please describe to me about design dump in open pit mine
Thanks for your question.
Design for dump in open cast pit mine involves in the study of slope, flow direction of water and nature of subsurface formation study. The site selected should contain low permeable formation, low to moderate slope and the dump material should be prevented from contaminating the down flow directions. Normally test bores, infiltration studies and resistivity surveys are used for these purpose. The main objective should be that the dump material should not contaminate in any way the subsurface formation flow of fluids.
