing the rock through a series of vibrating screens. Sorted rock is then loaded for distribution to be further processed by the end user.
