When designing with rock masses of relatively high intact strength, characterization of the geologic structure properties is a critical component to proper analysis. Data describing distributions of discontinuity orientation, length, spacing and strength for pertinent sets

The inclination of any pit wall composed of stacks of benches is limited by the overall quality and structural complexity of the rock mass in which the slope is situated. For a bench stack angle that satisfies the stability criteria, various combinations of bench height, bench face angle and

In underground mining, there are a number of uncertainties in the ground support design process and during implementation of ground support designs. The minimisation of geological uncertainty is one of the rock engineering principles outlined by Bieniawski (1992) and by Stacey
