Erosion resistant landform design for steep slopes in rehabilitated bauxite mines
Total Grant Value
The study was planned to answer questions including:
- What is the maximum slope angle that can be safely mined and rehabilitated using standard practice?
- And which of many erosion simulation models can be used as a tool to predict erosion risk?
These and other slope rehabilitation issues were addressed to inform decisions on criteria governing the regulation of such practices as well as achieve the needed outcomes. All the objectives were met, assisting both companies and regulators, and are thoroughly documented in the report.
