The design of stable stope spans for shallow mining operations

mining operations. This paper describes the factors governing the stability/instability of stope panels in order to define a suitable design methodology for shallow mining operations. Using this methodology, rock mechanics practitioners and mine planners should be able to identify and quantify the critical factors influencing the stability of stope panels. The critical factors should then be ...
