The bench slope performance of transition zone materials in deeply weathered deposits are highly variable due to the inherent soil and rock masses complexity, and the excavation practices that are utilized to form these slopes. For the most part, the transition materials are difficult to Read more... about Key Geotechnical Characterisation Parameters for Transition Materials in Deep Weathered Deposits and their Influence on Bench Slope Stability

This paper will address critical aspects for consideration when characterizing parameters related to geology, structural geology, hydrogeology and rock mass for definition of geotechnical domains for slope design. The types of deposits that will be presented: general porphyry rock masses (i.e. Read more... about Approach to Geotechnical Characterization and Slope Design Data Acquisition Programs in Different Deposit Types

Kinross Gold Corporation has several porphyry/epithermal gold properties in Maricunga gold belt in northern Chile. The Maricunga site comprises the operating Verde pit and the Pancho deposit, currently under development. Currently active operations are all open pits mines of a medium scale, and Read more... about Slope Design for Maricunga Mine in Chile
