Investigation of Bishop’s and Janbu’s Models Capabilities on Slope Stability Problems with Special Consideration to Open-Pit Mining Operations

A. Alikhani; M. Taheri Moghadder; H. Mohammadi

Volume 11, Issue 1 , January 2020, , Pages 161-170


  One of the most effective parameters in economics of open-pit mines is the pit slope angle, so that the slope angle more than the optimum value increases the probability of a large failure in the pit wall and the slope angle less than the optimum value leads to increasing stripping ratio and reducing ...  Read More

A practical approach to open-pit mine planning under price uncertainty using information gap decision theory

M. M. Tahernejad; M. Ataei; R. Khalokakaie

Volume 9, Issue 2 , April 2018, , Pages 527-537


  In the context of open-pit mine planning, uncertainties including commodity price would significantly affect the technical and financial aspects of mining projects. A mine planning that takes place regardless of the uncertainty in price just develops an optimized plan at the starting time of the mining ...  Read More
