Analysis of the impacts of mining sequence and overburden depth on stability at a dipping limestone mine
Sears, M.M.; Slaker, B.; Rashed, G.; Miller, J.
Ground falls represent a significant hazard at underground mines in the stone, sand and gravel (SSG) sector in the United States. Researchers from the U.S. National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) are conducting detailed investigations into the complex loading conditions at underground stone mines operating in challenging conditions. This paper presents the application of numerical modeling to analyze pillar and roof stability at a dipping underground limestone mine.
