Broadening the application of seismic monitoring in underground mines
Total Grant Value
2006 - 2009
Seismic monitoring networks in mines and in the Kalgoorlie-Kambalda and Leinster mining districts were maintained and the data analysed. Seismological analysis of several caving mines gave new insight into rock mass failure mechanisms.
Techniques for interpreting seismic data in high stress and rockburst-prone mines were also improved, with an update to MS-RAP being developed.
Keywords: mine seismicity, regional seismic network, underground mine caving, mining risk assessment, rock mass failure
