Geotechnical applications in open pit mining. the mine slope in relation to their conditions of stability. It was used geotechnical database proposed by Naghadehi et al. (), which features. SRK was involved with the Ok Tedi copper-gold mine from , completing studies in hydrogeology, structural geology, geotechnics and mining engineering. In the feasibility phases, SRK developed specialised numerical models to assess the stability of the open pit cutbacks and underground operations interacting with the open pit. Guidelines for Open Pit Slope Design is a comprehensive account of the open pit slope design process. Created as an outcome of the Large Open Pit (LOP) project, an international research and technology transfer project on the stability of rock slopes in open pit mines, this book provides an up-to-date compendium of knowledge of the slope design processes that should 5/5(6).   Detailed geotechnical data is often a major unknown factor in open pit design and mining, the lack of which constitutes a significant risk in any mining venture. As geotechnical data is accumulated so the risk of unforeseen conditions reduces, and so safety and productivity can be increased. Previously, most geotechnical work undertaken at open pit mines has focused Cited by: 5.

During his 29 years with Golder, Mr Stacey worked primarily in the areas of pit slope design and the application of geotechnical engineering to the operational aspects of open pit mines. In , he formed Stacey Mining Geotechnical Ltd to concentrate on independent review consulting related to the geotechnical aspects of open pit mining.5/5(3).
