A surface mine contains pits with mineral endowed rock (or ore). We extract ore that lies within the upper layer of the earth, from surface mines (Fricke, 2006) . This ore can include metals such as iron, copper, coal and gold. There are several methods of surface mining, including open-pit, stripping, dredging and mountain-top removal.

Risk lies at the heart of all mining and nowhere more so than in pit slope design. Mining is principally about two areas of risk; safety and economics. This paper addresses the main elements of pit slope design and presents a view of the state of the art in terms of safety, design, prediction of performance, success and pit slope management.

In underground mining, development required to reach the orebody is much and increases the production time from the start of the development (Haycocks, 1992). Effective mine planning is required to generate profit (Carlyle et al., 2001). Mine production scheduling is an important problem in mine planning (Gershon, 1983).
