Characterization of Rock Mass Fragmentation for Cave Mining

Characterization of Rock Mass Fragmentation for Cave Mining

Jun 25, 2017 Block cave mining is a capital intensive mining method, which requires reliable models to cope with the risks and to build trust for investors. Caving operations are typically influenced by the heterogeneous nature of the rock mass; in particular, the spatial variability of the natural fracture network holds significant implications with ...

Sep 01, 2011 Blast fragmentation has far-reaching effects on the performance of equipment and processes throughout the mine. Fragmentation affects the looseness or diggability of the bench face, which influences excavation efficiency, while the throughput and energy costs of primary crushers are directly related to the input feed rock sizes.

PDF Modelling fines in blast fragmentation and its

In the mining industry blasts are usually designed to fracture the in-situ rock mass and prepare it for excavation and subsequent transport. The run of mine (ROM) fragmentation is considered good when it is fine enough and loose enough to ensure efficient digging and loading operations. Mining optimisation strategy is hence usually focussed on minimising total mining costs and maintaining ...

Sep 19, 2018 Rock from tunnelling and other types of development work has a fine fragmentation. Cut-and-fill mining is a method that normally results in blasted rock with an advantageous size distribution. Block caving on the other hand often results in large amounts of boulders, since blasting of the rock is normally not used.

Fragmentation. Primary fragmentation occurs when the back of the cave fails into the draw column. It is determined by the various characteristics of the rock mass such as intact rock strength, number of joint sets and orientations, induced and in-situ stresses in the rock mass and the orientation of the cave front.
