Abstract : Most manufacturing products are composed of metals, themselves produced from mining or recycling of metal alloys.Our study is part of the context of mining. This activity generates huge profits through two processes: the upstream process and the downstream process. The upstream process is the headquarters of the extraction activities while the downstream process is the seat of the transformation activities. Because of the huge profits generated by the mining activity, one of the primary concerns of the decision-makers is to ensure a stable income for the activity. Therefore, we must ensure the robustness of the mining production chain. The robustness of the mining production chain means a stability of the chain in the face of hazards outside from the mining system.It should be noted that the processes of the mining chain are realized in an unique reality. Hence, we are interested in the New Caledonian mining process (French archipelago of the South Pacific) in which maritime transport is essential. This specificity places the mining system in an environment subject to climatic hazards. In this context, we are interested in the hazards caused by the hurricane event; a frequent phenomenon in this part of the globe.In order to ensure the robustness of the mining production chain, we propose to coordinate upstream and downstream processes via the exchange of key information between upstream and downstream processes and also at the very heart of the upstream process ie between mines. Moreover, the consideration of cyclonic hazards is done by a scenario approach.In order to solve the question of mining planning under uncertainty in order to ensure the robustness of the entire mining system: a bibliographic study has made it possible to highlight the component processes of the global chain. This study also identified two types of uncertainty: ore supply uncertainty and uncertainty in the distribution of the mineral product. Climate hazards are poorly studied, as is the exchange of key information between upstream and downstream processes.As a perspective, we propose: knowledge propagation in the mining context then we propose the consideration of other sources of ore likely to modify the current definition of the mining chain and finally the taking into account of the appropriate weightings between the scenarios describing expert knowledge of a hazard affecting the mining chain.
