Application of large-diameter boreholes in underground mines

Abstract This paper discusses various aspects affected by the use of large-diameter boreholes in underground mines. Topics covered consist of noxious fumes, vibrations, post-blast effects, various types of explosives, the cordine system in production blasts, the slider primer system and wall-control methods. In general, the paper is an overview of this important fact of underground mining.

Summary: With several hoots of the whistle, Canada's fiscal engineers are once again cranking up the income tax locomotive, in an effort to inject new stimulus into a stubborn economy. And once again, additional gears, wheels, levers, and other mysterious parts are being added to the already complex machinery in order to accommodate the new push.
This time, a significant new mechanism involves a major overhaul and expansion of the investment tax credit system.
Although the shiny new devices have...

Summary: A bulk mining method is employed at the Lockerby mine resulting in the formation of large muck-piles. If these muck-piles remain in the slopes for some time they may agglomerate to the extent that the muck cannot be removed by a scoop-tram. A laboratory investigation was undertaken with sulphide material from the mine in order to detemine the time that oxidation begins and the flowability of the material as a function of several factors. The laboratory results are applied to the conditions in...
