DESIGN OF OPTIMUM SLOPES FOR SAFETY AND CONSERVATION IN OPENCAST MINES – AN APPRAISAL (2011)
Presently, due to ever-increasing demand of minerals for the country, it is very much required to have the opencast mines at a greater depth. Increasing depth also increased the severity of slope stability problems of the opencast mines. Unlike the previous quarrying practices at shallow depths, now-a-days, study the stability of slopes of working benches and waste-dumps of opencast mines and analyzing their stability has become a challenge for the mining community. For the purpose, besides design of slopes by modeling or analytical methods, it is pertinent to utilize various techniques for monitoring the slopes to understand the status of its stability and early detection of instability of slopes for opencast mines.
