  • Kobusingye, Debrah (Busitema University, 2018-05)
    Mineral processing involves the-separation of valuable minerals from gangue minerals through crushing, grinding and concentration. During gravity concentration huge amounts of tailings are discharged to the environment ...
  • Ologe, Hector Daniel (Busitema University., 2019-06)
    The provision of adequate and reliable water supply in developing countries is becoming a challenge for most water utilities especially national water and sewerage corporation. The existence of an information gap regarding ...
  • Olweny, Aldo (Busitema University., 2017-05)
    The main objective of the project was to optimize blasting to minimize the fine materials generated. The optimization of the blast an effort to eliminate excessively fine materials or to minimize the amount of big fragments ...
  • Kaijuka, Brian (Busitema University., 2016-05)
    Dilution, which is difficult to quantify accurately, is a major concern in underground mining. The level of dilution at Kilembe mines is currently difficult to assess owing to the complexity of the ore body The acceptable ...
  • Kakuru, Grace (Busitema University., 2016-05)
    The atmosphere underground is limited and confined, and is thus readily reduced to a substandard or even dangerous condition if contaminants produced in the course of operations like drilling, blasting, welding and hauling ...
  • Kiiza, Amina Rakulimya (Busitema University., 2016-05)
    This report is mainly showing the details of how a suitable backfill type and the volumes needed were got considering geotechnical and economic factors. It mainly talks about background of the study the problem statement, ...
  • Kisaakye, Emily Luyiga (Busitema University., 2016-05)
    A lot of dust is generated during the course of various mine operation and also other economic activities most especially due to rock fragmentation. The dust is usually beyond allowable concentrations hence causing negative ...
  • Kyozira, Phiona (Busitema University., 2016-05)
    Lime stone extraction has been practiced in the Eastern region of Uganda especially Tororo district. The method of mining used is quarrying. however, this forms a hanging wall of about 91m high. which may become unstable ...
  • Lokwe, Emmanuel (Busitema University., 2016-05)
    This project report entails the analysis of shovel-truck system for optimal selection at Tororo Cement Limited Quarry, in Tororo-Uganda, with the basic aim of optimizing cycle time, material size, loading distance through ...
  • Nuwareeba, Edson (Busitema University., 2016-05)
    This was conducted in order to establish the factors that lower production evaluate the identified factors and provide. suggestions so as to increase, production of the mine it includes overcoming the excessive oversize ...
  • Ocare, Joseph (Busitema University., 2016-05)
    In order to extract minerals or metals from the earth in an economical way, it is necessary to crush large quantities of earth material into a range of fine to micro size particles and add additives to obtain them. However, ...
  • Ogala, Oscar (Busitema University., 2016-05)
    This final year research project aimed at investigating and establishing bench parameters for re-design of Tororo limestone quarry. Design of open pit slope angles is more important as the depths of open pits continuously ...
  • Opiyo, Kenedy (Busitema University., 2016-05)
    Geotechnical properties play an important role in the stability of any excavation in mines. This makes it an important factor of considering in order for safety to be realized to enhance operation in mines. Tiira Gold ...
  • Owor, Laban (Busitema University., 2016-05)
    Fly rock are mainly rocks that are propelled beyond the blast area by the force of an explosion. Comprising of hard soil or stones from the exploding blast holes. When the uncontrolled material fragments are thrown beyond ...
  • Sekatawa, Peter (Busitema University., 2016-05)
    Tororo cement limestone quarry is experiencing some sub-standard blast results blast results are considered poor when the fragmentation is too big, back break into the new high wall capping is experienced and/or excess ...
  • Asiimwe, Jonard (Busitema University., 2016-06)
