    Abstract : For an efficient mining operation, it is essential to have as much information as possible aboutthe ore to be excavated and the rock masses surrounding the ore. Geological information andthe content and distribution of extractable minerals, are central concerns for long term mineplanning. READ MORE

  2. 2. Listening to the story of the rock mass : The integration of conventional and unconventional data to understand rock mass behaviour at the Kiirunavaara Mine

    Author : Jessica Vatcher; Stephen D McKinnon; Jonny Sjöberg; Dick Stacey; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Mining and Rock Engineering; Gruv- och Berganläggningsteknik;

    Abstract : The need to understand rock mass behaviour has never been greater; as mining globally progresses deeper to extract the precious resources humankind needs to maintain and forward our lives, we encounter rock behaviours associated with deep mining. These environments typically experience seismicity (including fault slip), rock bursting, strain bursting, spalling, aseismic movement along pre-existing discontinuities, and ground falls. READ MORE

  3. 3. Evaluation of rock mass strength criteria

    Author : Catrin Edelbro; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Mining and Rock Engineering; Gruv- och Berganläggningsteknik;

    Abstract : Knowledge of the rock mass behaviour in general, the failure process and the strength in particular, is important for the design of all kinds of underground excavations. One of the most common ways of estimating the rock mass strength is by using a failure criterion. READ MORE

  4. 4. Analysis of Excavation Damage, Rock Mass Characterisation and Rock Support Design using Drilling Monitoring

    Author : Jeroen van Eldert; Håkan Schunnesson; Daniel Johansson; David Saiang; Thomas Dalmalm; Luleå tekniska universitet; []

    Abstract : Prior to an underground excavation a site investigation is carried out. This includes reviewing and analysing existing data, field data collected through outcrop mapping, drill core logging and geophysical investigations. READ MORE

  5. 5. Drill Monitoring for Rock Mass Assessment in Tunnelling

    Author : Jeroen van Eldert; Björn Nilsen; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Mining and Rock Engineering; Gruv- och berganläggningsteknik;

    Abstract : Site investigations for tunnel projects are often unable to determine rock mass conditions accurately for the entire tunnel, as these investigations obtain qualitative data for only limited parts of the tunnel. This is the case at the Stockholm Bypass project in Sweden. READ MORE
