Tunnelling: Mechanics, methods, and mistakes

When any underground excavation is made in an already weak rock, it often serves to further weaken the rock above it. This is due to a combination of 1) the excavation activity itself (primarily blasting) weakening the surrounding rocks as a result of shock waves and 2) the removal of supporting rock from underneath a large mass of rock.

The economic analysis of the use of explosives is an important part of blasting operations in mining and construction. Explosives are energy, and the efficient use of this energy is a major factor in keeping rock blasting costs under control. Highenergy explosives enhance fragmentation, which ultimately produces a positive effect on production costs.

SLC mines have the most intensive blasting process of all the mining methods, as generally one or two rings are fired at a time at each drawpoint in order to maximise recovery and reduce dilution. The charging process can be made more efficient by precharging, which is charging rings well ahead of those to be fired, such that the charging operation is kept away from the choked brow.
