More and more often, and on an increasingly large scale, the geological resistance index (GSI) system is used for the design and practice of the mining process. The GSI, is a unique system for classifying the mass of rocks, linked to the parameters of rock strength and mass distortion, based on the generalized criteria of Hoek-Brown and MohrCoulomb. The GSI can be estimated using standard and in situ tables by direct surface observations in underground or surface mining. The GSI value provides a numerical representation of the overall Geotechnical quality of the rock mass. The method for determining GSI using photographic images of the in situ rock mass, with image processing technology, fractal theory and artificial neuronal network (ANN), is already known and successfully applied in several projects.
