The footwall of the coal seam No. XII/XIV of the coal mine is dipping at 38° to 40°. A long-term stability of the mine and protection of the shaft structure was required. Geotechnical study was conducted for optimum slope design. The open pit was kept under geodetic surveying, by using electro-optical distance measurement and precision leveling. The survey readings do not show much movements but if water pressure develops in the footwall joints some failures are likely to take place. Controlled blasting is essential to prevent damage to installed facilities, like shaft, aerial ropeway structures and buildings.
