In opencast mining process, the hard overburden is removed by drilling and blasting and the mineral, being soft, is mined with the help of crowbars and transported to the stacking places manually. In some opencast pits, mechanical excavators are in use. Benches are formed along the strike on the hanging wall and footwall sides to work the deposit at depth. Most soapstone mines are worked manually.

Some mines are semi-mechanized. In manually worked opencast mines, drilling is sometimes done by compressor hammer unit. In some larger mines, loading and transport are done by shovel and dumper combination. Mechanical haulage transports the material through the incline.
