LKAB & MUL: MINING TECHNOLOGY AND ROCK ENGINEERING ASPECTS OF THE RAISE CAVING MINING METHOD

Aktivität: Gespräch oder VortragMitwirkung als Gastredner/-in

Beschreibung

Block caving and sublevel caving have in common that rock mass caves during the extraction of the ore body in a controlled way. As a result regional stress changes, the formation of considerable abutment stresses, large-scale subsidence and significant seismic energy releases occur. Experience shows that these rock mechanics effects become especially critical at great depths as well as in strong competent rock masses. In order to address latter issues the new mining method “Raise Caving” was developed in cooperation between LKAB and Montanuniversitaet Leoben.
