The Design of Quarry Faces and Slopes - Agg-Net

2020-2-28  It is estimated that a minimum bench width of 15m would be required for a long-reach excavator to operate safely. On a quarry slope formed by three 15m faces at 70° with a minimum bench width of 15m, the reserves lost would amount to approximately 10,000 tonnes per 10m of face when compared with a 7m bench width (fig. 4). When this loss

Surface mining planning and design of open pit mining

So the overall pit slope is lesser the inter-ramp slope. In the example, almost 50% more tonnage must be moved to mine the same pit bottom. In the early design of a pit a lesser pit slope can be used to allow for the road system. The pit in Fig. 5 was designed with an overall slope of 380. The overall slope to use will depend on the width ...
