Upcoming Short Course: Open Pit Slope Design

By Steven Hahn, April 10th, 2014 - PERMALINK

Open Pit Slope DesignThis June we’ll be holding our Open Pit Slope Design short course, presented by Felipe Capdeville-Perez, Matthew King. The course begins with the fundamentals of slope design and then progresses from field data collection and QA/QC techniques through to the development of the individual component models that are used to define the geotechnical model. It will then explore different slope design methods and considerations, and present typical slope monitoring and management techniques to evaluate the behaviour and performance of the applied slope designs, finishing with a discussion on best practices for optimization of the slope designs.

The 2-day course will take place 26 – 27 June 2014, in Vancouver, BC. Register before May 26 and receive a 10% early bird discount. For more details or to register, see the course page!

Roof Support Technology Review Updated

By Sahar Pakzad, April 7th, 2014 - PERMALINK

RoofSupportFailure to support the roof of a mine is the greatest cause of accidents in mining. Many a good miner says you can hear the rock talk and so you know to stay away. Colourful, but not sufficient today as the basis for good mining practice.

The review on TechnoMine about Roof Support is a good resource for more information on this topic. This review covers rockbolts and cables, roof bolters, and shotcrete. It also gives links to suppliers and consultants with expertise in roof support, as well as roof bolting software and courses.

Updated Online Course: Bench Face Design in Rock

By Jennifer Lyseng - EduMine Editor, March 12th, 2014 - PERMALINK
We’ve just launched the highly anticipated update for the online course Bench Face Design in Rock by James Mathis PhD. Intended as an instructional course and a technical reference for an audience of mining engineers, engineering geologists and geotechnical engineers concerned with design and maintenance of benched excavations in rock for open pit mining, quarrying or highway construction, Bench Face Design in Rock provides a comprehensive discussion of the parameters and methodology of bench face design in rock, from data collection and basic geotechnical approaches through to the more complex questions of estimating bench face angles and distributions, design sensitivity to rock mass parameters, and the influences of drilling and blasting procedures.   The update includes a new session on photogrammetry and a practical comparison of Discrete Fracture Network (DFN) stability analysis and structure orientation based/fixed discontinuity persistence methods. To view the course or register for certification, see the course page. The post Updated Online Course: Bench Face Design in Rock appeared first on EduMine News.
