Guidelines for Open Pit Slope Design in Weak Rocks

Derek Martin, Peter Stacey
December 08, 2017

Weak rocks encountered in open pit mines cover a wide variety of materials, with properties ranging between soil and rock. As such, they can provide a significant challenge for the slope designer. For these materials, the mass strength can be the primary control in the design of the pit slopes,...
