|Abstract:||During this paper, in order to identify the priority of consideration between the problems of “mining method selection” and “determining transition depth from open-pit to underground mining” an accurate procedure is introduced step by step. First, it is essential to specify if an ore deposit that potentially will have mined by a combined method of open-pit and underground mining. In this case, optimal final open-pit limit and depth must be initially determined. After that, if the rest of deposit below open-pit limit is economically considerable, it is necessary to select the most adequate underground method with emphasis on the high production rate and low cost methods. Then, it is necessary to determine optimal transition depth from open-pit to underground mining considering a crown pillar immediately below open-pit mining. Finally, the procedure with its algorithm was used for an iron ore deposit with the combined mining potential.|
