As part of the methodological study concerning the block modelling techniques in mining applications, a study wa carried on, in an open pit uranium mine. A geological data collection of several benches shows the presence of a large sets of discontinuities corresponding to complex tectonic episods. Each set of discontinuities is characterized by statistical distribution of parameters. Those data have been introduced in a block generator software (RESOBLOK) was used as an input to the Block Stability Analysis (BSA) program.BSA uses advanced "sinle block stability" algorithms. This study allowe of classify the benches and qualify the instability risks. So that the miner got an idea of the action : monitoring and/or reinforcement. This methodology was found more interesting than the classical methods to study the benches stability in an open pit mine.
