Other books that could be useful and are kept at the library are Rock Slope Engineering by E Hoek and J W Bray (2 nd Edition). The book Fundamentals of Rock Mechanics by Jaeger and Cook, 3 rd Edition is a “classic” that you may want to have it in your library if you are planning practicing rock mechanics/engineering. Homework and Labs. The majority of rock falls in mine operations are structurally controlled. Design is largely controlled by existing structure. It is critical that site characterization be performed so as to identify the structural factors that would affect rock slope angles, drill and blast design, support requirements, resultant dilution and span design, etc.

Hard Rock Miner’s Handbook is a work of the heart. Jack—whose 40+ year career spanned engineering, construction, and operation of mining projects worldwide—conceived of and wrote the first edition of the Handbook, published in June , to assist miners and engineers in the difficult world of hard rock mining. It was his. The most common minerals on earth Information for Educators Mindat Articles The Elements Books & Magazines.

In , initial water sampling of more than 40 mine portals identified the mine sites that were major contributors to the AMD entering the Lower Rock Creek watershed. In , a biological and water monitoring program began in the White Oak Creek and Lower Rock Creek watersheds. Sampling is performed twice a year for macroinvertebrates. Located approximately 25 miles from Lake Pend Oreille and five miles from Noxon, Montana, the proposed Rock Creek mine is a two-phase project. The first is an exploration and evaluation phase to confirm the mineral resource and to conduct additional environmental data collection to confirm the EIS and SEIS prepared by the U.S. Forest Service.

Abstract: Kidd Creek Mine is the deepest active base metal mine in the world, extending to a depth of 3 km below surface. The mine operators and engineers have met the ongoing challenges of mining sublevel open stopes at extreme depth through the utilisation of cutting edge technology, while expanding on a knowledge base encompassing 48 years of continuous operation under increasingly Cited by: 5.

The Kidd Creek copper/zinc mine is located near Timmins, Ontario, Canada. Along with copper and zinc it produces indium, silver-bearing slimes, nickel-copper carbonate, liquid SO2 and sulphuric acid. Kidd Creek is % owned and operated by Xstrata plc, which acquired the complex through its take-over of the former owner, Falconbridge Ltd, in Kidd Mine (Kidd Creek Mine), Kidd Township, Timmins area, Cochrane District, Ontario, Canada: The mine exploits a volcanogenic massive sulphide deposit and has produced Mt grading % Zn, % Cu, 0.

The mine is assessing a plan to take production to by extending further down if trucking costs from the very base would allow continued production. Kidd Creek has hired 23 new mechanics in the last 18 months. The mine has been operating the Sandvik s for one year and the have not seen any issues.

The LHDs are one component of several programs aimed at improving the mine’s net productivity to allow it to more safely transition to increased production rates in more narrow stopes. Although Rock Mechanics addresses many of the rock mechanics issues which arise in underground mining engineering, it is not a text exclusively for mining applications.

It consists of five categories of topics on the science and practice of rock engineering: basic engineering principles relevant to rock mechanics; mechanical properties of rock and rock masses; design of underground 5/5(3).

Kidd Mine or Kidd Creek Mine is an underground base metal mine 24 km (15 mi) north of Timmins, Ontario, is owned and operated by Swiss multinational Glencore Inc. The mine was discovered in by Texas Gulf Sulfur it was sold to Canada Development Corporation, then sold in to Falconbridge Ltd., which in was acquired by Xstrata, which in turn merged with.

Rock mechanics is the application of engineering mechanics to understanding rock mass response to applied disturbances. The topic is a part of the broader subject of geomechanics, which. The Kidd Creek Mine is a volcanic massive sulfide deposit (VMS) which is currently owned by Xstrata.

The money is seen with the copper and zinc that is mined from the ore. The mine was first discovered inand production began in It is expected that mining can continue until The Kidd Creek is classified as the bimodal-mafic VMS type because of the following characteristics: mafic rock dominates with less than 25% felsic rock, mafic and felsic flows, and some debris flow (Franklin et al ).

The ore is hosted within intrusive rhyolite rocks. The clast sizes range from large breccia rocks to tuff-size clast. Near Timmins, Ontario, geologists discovered one of the world’s largest deposits of zinc, copper, lead, silver, and tin. Known as the Kidd Creek deposit, it originally formed on the seafloor around hot springs billion years ago, much as modern black smokers form on the seafloor today.

The Kidd Creek Mine, north of Sudbury, is a wonder of such work. Already the world’s deepest base metal mine, it just keeps going down, plummeting toward a depth of almost ten thousand feet.

And there seems to be no end to its ore. The tunneling there is so extensive that it has caused unnatural seismic movements, known as rock bursts or what.

Kidd Operations has confirmed it is investing a lot of time and effort to try to find a way to extend the life of the massive Glencore Kidd mining complex in Timmins. Mark Furlotte, the Kidd Operations general manager, responded to a query from the Sudbury Mining Solutions Journal to reveal the company has set up exploration drilling to target mineral zones deeper than three kilometers.

Kidd Creek Mine has producedtonnes of base metal ore in copper and zinc since production began in Explor subscribes to the “cluster effect” of volcanogenic massive sulfide (VMS) deposits, comparing the Timmins camp to the Bathurst mining camp where 47 deposits have been found, and the Noranda mining camp where 18 deposits.

But as Semadeni pointed out a month ago at his annual address about Kidd Creek’s Operations, the company is actively searching for addition copper, zinc and silver to mine.

Recent geophysical testing identified preliminary indication of additional resources, whether those resources are of great enough quantities to extend the life of Kidd.
