Mine seismicity and rockburst risk management – phase II
Total Grant Value
Engineering in Highly Stressed and Complex Rock Masses
2003 - 2006
Further developing methods and outcomes from M0328, this project had three objectives: maximize the use of seismic monitoring for understanding mine seismicity, develop a quasi-real-time seismic hazard map, and perform seismic risk analyses. By the end of the project the software developed was in use at 15 mines in Australia and Canada.
Seismic hazard was shown to correlate strongly to faults, mining width and rock compressive strength, among other factors.
