Even though a pit is typically open on top and over 4 feet deep, it can still be a confined space or permit-required confined space. Additionally, pits can be completely underground or below grade, such as a utility vault within a sewer system or a pit within a pit in a wastewater treatment plant. Pits are found in many environments. Examples ...

Open pit mines are used to exploit low grade, shallow ore bodies. However, some pits are quite deep – about 1 km. The mining rate is greater than 20,000 tonnes per day (tpd) but is usually much greater. Some pits operate at a rate of more than 100,000 tpd Open pit mining results in two waste streams: waste rock which contains no economic

Coal mining is the process of extracting coal from the ground. Coal is valued for its energy content, and, since the 1880s, has been widely used to generate electricity. Steel and cement industries use coal as a fuel for extraction of iron from iron ore and for cement production. In the United Kingdom and South Africa, a coal mine and its structures are a colliery, a coal mine a pit, and the ...
