What Is Grade Control Digging?

Grade control digging refers to the process of drilling a series of holes, normally in close proximity to each other, the material from which is then tested to determine its composition. The material that is returned from each hole is analyzed to determine the quality & amount (or grade) of the desired ore as a percentage of the amount of material extracted. This process is usually carried out after an ore body has been identified and helps to determine where mining should proceed. It provides a model of the mine area showing where the richest deposits of ore are located.
