My research area is open pit to underground transition in mining. Which involves optimal pit limit, mine planning, scheduling, Software’s and equipment selection during transitional phase. Worldwide trend of transition from open pit to underground has been increased tremendously in metal mining. To remain at economically safe side it’s vital to predetermine optimal pit limit of an open pit mine before starting an underground mining operation. So it’s vital to evaluate important factors during transitional phase of any metal mining starting with an open pit mining method.
I did Master of Science in Mining Engineering from University of Engineering and Technology Lahore,Pakistan. Now I am doing my PhD under faculty development program funded by UET, Lahore in Mining and Geotechnology Division of Luleå University of Technology,Sweden.
