Underground Mining of Shallow-Dipping Orebodies in

Many underground mining methods rely on blasted rock moving under gravity to report to extraction points. Mining of orebodies dipping between 20 45 degrees poses a unique challenge for mining engineers in that a dip angle in this range will not allow the movement of broken ore down the footwall to the mucking horizon utilising gravity. This is more so in cases where the natural angle of

The design of stable stope spans for shallow mining

2009-8-26  shallow mining operations by A.H. Swart* and M.F. Handley† Synopsis Unplanned stope panel collapses occur on most near-surface and shallow mines in South Africa. Although these incidents often occur during blasting, they pose a major threat to the safety of underground workers and the economic extraction of orebodies.

Depth of Mining Outburst UndergroundCOAL

Depth of mining. As the magnitude of vertical stress increases with the depth of mining, it seems reasonable to say that these stresses will increase the probability of outburst at greater mining depths. However, this does not exclude the chance of outburst at lesser depths. While many parts of the world have not experienced outbursts at depths
