Mongolia - Complex Research for Geotechnical Condition of Open Pit Mine

Project overview

Country Mongolia
Overall project value in € 283,942
Name of client Erdenet Mining Corporation
Dates start/end 10/2017 - 10/2018


Detailed description of project

The aim of the project is geotechnical complex research in connection with increasing the ore reserve, open pit mine extension and safety requirement of equipment for implementation of IPCC system in 2020.

The results are graphically processed in RockScience, RockData and Slides software. Geotechnical evaluation is developed for selected sections with further recommendations and the required degree of slope for the extensions of the open pit mine is determined on selected sections.
