Geology
English term or phrase: step-out
SLIDE MANAGEMENT
When mine slope instability occurs several responses are possible.

1. Leave the unstable area alone
2. Continue mining without changing the mine plan
3. Unload the displaced area through additional stripping
4. Leave a step-out
5. Do a partial cleanup
6. Mine out the instability
7. Support the unstable ground with cable bolts
8. Dewater the unstable area

The choice of option or combination of options depends on the nature of the instability and its operational impact. Each case should be evaluated individually, cost-benefit comparisons should be conducted, and the following guidelines should be observed.
