Project Theme
Engineering in Highly Stressed Rock Masses
Project Period
2000 - 2001


From 1996 an increasing number of mines undertook to document rockfalls, with variable standards of reporting.

The database assembled by this project makes possible identification of where most of the risk lies and evaluation of the impact of changes in industry practice.

New standard reporting practices are recommended, and details of the relations between various ground support practices and rock mass failures are discussed at length.

The research is continued in M0360.
