Summary: In designing ore passes for underground mines, specific consideration should be given to unimpaired flow of broken rock, the dump point, and typical practices for overcoming operational difficulties. Design features such as branches, bends, and knuckles should also be considered. This paper provides engineering information and various criteria for designing ore passes, draw points, feeders, and support systems, together with several illustrative examples.

Summary: At last the legal red tape which has tied up flow-through share financing has been cut. New rules effective for deals signed after 1986 simplify flow-through financing by removing the necessity for cumbersome agency relationships. But there is no free lunch—the new rules require increased government reporting. And beware— federal tax reform promises to have a good look at the new flow-through share rules.

Summary: Today's demand for better and more efficient methods inspires new approaches to construction and mine development.
A project at Asarco's Aquarius Mine provided a challenge that resulted in the adaptation of a civil construction technique to a mining application.
This paper describes the construction of an escapeway shaft to surface from the mine's 150 m level. The prime consideration was to provide the most cost-effective method of establishing a shaft collar in the 145 ft (44 m) of water-bea...

Summary: Intensive mechanization and automation in the LKAB, Kiruna Mine in Sweden have resulted in substantial rise in productivity and decrease in production cost. Capital investment in a modern mine today averages a considerable amount per miner and costs increase with requirements for more efficient methods and equipment. Equipment reliability becomes more and more important. Equipment maintenance requirements are directly proportional to equipment reliability and grade of availability. Weaknesses...
