Rock mass properties for underground mines

tm is the ‘tensile’ strength of the rock mass. In order to use the Hoek-Brown criterion for estimating the strength and deformability of jointed rock masses, three ‘properties’ of the rock mass have to be estimated. These are 1. the uniaxial compressive strength s ci of the intact rock elements, 2.

Mineral processing metallurgy Britannica

Mineral processing, art of treating crude ores and mineral products in order to separate the valuable minerals from the waste rock, or gangue. It is the first process that most ores undergo after mining in order to provide a more concentrated material for the procedures of extractive metallurgy.The primary operations are comminution and concentration, but there are other important operations

A review of coal pillar strength formulas SpringerLink

A Review of Coal Pillar Strength Formulas Since 1900 a number of investigators have studied the problem of predicting the strength of coal mine pillars on the basis of compression tests performed on small samples. From these studies, a number of quite different formulas relating compressive strength and sample size and shape factors have been proposed.

[PDF] Estimating the strength of rock materials Semantic

A practical approach for estimating the strength behaviour of rock materials is presented. The demand for data on rock properties in engineering design is considered, and it is shown that, based on the trends observed in the South African mining industry during the last twenty years, simple and easy-to-use methods for the estimation of the uniaxial and triaxial strength of rock materials are

Point-Load Test Mining SGS

Mining › Metallurgy and Process Design The Point-load Test measures the Point Load Strength Index (Is(50)) of rock specimens, and their Strength Anisotropy Index (Ia(50)), which is the ratio of Point Load Strengths in directions that give the greatest and least values. Rock specimens in the form of core (diametral and axial tests), cut

Hard rock revolution on the horizon Continuous mining

C ontinuous mining systems have been established in coal and soft rock mining for about a century now and the technology to cut through hard rock has been successfully used in civil engineering projects since the late 1950s. One would think that by now, continuous hard rock mining would also be a reality but it is not. The possibility of the technology being applied to hard rock mining has in

Metallurgy Wikipedia

Metallurgy is a domain of materials science and engineering that studies the physical and chemical behavior of metallic elements, their inter-metallic compounds, and their mixtures, which are called alloys.Metallurgy encompasses both the science and the technology of metals; that is, the way in which science is applied to the production of metals, and the engineering of metal components used

American Journal of Mining and Metallurgy. 2014; 2(1):17-22. doi: Coal pillars are used to support the overlying roof rock to prevent it from falling. The dilemma with coal pillar stability is that On one hand, the size of the pillar should be as small as possible to enable maximum recovery of coal, while on the other hand, the pillar
