Open Pit Mining

The trend of open pit operations mining to deeper levels has seen an increased stress environment and a greater uncertainty about the mechanical behaviour of slopes, elevating mine worker safety and productivity risks. The ACG, through its open pit geomechanics research projects, events and training products, seeks to equip industry with advanced design and monitoring tools and state-of-the-art knowledge.
