Sommaire: This paper describes the open-pit studies relating to slope stability and design of the argillitic waste rocks which form the upper 700 feet of the 1000- to 1100-ft high hanging-wall slope at the Cassiar Mine. Analyses indicated that the likelihood of deep-seated failure in terms of slope angles which are geometrically possible was low. However, wedge failures on benches, which involve either whole or parts of the benches, were found to be of principal importance with respect to stability.

Sommaire: Load-haul-dump machines equipped with a torque converter and hydraulic pumps have been field tested by means of an engine monitoring instrumentation package. It was found that owing to parasitic losses in the ancillaries and drivetrain, maximum available useable power may peak at less than full engine speed. Simple reduction of engine speed may save 15 to 25 per cent on fuel consumption, with no significant loss of available power. On some machines, speed reduction will require modification...

Sommaire: In order to raise the enormous amounts of capital which will be essential for the development of Canada's mineral and petroleum resources, this country's resource industry 'must be permitted to earn an acceptable rate of return. The existing tax regime, with its high rates, complexities and misdirected incentives, presents a serious obstacle to our resource industries in their development of Canada's immense, but increasingly lean, resources. Government tax and other policies are not the only...

Sommaire: Les mineralisations d'or des gites de la SOQUEM - Silver Stack dans le canton Bousquet se situent dans une bande de roches pyroclastiques acides du groupe de Blake River, d'dge archeen, dans le meme horizon geologique que les gites auriferes de Thompson Bousquet et Duma-gami situes plus a Vest. La propriete a ete exploree ante-rieurement a maintes reprises depuis les annees 1930, parfois jusqu'aux travaux souterrains, notamment par les groupes Mooshla, Warrenmac et Westwood Cadillac ainsi que...

Sommaire: Pyroclastic rocks are useful guides to volcanic centers due to the tendency of their fragments to increase in size and volume toward the source vent. The felsic rocks of these centers can be the prime hosts of base metal deposits in the Precambrian Shield; their sub-volcanic equivalents are often the focus of porphyry copper mineralization in the Cordillera. Quantitative mapping of pyroclastic rocks has not yet developed into a routine prospecting tool in Canada, however, possibly due to the...
