This study built on the comprehensive database of nearly 800 rockfalls and related data from 1993 – 2003 to improve understanding of the nature of rockfall hazards and risks in Australian mines. Some reduction of risk took place due to changes in development mining practices, but was not sustained.

The report also proposes a methodology to assess rockfall risks.

This project is an extension to M0341.
