  • In open pit mining operations, the diesel consumption of haul trucksrepresents roughly 50% of the total operating costs. To reduce operating costs, the trucks must be allocated and dispatched efficiently. In this study, a simulation model of open pit copper mining has been enhanced using Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) programming, which can be used to test and create a truck dispatching control table to satisfy a mining plan. By combining the simulation technique with the utilization of Excel and VBA programming, the enhanced simulation model could aid managers in mining operations decisions.
