Endangering Residents in Shipitull Village by Landslide at the Surface Mining in South West Sibovc


Hysen Ahmeti and Vehbi Duraku

Facing the problem of the expropriation of the Shipitull village and the non-advancement of mining activity in the direction of the frontal work for the removal of the clay overburden for the use of coal, geo-mechanical drilling was performed to determine the most accurate physical-mechanical parameters to calculate the height of the partial and generals slopes with the safety factor Fs> 1.2, to create optimum conditions for the use of the detected coal reserves of 15 million tons of coal with the general 18° degree angle with safety factors Fs ≥ 1.27 according to the geotechnical standards. As the basis for calculating the slopes were taken physical-mechanical drilling parameters that were realized in 2015-2017, the tests were performed in the geotechnical laboratory at the INKOS Institute which is licensed to ISO 9001/2015 according to geotechnical standards. Based on the obtained results, statistical processing was performed for the classified parameters (physical) and the mechanical parameters obtained with the triangle test, the direct test and the tensile test. By comparing the physicochemical parameters based on the drilling of 2015 and 2017, there is change of values of angle ???0 and cohesion C in the lithological layers due to the presence of moisture. The calculations were carried out with Slide v6 and Geo5 Fine software. Two methods were used during calculation: Circular and Polynomial methods for partial angle of height (h)=30 m and angle (α)=48° with the safety factor Fs<1 and for a general angle of height (h)=55 m with angle (α)=13° with current useable reserves of 6.8 million tons of coal having Safety factor Fs ≥ 1.27.
