Evaluation of Slope stability for Waste Rock Dumps in a Mine

Flora, Charanpreet Singh (2009) Evaluation of Slope stability for Waste Rock Dumps in a Mine. BTech thesis.



The growing needs have been pushing the limits, to which the mining industry has to reach to lift itself to fulfill the demand. The effect can be seen from the methods of mining that have evolved over the years. The heavy machinery adopted for the extraction has been producing wastes in the form of waste rocks whose management is again of prime importance. The issues relating to the stability of these overburden dumps is catching attention worldwide from quite some time, which is quite important for the safe working in and around these monstrous structures as well as restricted availability of land. This paper deals with the stability issues of dumped slopes for a local chromite mine. The analysis cover analysis of various sections of the waste dumps from the mine including material properties, strength values, bench height and angle.
