Abstract

This paper deals with the stability analysis of Sarcheshmeh mine west wall large slope. The current height of Sarcheshmeh west wall is 450m and in the future planning pit depth exceeds over 800 m. With regard to the high future west wall (840 m), a comprehensive stability analysis was conducted. A sophisticated 3D model of the west wall was constructed and a comprehensive numerical analysis was conducted. Both current and future west wall geometries were analyzed and compared. Modeling results are in agreement with field observations and predict instabilities for the mid-section of Sarcheshmeh west wall.
