Abstract

The future of Kosovo’s economic development relies on the exploration of natural resources, particularly, mining. Great importance has been placed on the exploitation of these resources via the surface utilization of marls. Marls being the prevalent raw material for cement production. Since the beginning of 20thcentury, great achievements have been made in the geo-techniques field, leading to the remarkable progress in the art of mining.This paper through the limit equilibrium solution examines the optimization of parameters for slope stability and presents the findings of the on-site research and lab workings conducted on the open-pit mines of marls near the cement plant “SHARR CEM” Hani i Elezit. Expansion of the mine to the south-eastern boundary will require significant stability analysis.Therefore in order to determine represented parameters as realistically as possible, physic-mechanical parameters were drawn from the material on the slope. The lab results were processed from astatistical perspective their reduction were conducted under geotechnical conditions for safety. This parameters where adopted so that slope stability calculations could take place. Two analytic methods were used for geostatic analyses,The Bishop’smethod and Janbu’s method.

Slope Stability Analysis of the Working Level and Final Slope in the Surface Mine of Marls Near 'Hani I Elezit'

Chicago, Illinois

The future of Kosovo’s economic development relies on the exploration of natural resources, particularly, mining. Great importance has been placed on the exploitation of these resources via the surface utilization of marls. Marls being the prevalent raw material for cement production.
