The International Seminar on Design Methods in Underground Mining focused on both the numerical and empirical methods used for the design of underground metalliferous mines. This new seminar examined case studies where design methods have been successfully applied. These proceedings address a wide spectrum of themes that are central to the application of design methods in underground mines.
These proceedings contain 39 technical papers on topics such as numerical modelling, designing for seismicity, optimisation of design, pillar design, design in narrow vein mining, input data for design, ground support, dilution control, orepass design, planning, design, production, financial input and geotechnical design. Accompanying these proceedings is a CD with colour figures featured in the publication.
