Africa: Sega Project open pit slope design, Amara Mining

This gold project in Burkina Faso  involved the acquisition, analysis and interpretation of existing data to generate geotechnical drilling locations for rock mass characterisation studies. A detailed geotechnical and structural logging exercise was carried out and samples selected for analysis. A structural, kinematic and limit equilibrium analysis of data resulted in the completion of a detailed technical report outlining the open-pit slope parameters to be adhered to. This work was performed during 2012.
