ROCK MASS CHARACTERIZATION AND CONCEPTUAL MODELING OF THE PRINTZSKÖLD OREBODY OF THE MALMBERGET MINE, SWEDEN (2013)
Umar S. B. , Sjöberg J. et al.
<p style="text-align: justify;">The LKAB Malmberget Mine is mined using sublevel caving. This mining method is cost-effective but results in successive caving of the host rock and mining-induced ground deformations. Consequently, re-locations of residential ...
Filed under: Mining Engineering - Mine Rock Behavior - ClassificationReference: Journal of Earth Sciences and Geotechnical Engineering, vol. 3, no. 4, 2013, 147-173 ISSN: 1792-9040 (print), 1792-9660 (online) Scienpress Ltd, 2013
SUBSIDENCE: AN OVERVIEW OF CAUSES, RISKS AND FUTURE DEVELOPMENTS FOR COAL SEAM GAS PRODUCTION (2013)
The occurrence of subsidence, either by natural or anthropogenic factors, is of concern in engineering practice due to the potential impacts on infrastructure, natural resources and the environment. Subsidence is a complex phenomenon involving different processes ...
<div style="text-align: left;">After a brief review of a number of developments of unsaturated soil mechanics, the paper presents some applications to engineering problems. The first case involves the collapse of a residual soil in <div style="text-align: ...

Stark T. D. , Newman E. J. et al.
Many states allow construction of landfills over previously mined areas. However, mitigation of the underground mines by filling or removal is often required prior to landfill construction. A settlement analysis for the proposed vertical expansion of a residual ...

Deulofeu C. , Serratosa J. et al.
An essential characteristic of this stretch is that it has been built under the water table by excavating in very heterogeneous soils, composed of granular soils and rocks of considerable resistance which has created numerous problems during the construction ...

Growth and subsurface development of three sinkholes in Kansas with seismic methods.
Filed under: Engineering Geology - Karst & SinkholesReference: Open-file Report 2008-18
<p>This paper describes the results using data from ALOS and ENVISAT satellites for the purpose of subsidence monitoring over underground coal mine sites in the state of New South Wales, Australia, using the differential interferometric synthetic aperture ...
Mark C. , Chase F. E. et al.
Multiple seam interactions are a major ground control hazard in many U.S. underground coal mines. The two most common types are: Undermining, where stress concentrations caused by previous full extraction in an overlying seam is the primary concern, and Overmining, ...

Ericson J. P. , Vörösmarty C. J. et al.
An assessment is made of contemporary effective sea-level rise (ESLR) for a sample of 40 deltas distributed worldwide. The deltas in this study represent all major climate zones, levels of population density, and degrees of economic development.

Bauer R. A. , Trent B. A. et al.
The ISGS has prepared this publication in order to provide information to Illinois homeowners concerned with or experiencing subsidence problems associated with past mining activity. Common damages and problems associated with subsidence are described. Some ...
