Empirical Design Methods For Underground Mines

June 15, 2017 - June 16, 2017
Vancouver, Canada

InfoMine Inc., 640 - 580 Hornby Street

The ultimate objective of the course is to assist the mine operator in making decisions employing sound geotechnical input with reference to case histories for relevance to safety, weak rock mass assessment, reduction in dilution, and backfill.

This course provides the operators of underground mines with the tools required to make on site pillar and opening stability assessments in order to ensure a safe and cost effective mine operation. Tools for assessing opening stability are provided. Empirical methods for considering the complex interaction of stress, opening geometry, structure, and rock mass are provided. Ample time is given for solving stability problems and participants are strongly encouraged to bring case histories or questions from their own operations.

The course is directed at ground control, mine planning and chief engineers/geologists.

People interested in this course may also want to register for Rock Mass Characterization for Mine Design, scheduled to run in the same week.
