Structural Geology Guidelines for use in Burst-prone Underground Mines Short Course

Is your project or mine in a structurally complex, high stress, potentially rock burst-prone setting?

CEMI is pleased to join Golder Associates and SRK Consulting in hosting a 2-day Structural Geology Guidelines for use in Burst-Prone Underground Mines short course in October 2012. Course Poster

Two chances for you to take advantage of this opportunity!

October 15-16, 2012
08:00 – 17:00
Willet Green Miller Centre – Auditorium
933 Ramsey Lake Road, Sudbury, Ontario

October 18-19, 2012
08:00 – 17:00
Location: Downtown Toronto – more details to follow
Toronto, Ontario


The course will be comprised of technical presentations and hands-on practical sessions focused on providing attendees with an awareness of: the risks posed in burst-prone mines; the structural geology and other geotechnical aspects to pay attention to and measure in drill core and in drift mapping; and the tools to use to optimize design and response effectiveness during project/mine design, development and operation.

Specific sessions will include:

  • An overview of the mine system, rock mass behaviour, and the coupled structural geology rock mechanics approach;
  • A detailed review of the importance of relevant structural geology parameters at the regional and local scale and the case for careful observation and analysis;
  • A discussion, with examples provided, of drill hole and drift mapping structural and other geotechnical data collection techniques and tools used, including data analysis;
  • A practical consideration of the importance of stress and geologic structure interactions in burst-prone underground mines; and
  • Consideration of how to practically integrate stress and structural geology as well as other geotechnical measurements when evaluating the implications for mine design and stope sequencing.
