mining - Horizontal openings: drifts Britannica

mining - mining - Horizontal openings: drifts: All horizontal or subhorizontal development openings made in a mine have the generic name of drift. These are simply tunnels made in the rock, with a size and shape depending on their use—for example, haulage, ventilation, or exploration. A drift running parallel to the ore body and lying in the footwall is called a footwall drift, and drifts ...

Drift mining - WikiMili, The Free Encyclopedia

2019-3-25  Drift mining is either the mining of an ore deposit by underground methods, or the working of coal seams accessed by adits driven into the surface outcrop of the coal bed. [1] A drift mine is an underground mine in which the entry or access is above water level and generally on the slope of a hill, driven horizontally into the ore seam. [2] Random House dictionary says the origin of the term ...

2011-1-1  Abstract. Mine haulage drifts are the arteries of any mine, as they are used to transport the valuable ore out of the mining zones as well as to move operators and equipment. Hence, their stability is crucial in underground mines. Drift instability could lead to serious consequences such as injuries, production delays and higher operational cost.

Safe mining practices under wide spans in underground

2019-7-1  Barrick’s Cortez Hill underground mine tested the underhand drift and fill approach by exposing the CRF up to 10.7 m in 2016 . The CRF was designed to have a 28-day uniaxial compressive strength of 4.8 MPa at a binder content of 7.5%. From the same reference, 97% of the test samples exceeded the design strength based on 511 data points.

Our underground mines - LKAB

In order to mine iron ore underground, we have to build transport routes in the rock, i.e. tunnels known as drifts. Development consequently entails making preparations for mining. A development drift is blasted directly through the ore body and, if necessary, the walls and roof are reinforced with bolts, mesh and sprayed concrete.

Drifts/Inclined Shafts Introduction underground COAL

Drifts/Inclined Shafts. The angle at which a drift becomes an inclined shaft is somewhat subjective, but there is some agreement that anything above 30 o to the horizontal is a shaft, not a drift.. A major advantage of drift or inclined shaft access versus vertical shaft access is the ability to move large volumes of equipment, materials and personnel in a properly designed and equipped drift ...
