pit design problem under uncertainty, which is taken into account by using the concept of conditional valueatrisk. This concept enables us to incorporate a variety of possible uncertainties, especially regarding grades, costs and prices, in the planning process.
• Frequently, the design objective, or cost function cannot be expressed in the form of simple algebra. Computer programs have to be used to carryout the evaluation on the design objective or costs. For a given design variable, α, the value of the objective function, f(α), .

ABSTRACT: The open pit design and scheduling problem is a largescale optimization problem that has attracted considerable attention during the last 40 years The development of the "knowhow" to improve economics of open pit mining projects through the use of mathematical optimization techniques goes back to early 1960's.
A design module has been developed for integrating slope stability analysis into the data management, ore reserve and pit optimisation processes of an open pit mine. The developed slope stability analysis tools were successfully implemented along the full projected pit model of a surface mine in Canada.
