Classification of Underground Mining Methods Mineral production in which all extracting operations are conducted beneath the ground surface is termed underground mining. Underground mining methods are usually employed when the depth of the deposit andor the waste to ore ratio stripping ratio are
Another misnomer about underground mining, in particular hardrock underground is that the mines are a confined environment so there is a need for a confined space ticket. This is simply untrue. If you have stood in the underground train stations in any major city then you have been in the equivalent of an Australian hardrock underground mine ...
Ultimately, the determination of the amount of airflow required for an underground mining operation or other sub-surface facility can depend on several factors, including the equipment fleet, ambient temperature, rock type, mining method and airway type or use.
