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.
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...
Underground hard rock mining refers to various underground mining techniques used to excavate hard minerals, usually those containing metals such as ore containing gold, silver, iron, copper, zinc, nickel, tin and lead, but also involves using the same techniques for excavating ores of gems such as diamonds or rubies.
Mimosa is a shallow underground PGM and base metal mining and processing operation located on the Great Dyke of Zimbabwe, 32km west of the town of Zvishavane, approximately 340 km southwest of Harare, the capital of Zimbabwe. On a 50% attributable basis, as at 31 December 2019 Mimosa has 1.69 million oz of 4E PGM Continued
Longwall Mining One of three major underground coal mining methods currently in use. Employs a steal plow, or rotation drum, which is pulled mechanically back and forth across a face of coal that is usually several hundred feet long. The loosened coal falls onto a conveyor for removal from the mine.

Past Shallow Coal Mine Workings Metadata Description Keywords Theme: Shallow Workings, Coal, Mining, Underground, Mining Report, Ground Stability Description Abstract Past shallow coal mine workings are derived from the Coal Authority’s records of underground coal mine workings. This dataset has been created by extracting all those underground workings, or
Stability analysis of underground mining is, generally, complex in nature and is difficult to carry out through analytical solutions more so in case of pot-hole subsidence prediction. Thus, application of numerical modeling technique for simulating and finding a solution is preferred. This stone reports the development of a methodology for simulating the pot-hole subsidence using

complexities associated with such mining) • Intricate infrastructure • Increased electricity costs (for cooling deep underground shafts) • Overall increase in overhead and maintenance costs In the case of some metals, like platinum, depth of mining is rising as metal available at shallow levels has for the most part already been extracted.
