This study summarizes the state-of-the-art in rock mechanics, open pit and underground mining, leaching, geology, metallurgy, and financial analysis. Conceptual design of pit slope caving technique and analyses explore concepts for the exploitation of ore-grade remnants in the walls and bottoms of open pit mines and the potential economics of the adaptations. Several coded sites were examined for future studies where the feasibility of the method may be demonstrated. An extensive bibliography was developed.
