Method for chamber mining when preparing horizons

FIELD: mining.

SUBSTANCE: method of chamber mining when preparing horizons includes division of mine field into excavation areas, development of bed access drifts, extraction of mineral resources with stope chambers in advance or retreat order, delivery of ore with self-propelled equipment, transportation of ore using a conveyor, ventilation of stope chambers using local ventilation fan. Development of horizons is performed in turns, at first the upper horizon and then the lower one. Fresh air is fed through access drifts of the lower horizon, and the outgoing airstream is removed through access drifts of the upper horizon. The sill of the conveyor drift at the lower horizon is deepened relatively to the sill of the mining drifts. The upper horizon includes one transportation drift, and on the lower one includes the conveyor, from which entering the stope chambers is performed.

EFFECT: invention allows to increase effectiveness of stope mining operations and reduce labor costs when extracting mineral resourses by eliminating development of ventilation holes and inter-chamber connections as well as to increase ventilation efficiency of the working area by arranging ventilation and removal of outgoing air stream from access drifts separately from the operation areas.

FIELD: ventilation.

SUBSTANCE: method involves ambient air supply to the station through a ventilation chamber and removal of waste air via tunnels, cross passages and another ventilation chamber. At movement of trains along the line the ambient air is supplied to the station through the ventilation chamber installed on one end face of the station simultaneously via the channels with which the same ventilation chamber is connected to the station and to the tunnel, via which the train departs from the station, and waste air is removed from the station through the ventilation chamber installed on the other end face of the station simultaneously via the channels with which the same ventilation chamber is connected to the station and to the tunnel via which the train arrives at the station. At absence of train movement along the line, the ambient air is supplied to the station through any of the above said ventilation chambers by having switched off the other one, and waste air is removed through ventilation chambers of adjacent stations connected for removal. In case of the train fire at the station the channels with which both ventilation chambers of the station are connected to the tunnels are shut off, and the ventilation chamber through which ambient air is supplied to the station is switched over to an extraction mode, thus removing smoke-filled air from the station simultaneously via the channels with which both ventilation chambers are connected to the station, and ambient air is supplied to the station through pedestrian routes. In case of train fire in the tunnel between adjacent stations, at the station to which passengers being evacuated are moving the ventilation chamber that is the closest to an emergency train is switched over to an inflow mode, and ambient air is supplied through it and through the channel with which the same ventilation chamber is connected to the tunnel to the emergency train, and at the other of the above said adjacent stations the ventilation chamber that is the closest to the emergency train is switched over to the extraction mode, and smoke-filled air is removed from the tunnel with the emergency train through the channel with which the same ventilation chamber is connected to the tunnel to the emergency train; with that, valves are closed in cross passages of the section of the line with the emergency train, and dampers are closed, which are installed at portals with which the tunnel with the emergency train is connected to the adjacent stations.

SUBSTANCE: double-ended method of the deposit opening during underground operations includes shaft sinking of at least two holes, each hole having its own job site. Opening of the deposit is made by underground horizontal and/or inclined workings from each hole. As the shaft sinking progresses the underground horizontal workings are made from the hole at a distance of at least 5 diameters of the hole. Vertical wells are drilled from the surface and horizontal cuts and when the lower horizontal working is reached the well is drilled up to the project diameter of the air raise. Horizontal workings are placed vertically, one by one, at a distance to be determined by technical capabilities of the drilling rig. The upper part of the air raise is made from the surface through quaternary deposits by a usual method. At the first stage each end of the deposit is ventilated separately, at the second stage fresh air is supplied through a pair of combined developments - a borehole and the air riser at one end while outgoing jet is outputted through the combined developments of the other end.

EFFECT: method allows reducing scope of works during shaft sinking, increasing the sinking rate, reducing the period of construction and commissioning of a mine or minery, increasing reliability of ventilation due to ventilation risers.
