open cut (or open pit) mining involves digging and/or drilling and blasting to remove the resource or ore for processing. often there is 'overburden' or waste rock material, which must be removed before the actual resource can be mined. open cut is sometimes referred to as 'strip mining'.

open-pit mining often (but not always) results in a large hole, or pit, being formed in the process of extracting a mineral. it can also since strip mining is primarily applied to thin, flat deposits of coal, it is not discussed here (see coal mining).
the opencast, also referred to as the open-pit method, is the ideal technique when the coal seam is close to the surface. extremely efficient, opencast mining can
