Rock Mass Classification For Block Caving Mine Drift ...

A rock mass classification system has been developed that enables the planner or operator of block or panel caving mines to arrive at support recommendations for production drifts. This system has been named the MBR (standing for Modified Basic RMR) System, since it follows closely the Geomachanics System of Bieniawski and incorporates many of ...

While the concept of block caving as a mass mining process is not new, the benefits of cost and increased production makes it an attractive process. The method involves mining deep, large and low grade Ore bodies whereby a large section of rock is undercut, creating an artificial cave that fills with its own debris as it collapses.
