Deligeorges & Associates is an independent geotechnical engineering consultancy, providing geotechnical services to the global mining industry.

 

An important aspect of mining is ground control management.

D&A has become an industry leader in creating and maintaining Ground Control Management Plans (GCMP) for surface mining operations.

GROUND CONTROL MANAGEMENT

The principal objective of ground control management is to maintain safe excavations in rock and soil.  This incorporates all the geotechnical efforts to minimise and manage uncontrolled ground movements during mining.

 

Ground Control Management Plans (GCMP) formalise and consolidate all the geotechnical aspects of open pit mining. The GCMP provides a framework that allows the Mine Managers to implement strategies and delegate tasks related to geotechnical work and hazards.

 

An effective GCMP is essential to ensure a safe and successful mining operation.

 

Deligeorges & Associates is an industry leader in creating, updating and auditing Ground Control Management Plans.  To implement or improve your site’s GCMP, please contact us.

GCMP Intent

  • Provide a safe mining environment (from a geotechnical perspective), that complies with all relevant legislative requirements.

  • Ensure that appropriate and applicable safety, planning, design, operating and documentation standards are applied to mining geotechnical activities.

  • Outline risk based systems (where possible) for design, planning and operational geotechnical activities.

  • Manage geotechnical aspects of mining to ensure safe mining procedures while optimising geotechnical designs from an economic viewpoint.

  • Identify potential slope instability that may develop during mining, and derive strategies for their management and control.

  • Maintain a level of understanding of ground conditions such that any initially unforeseen geological and/or hydrogeological conditions can be detected during mining, enabling necessary corrective measures to be implemented in a timely fashion.

GCMP Benefits

  • Improve flow of geotechnical information

  • Improve understanding of geotechnical issues

  • Improve condition of future pit walls and dumps

  • Increase and maintain geotechnical awareness on site

  • Ensure all geotechnical information is utilised

  • Simplify and improve existing procedures

  • Provide guidance for most geotechnical scenarios

  • Fulfil legislative requirements

  • Maintain knowledge base regardless of personnel turnover

  • Provide all personnel with confidence when working in pits or on dumps by demonstrating that geotechnical issues are being considered.
