In order to minimize production costs at the level of a stope, in the Jiul Valley coal mines - Romania, it is necessary to determine the Optimum combination of production factors according to the Cutting operations to be used; one should also consider the fact that within the pit coal extraction process we cannot identify a continual and derivable production function that would imply an infinity of combinations of production factors; through combining certain exploitation methods non-strict complementarities are thus provided.
