This is a practical guide to the latest technologies and developments available for any type of surface or underground excavation. The opening chapters focus on unit operations including drilling, explosives and blasting, mucking, haulage, hoisting, supports and reinforcement, while the following chapters describe excavation techniques for various operations such as tunneling, raising, sinking, drifting, stoping, quarrying and surface mining, underground mining, pillar blasting, and liquidation. The design, planning, and development of excavations is also covered, and special attention is paid to the construction of surface and subsurface excavations, and to new ways of choosing stoping methods through incremental analysis. A final chapter features illustrative case studies on heavy underground blasting during pillar recoveries.
