treatment of mine dumps

Mine waste dump stability analysis

As a quick example, knowing that the foundation materials at the mine site have an internal angle of friction of between 20 and 40 will lead to a very vague and likely over-conservative design, whereas knowing that in the areas of the dumps, the values are between 25 and 30 confines the problem far better, and saves several steps in a
