AbstractThe following notes have been written after study of a plan presented by Mr. W. Samuel regarding the clay stripping from the South end of the "B" Orebody. Mr. Samuel proposes to reduce the varved clay to a level of approximately 1145 feet in two operations, the clay so removed flowing to Falls Bay. The slopes to the pit are then to be formed by sluicing and pumping the material to Falls Bay. Modifications to this plan are suggested, modifications which call for less removal of material. Limiting heights of banks for particular slopes of banks are also suggested.
