English term or phrase: backbreak
Backbreak Analysis Overview
To determine the achievable bench-face angles, CNI conducted a probabilistic analysis to calculate the amount of backbreak that can be expected for pit-wall orientations in the igneous rock sectors of the XXXX Final Pit. Backbreak is defined as: the distance behind the crest that a vertical bench sloughs into the pit along a daylighted geologic structure. This definition is illustrated on Figure 7-3.
