Title
(EN) EXTRACTING MINED ORE, MINERALS OR OTHER MATERIALS USING SENSOR-BASED SORTING
(FR) EXTRACTION DE MINERAI EXPLOITÉ, DE MINÉRAUX OU AUTRES MATÉRIAUX PAR LE TRI EFFECTUÉ AU MOYEN DE CAPTEURS
Abstract
(EN)
A method of analyzing minerals received within a mining shovel bucket includes collecting data associated with ore received in the bucket, where the bucket includes at least one active sensor, where the ore includes one or more mineral, and where the ore is within a field of the active sensor. The method further includes determining a content of the minerals using the data, transmitting information relating to the content of the minerals to a decision support system, and sorting or processing the ore based on an output of the decision support system. Collecting data associated with the ores may include generating source signals, applying the source signals to the active sensor, collecting a response from the active sensor, and comparing the response with a reference or threshold. Other features are disclosed.

L'invention concerne un procédé d'analyse de minéraux recueillis dans un godet de pelle d'extraction minière et consistant à collecter des données associées au minerai recueilli dans le godet, ledit godet comprenant au moins un capteur actif, et le minerai se trouvant dans le champ du capteur actif. Le procédé consiste ensuite à déterminer une teneur en minéraux à l'aide des données, transmettre des informations relatives à la teneur en minéraux à un système de support de décision et trier ou traiter le minerai sur la base d'un résultat du système de support de décision. La collecte des données associée aux minerais peut consister à générer des signaux source, à envoyer les signaux source au capteur actif, à collecter une réponse en provenance du capteur actif et à la comparer à une référence ou à un seuil. L'invention concerne en outre d'autres caractéristiques.
