Underground Mining Methods: Engineering Fundamentals and International Case Studies presents the latest principles and techniques in use today. Reflecting the international and diverse nature of the industry, a series of mining case studies is presented covering the commodity range from iron ore to diamonds extracted by operations located in all corners of the world. Industry experts have contributed sections on General Mine Design Considerations; Room-and-Pillar Mining of Hard Rock/Soft Rock; Longwall Mining of Hard Rock; Shrinkage Stoping; Sublevel Stoping; Cut-and-Fill Mining; Sublevel Caving; Panel Caving; Foundations for Design; and Underground Mining Looks to the Future.Shotcrete is used both aquot;straightaquot; (i.e., applied over welded wire mesh) and reinforced with steel fibres; the ratio of use of ... Depending on local conditions, drifts are driven either with an arched back (in massive, moderately jointed, or blocky ... The result was increasingly frequent ground falls, which prompted numerous emergency changes in the short-term mining plans to replace lost scheduled ore.
