Long-hole open stoping (mining method)

This link:

does not provide info about the method of:

Long-hole open stope mining (LHOS) – general diagram

No diagram and no explanation.

And the link in the discussion:

Does not give the diagram either as stated here:

The following two links give five methods  but no Long-hole open stope mining

•    Stope and fill
•    Stope and retreat
3 Types of stoping
•    Stull stoping
•    Shrinkage stoping
•    Long hole stoping
