The geotechnical study is part of the mining operation. Also, soil rocks have important implications for tracking mine design optimization and geotechnical risks.

Disruption of geotechnical conditions due to the development of mine designs, as well as inadequately assessed rocks during mining operations, may result in slippery collapse. Geotechnical breakdown can minimize the potential for mining to break down equipment, and long-term mines need to be re-established at higher costs. Massive geotechnical collapse that may cause public safety, infrastructure and the environment may result in the closure of the mine permanently.
