As part of the deepening of the pit at Jwaneng diamond mine in Botswana, SRK was required to provide a detailed probabilistic stability analysis of the east slope to optimise the design of Cut 8, to ensure the integrity of the plant installations in its vicinity. The analysis was one aspect of a larger comprehensive design philosophy applied by Debswana and described in the paper by Tunono et al (2011) titled, "Geotechnical Design of Jwaneng Mine Cut 8".
