Transverse longhole stoping

One popular method of mine sequencing known as the 1-5-9 sequence is outlined in the image to the left of the page. See Also. Stope Sequencing. Drilling, Blasting, and Equipment Drilling. Transverse longhole stoping typically utilizes In-The-Hole (ITH) or top-hammer drills capable of creating holes of 75mm-200mm diameter (3-8 inches).

Hardrock Mining Techniques

Cut and Fill mining is a method of short hole mining used in narrow ore zones. An access ramp is driven off the main level to the bottom of the ore zone to be accessed. Using development mining techniques a drift is driven through the ore to the defined limit of mining.

Development of benchmark stoping widths for longhole

In narrow vein mining it is often not possible to limit stope width to the vein width when utilising blasting for rock breakage. A probabilistic benchmarking method is used to estimate benchmark stability stoping widths and benchmark average stoping width for three commonly used narrow vein
