Title A new method for risk assessment of pillar recovery operation
Bibliographic information Dec. 2010, Vol.48, No.10, p.1304-1312. Illus. 24 ref.
Abstract Safe pillar recovery operations can result in better miner safety and more efficient recovery of ore reserves. The most important technical parameters influencing the safety of pillar recovery are reviewed. A method for assessing the overall risk of pillar recovery operations in pre-developed room and pillar mines, by combining all these parameters, is described and applied to a mine in Iran.
