'numerical modelling of mining subsidence, upsidence and,ground subsidence due to mining has been the subject of intensive research for several decades, and it remains to be an important topic confronting the mining industry today. in the southern coalfield of new south wales, australia, there is particular concern about subsidence impacts on incised river valleys – valley closure, upsidence, and the resulting localised loss of surface water under.1.1 phases of a mining project - elaw,method called ‘stoping’ or ‘block caving,’ sections or blocks of rock are removed in vertical strips that leave a connected underground cavity that is usually filled with cemented aggregate and waste rock. although underground mining is a less environmentally-destructive means of gaining access to an ore deposit, it is often more costly.

block caving mining is typically utilized in hard rock environments and involves extraction of massive volumes of ore and is characterized by discontinuous subsidence. in this case, large scale surface displacements manifest in formation of a crater and stepped terraces or major discontinuities on the surface profile.

late nineteenth century (brown, 2003). there are several different methods of cave mining, including block, panel, sublevel and inclined. this thesis focuses specifically on block/panel caving, in which an ore column of finite width, length and height is drawn from a horizontal array of drawpoints at its base.

the caving angle referred to by laubscher is defined by van as et al. as the angle of the line extending from the edge of the extraction level to the edge of the zone of active caving ().the caved zone is usually located directly above the undercut footprint and thus is characterized as having the greatest surface disturbance, usually manifested as a crater filled with broken, irregular blocks.

block caving is technically complex, but it is also one of the safest and most cost-effective methods of mining ore from deep below the ground as it uses the force of gravity. put simply, a void is created under the ore body, which then collapses gradually under its own weight.

the block caving mining method is being increasingly applied as a mass mining method used to exploit base metals and diamond resources. in block cave mining, geotechnical monitoring is fundamental to the successful management and operation of the mine.
mined by block caving. if an orebody is suitable for mining by block caving, the fragmentation characteristics will have a bearing on the method of ore extraction. suitability of an orebody to block caving ideally the orebody should be such that the rock within the stope fails readily and the area outside the stope remains intact.

block caving is a large-scale or bulk mining method that is highly productive, low in cost, and used primarily on massive deposits that must be mined underground. it is most applicable to weak or moderately strong ore bodies that readily break up when caved. both block caving and longwall mining are widely used because of their high productivity.
