  • Rock Mass Response to Mining Activities

    Inferring Large-Scale Rock Mass Failure

    By Tadeusz Szwedzicki

    Mining activities may result in rock mass deterioration and instability that may lead to failure both in underground and open pit mines. Such deterioration represents a safety risk and may result in substantial financial losses. Rock mass response may lead to ground subsidence, fall of ground/…
