Hard rock mines in deep and high stress environments often require the use of seismic systems to enable operators to manage seismic risk posed to the workforce, the mining investment and the environment. Seismic data is also used in assessing the rock mass response to mining activities where source parameters are used in the interpretation of rock mass failure mechanisms, the calibration of numerical modelling, and the interpretation of failure mechanics of the rock mass.
This hybrid course is designed to introduce mine geotechnical engineers to basic mine seismology concepts and their application in mining. Geotechnical engineers who work on medium to high risk seismic mines would benefit most from this course.

Course topics include:

  • Seismic risk management process
  • Data collection
  • Seismic response to mining
  • Control measures
  • Seismic risk assessment
