Sommaire: Till geochemistry was the principal exploration tool employed by Selco in the investigation of a zinc prospect in Lanark Township, Ontario. The geochemical studies were undertaken after the discovery at surface of marble boulders containing bands of sphalerite and lesser amounts of galena.
The source of these mineralized boulders was sought by means of B-horizon soil geochemistry, followed, where appropriate, by back-hoe trenching and till sampling. The thickness of the till in this part of...

Sommaire: In bedded deposits such as coal or sedimentary iron, economic limits of mineable reserves are clearly defined by the f ootwall of the seams or ore-bearing units. Where open pits are developed in dipping strata, a long, high f ootwall slope may result. In many cases, unbenched slopes excavated along the base of the lowest mineable seam are operationally simple, economically desirable and geotechnically practical, although a variety of failure mechanisms may develop. This paper examines the...

Sommaire: One approach to stabilization of rock slopes is to place a buttress at the toe of the slope to provide addtional resisting forces and increase the length and strength properties along the failure surface. This paper describes the rock mechanics and mine planning aspects of incorporating a buttress of intact rock in the lower part of the slope as part of the slope design for the south wall of the final pit at Cassiar Mine. "Stability analysis techniques and results are described. Analyses...
