Mine Shaft Sinking Methods

Ausgabe 012015 The mostly applied shaft sinking method is conventional shaft sinking by drilling and blasting Using this method almost any shaft geometry is feasible and challenging ground conditions can be sunk through with acceptable sinking performances Particularly mucking and hoisting operations of the sinking cycle have a relevant impact on sinking performance and offer Compliance Guidelines for Developing Slope and Shaft Sinking Plans For all methods of coal mining We designed this compliance guide for use in developing a comprehensive slope and shaft sinking plan A typical comprehensive slope and shaft plan should contain the following elements specific to the particular mine and slope and shaft operation

The possibility of increasing the capacity of the shaft in the future should be considered In some cases the cost of the shaft is a limiting factor However considerable time is required for sinking a shaft and there are no returns from the mine until the shaft is in operation For this reason a shaft should be sunk as quickly as possible even though the method used is more Shaft Sinking Methods Caisson Method and Cementation Method Shaft Sinking Mining Technology Method 1 The Piling System This method is known as simply piling or sheet piling and is suited sinking through Method 2 Caisson Methods

Mechanized shaft sinking technology SBR proves itself in Canada In August 2018 a milestone in the mining industry has been reached with the successful completion of two blind shafts to depths of 975 and 1005 meters respectively at the Jansen Potash Project in Saskatchewan Canada When the shaft is sliped a mass of rock from the blast falls down the raise bore hole and forms a piston down the hole This may resulted in an air blast at the bottom of shaft and in the shaft up to surface There also exists a possibility that the plug of rock could get stuck down the hole
