In Situ Stress at the Lucky Friday Mine (In Four Parts)

By: J. K. Whyatt

ABSTRACT: The U.S. Bureau of Mines conducted an overcore stress measurement on the 5300 level of the Lucky Friday Mine, Mullan, ID, to investigate the stress regime around an experimental stope in a rock-burst-prone mine. The result indicated a stress field with unexpected magnitude and orientation [F1 . 135 MPa (19,600 psi) oriented S 80E W]. An unusual amount of rock-burst activity was encountered during subsequent excavation. A careful review of the overcore data sugg...

Treatment of Fluvially Deposited Streamside Mine Waste : Material ...

By: Anthony J. Paulson

ABSTRACT: The size separation of flood plain material contaminated with mine waste was tested to determine if the interaction of water flow with geochemical processes could be changed sufficiently to reduce release rates of metals in a manner that would allow on-site disposal of all material as the sole remediation action. Size separation reduced Zn release by 60% over a 270-day period, partially by changing hydrogeochemical conditions and partially by the flushing actio...

Treatment of Fluvially Deposited Streamside Mine Waste : Material ...

By: Anthony J. Paulson

ABSTRACT: Three mine-waste-contaminated materials from the flood plain of Canyon Creek, ID, were separated by size to determine if the amount of on-site metal release could be reduced. Comparing weighted-average metal release of damp-screened, sized fractions with metal release from original materials suggested that separation marginally reduced metal releases. In contrast, wet screening of all three material types led to significant reductions in metal release without r...

Performance of a New Personal Respirable Dust Monitor for Mine Use

By: Jon C. Volkwein

ABSTRACT: A personal dust monitor (PDM) was developed to measure respirable coal mine dust mass to provide accurate exposure data at the end of a work shift. Additionally, the new monitor continuously displays nearreal- time dust exposure data during the shift. The PDM uses a tapered-element oscillating microbalance to measure the mass of dust deposited on a filter and continually displays the cumulative exposure concentration data. The accuracy and precision of the inst...
