MINE DEVELOPMENT ACCESS TO DEPOSIT

2012-9-6  The Southern African Institute of Mining and Metallurgy Platinum 2012 101 S.M. Rupprecht MINE DEVELOPMENT ACCESS TO DEPOSIT S.M. Rupprecht University of Johannesburg Abstract A deposit to be mined by underground methods can be accessed by a number of methods: • Adit • Decline or ramp • Inclined shaft • Vertical shaft.

Novel Excavation and Construction Method for a Deep

Dewatering using the dewatering systems composed of diaphragm walls and pumping wells is commonly adopted for deep excavations that are undertaken in deep aquifers. However, dewatering can sometimes induce environmental problems, especially when diaphragm walls cannot effectively cut off the aquifers. This paper mainly presents an innovative excavation technique combining dewatering excavation

The ES will be comprised of surface support facilities, a 1480-ft-deep circular shaft lined with concrete to a finished inside diameter of 12 ft, lateral excavations and test installations extending up to 200 ft from the shaft, and long lateral borings

Deep Mining: A Rock Engineering Challenge SpringerLink

2019-4-13  Increasing demand for metals caused by global economic growth and exploitation of shallow mineral deposits forces mineral extraction to go deeper. A direct consequence of this development is an increase in rock pressure-related mining problems. The role of rock engineering in the design and operation of deep mines is discussed in detail. Critical issues are the rock fracturing around mining

Evaluation of vertical shaft stability in underground

2021-6-26  Shaft stability evaluation (SSE) is one of the most crucial and important tasks in view of the role of vertical shaft in mining engineering, the accuracy of which determines the safety of on-site workers and the production rate of target mine largely. Existing artificial methods are limited to the amount of data and complex process of modeling as well as rare consideration of comprehensive

Handbook to best practices for mine shafts protection

2015-3-27  For abandoned mine shafts, some problems linked to deterioration of the sealing structure at the shaft head, or movement of backfilling material in the shaft have been observed. It is also common to find mine shaft opened even decades after mining activity. With time, it is also possible that mine shafts be localisable only

Some Challenges of Deep Mining ScienceDirect

2017-8-1  For classical underground mining, that is, where miners extract ore via shafts, tunnels, and various mining methods, the depth to which the mine can be operated economically depends on the market value of the ore extracted. Thus, for a deposit with a gold content of 10 g·t −1 and a market price for gold of $40 g −1, the ore is worth $400 t
