This ebook bargains an in-depth research and interpretation tools acceptable to mine-induced seismicity. it really is in line with over forty years of expertise in mine and exploration geophysics. one other specified characteristic of this e-book is the full background of the caving procedure as evidenced by means of the recorded seismicity on the South African copper mine Palabora carry 1. in the past, the literature has in simple terms offered thought and case experiences discussing the translation of effects, and there was no dialogue of the input-data caliber or why a undeniable interpretation strategy was once utilized. This ebook fills that gap.
This ebook is an engaging learn, written via one of many world’s best mine seismologists. It summarises the historical past and development of mine seismology. It outlines the sensible use of again research of knowledge and the way it may be used each day. The booklet explains how mine seismology can be utilized as an efficient tracking instrument for key occasions because the mine progresses in addition to for destiny caving operations.Anthony Allman MAusIMM, CP(Min), RPEQ Antcia Consulting Pty Ltd, Director, Mining Engineer
The content material of the e-book is absolutely reliable and powerful and i've doubtless it will likely be thought of an outstanding contribution for the mining community.Raul Fuentes, Former Director of grasp software in Geomechanics utilized to Mining, Universidad de los Andes, Santiago, Chile
This booklet is lengthy past due and is helping to give a few tough ideas in a fashion that they are often in actual fact understood via non-experts during this zone. Stefan has for my part controlled to take mine seismology from being a black-art right into a great tool to assist make mines a more secure and extra managed setting. Neil Hepworth C. Eng, MIMMM, Geomin Consultorio – Brazil, advisor Mining and Geotechnics
Seismic tracking is a vital instrument in cave administration. the knowledge from tracking permits a few key creation components to be decided together with cave increase premiums, the approximate situation of the cave again, perception into the dimensions of the air hole and permits the monitoring of extensive alterations in pressure. those all help in the daily administration of a secure and winning cave. Dr. Glazer’s ebook offers tips at the software of microseismicity to cave administration via a overview of acceptable conception and extra importantly illustrates its use via case histories, fairly from the Palabora block cave. The textual content could be a superb addition for all practitioners in cave engineering and operations.Allan Moss, normal supervisor – Grasberg Underground Liaison, Copper improvement, Rio Tinto
