Open cast mining method

FIELD: mining, particularly open cast mining.

SUBSTANCE: method involves excavating large coarse mineral blocks by cutting slots with load-cutters; transporting mineral blocks to loadout level. Breakage face is advanced along strike. Mineral blocks are excavated in down-top direction to the rise by block sliding on trays along face ground to lower horizon with block movement by means of winches to loading area. Blocks laid on trays are loaded so that the trays are retained with rope and case mountings or without it if not required with the use of high-capacity truck-mounted crane. To develop seams having thickness exceeding maximal cutting depth of load-cutter mineral is cut in top-down direction with following cutting of layers each having thickness of not more than 2.2 m. Lower horizon provided with rail track is located at seam floor. The rail track is erected on lower horizon. Here blocks are loaded into cars. Cut mineral blocks are independently lowered from breakage faces at each layer to lower load horizon along movable mechanized metal structures provided with smooth metal descend having rounded ends, hoisting winch and bypassing block installed on vertical post. Vertical post height provides free snake line movement for cut mineral block movement. Blocks are separately loaded in cars from each layer.

The invention relates to mining and can be used for open development of mineral deposits, deposited layers or deposits gentle fall.

The method consists in the extraction of fossil without its destruction, by cutting out a large rectangular blocks, which has several major advantages unattainable in other ways.

The known method of surface mining of bedded deposits of minerals /1/ by softening array blasting operations and loading rock mass excavators in railroad cars or trucks heavy-duty trucks.

The closest is the way of Kaimana underground mining of mineral deposits, including its production cutting of the bottom of the array blocks using electric and gidroliznyh machines. The blocks in the process of cutting out the worn metal frames to make with blocks loading and transport operations (see RF patent №2269003 C2, AS 41/16, 2006).

Electric machines cut two slits parallel to the plane of the layer: at its borders with the roof and the ground. Lateral and rear vertical slots are cut gidroliznyi machines. Shipping on fossil lava is on the delivery trucks on the corner rails with cargo winches. Mount lava is clubs the mi mechanized hydraulic roof supports. In relation to the open development technology this method contains some unnecessary processes. This cutting of the upper slit in the seam and fastening. The number of processes is irrational with respect to the open development technology. This cross-cutting and rear vertical slots gidroliznyi machines, as well as shipping cut blocks to the sides of the face on the delivery trucks.

Lateral and rear vertical slots on open works better to cut electric machines. Application gidroliznyh machines, producing cutting array thin water jet water jet high pressure, in this case, unnecessarily complicates the production and increases the cost of production. On public works develop the reservoir has more exposed surface. On this surface can accommodate the equipment and running production processes, in particular the electric cutting machines transverse and rear vertical slots.

When working Stopes along the strike of the seam with the issuance of units of fossil-dip does not require the use of special hauling vehicles (delivery trucks), because moving blocks can be carried out with the use of cargo winches by sliding on metal pallets. At small angles of incidence of the reservoir, magdadagdag efforts cargo winches plus the force of the inclined part of the weight of the unit is insufficient to overcome the friction force of sliding metal tray about rocks soil stope, can be used pallets on the rollers of small diameter.

The objective of the invention is to substantially increase productivity, economic efficiency, safety and environmental remediatio on cuts by creating a production technology of cut blocks fossil from an array of electric machines and loading cut blocks into wagons or trucks. The non-use of blasting for loosening the array fossil can significantly increase the security of wastewater treatment works. Nerazresene array, the development of its large blocks leads to the elimination of fossil placers and to a sharp reduction in the allotment of it of harmful gases and dust and creates a truly environmentally friendly production. The transition from mining in placer mining in large blocks also allows you to significantly increase economic efficiency by eliminating inefficient processes with application malacosoma excavators, bulldozers and scrapers especially at low layers, which greatly increases the cost of treatment.

This object is achieved in that for cutting blocks of fossil all types of cracks: transverse, bottom and back are cut electric machines. Cutting blocks in the lower gap sequentially one after the other after the movement of the cutting e the electric machine drawn massive metal pallets. The contours of pallets correspond to the cross section extracted blocks. After cutting the rear vertical slit blocks fossil under its own weight firmly sit on pallets. Next, cut the blocks down on metal pallets of cargo winches on the bottom of the cargo horizon and pull up another cargo winch for crane high capacity for loading units in rail cars or trucks.

The invention is illustrated by drawings, each of which shows the following:

Figure 1 - chasing (schematically in profile) electric machine No. 1 transverse slit in the array of minerals: 1 - electric machine # 1; 2 - transverse slit in the bottom hole array; 3 - cutter bar cutting a transverse slit.

Electric machine No. 1 in the process of cutting a transverse slit is moved perpendicular to the front stope from its edge at a distance of 60-80 m to ensure the scope of work for cutting blocks other bromaline for a few days. The distance between the transverse slits is equal to the length of cut blocks of fossil and accepted the conditions of his transportation to the consumers. For the preparation of the excavation site of a fossil to the development of transverse cracks should be cut along the entire length of the stope.

F. the Gura 2, a and b - electric cutting machine No. 2 lower slots and electric machine No. 3 rear vertical slits; 2 front view side stope and 2B is a view in plan: 4 - electric machine # 2, cutting through the lower gap; 5 - electric machine # 3, cutting through a given vertical slit; 6 - cutting bar electric machine №3; 2 - transverse slit; 7 - cutting bar electric machine No. 2; 8 - the inner edge of the lower slit; 9 - rear vertical slot; 10 - metal pallets involved in the lower slot.

Electric machines # 2 and # 3 are moved along the stope using a rope, stretched along the path of motion. The cable wound on the drum, located in the input part of bromaline. From the other end of the cable secured to the spacer rack or peg driven into the array fossil. Electric machine No. 2 is moved through the soil stope butt to the chest of the face. Its cutter bar during movement of the machine slots in the array fossil bottom slit on the border with soil slaughter on the accepted depth. When using electric machines "Ural-33", produced Kopeysk the plant, according to the technical feature of the machine to its maximum depth of 2.2 m, and the maximum working speed when cutting a slit 2.8 m/min, the thickness of the slit 14 cm (maximum).

Electric machine No. 3 moves electric machine No. 2, being n the Nude side surface of the reservoir. In order cutter bar, cut through the rear vertical slit, it must be directed vertically downwards. Therefore, the electric machine No. 3, moving parallel to the stope on an exposed surface of the reservoir, and electric machine No. 1 is on the side. Between electric machines # 2 and # 3 is maintained a distance required for on this site stope was laying metal pallets in the bottom slot. Figb dotted line shows the position in lower slots involved in her pallet.

Figure 3 - a metal tray and expanded cable snap-unit fossil for its transportation and loading, type in the plan: 11 - Central supporting ring; 12 - side a supporting ring; 13 - corner loops for retracting pallets in the lower gap; 14 - hooks for strapping the cable ends and snap; 15 - loops for strapping the cable ends from the cargo winches.

Metal pallet is a massive steel plate, corresponding to the cross section extracted blocks and thickness sufficient to withstand the weight of a unit of fossil (21 t) when handling without deformation. The pallet has a metal loop 13 for slinging rope ends when it is retracted into the lower slot and the loop 15 for slinging the cable ends from the cargo winches when his lane is the displacement of the loading on the horizon.

Rope rigging required for lifting heavy blocks of fossil when handling. It consists of a Central and two side rings and six cable ends. Four cable end with one hand free and have the ends of a supporting hook 14. The Central ring has welded to it a semi-circle that clings to the hook of the crane loading blocks. Cable snap-fits over the cut blocks immediately after his removal from the bottom of the array when it is preparing to descend to the lower horizon.

Figure 4 - a metal tray, cable accessories and canvas for zacherley sides of the block of fossil before his descent to the lower horizon, a view in plan: 16 - cloth zacherley sides of the block; 17 - hooks for strapping shrouded blade.

If the array fossil loose and destroyed during transport blocks, the first before installing the snap-in unit of fossil must first be shrouded on the sides of the dense material, which then is put on the cable snap. As can be seen in figure 4, on the one hand two cable end sewn into choline canvas. When will be raised up Central and side slinging rings, choline the canvas is fitted around the block and secured by the hooks 17. Then on the sides of the block down four free is breaking the cable end and the hooks 14 stopouts to the rest of the loops of the pallet.

Figure 5, a and b - retraction of the metal pan in the bottom slot, 5A - view the profile in cross-section transverse slit and 5B is a view in plan: 18 - the lower gap; 19 - wire cable ends for retracting the pallet.

Figa and b graphically presents the process of retracting the pallet 10 in the lower gap 18 two cable ends 19, which zastropovana their hooks and loops 13 of the pallet. Retraction is performed by two workers who, holding the free ends of the cables are moved on an exposed surface mined seam along the transverse slits in the direction opposite from the stope. In this case, both the cable end to pass through the adjacent transverse slit from top to bottom from the workers to the loops of the pallet, pulling it in the bottom slot. After the pallet is fully retracted into the slot, the workers return to venotomy the pallet and using poles with curved ends pull out of the loops of the pallet hooks the cable ends and pull of the transverse slits themselves rope ends.

Figure 6 - scheme of development of the mineral from the way Professor Kaimana, view in plan: 4 - electric machine # 2, cutting through the lower gap; 5 - electric machine # 3 cutting the rear vertical slot; 10 - metal pallet, before pulling it in the bottom slot; 20 - winch for lifting pallets on Oistamo slaughter; 21 - unit fossil, and belonged to neither the deposits of horizon slide on pallets using cargo winch; 22 - cargo winch for delivery of the blocks on the lower horizon; 23 - unit fossil pull to the place of loading; 24 - winch for pulling blocks to the place of loading; 25 - large-capacity crane for loading blocks in cars; 26 - railway wagons mining blocks; 27 - crane for loading pallets from cars to trucks horizon.

Figure 6 shows schematically the development of the gently dipping reservoir of fossil large blocks on the way Professor Kaimana. The entire excavation area cut electric machine No. 1 transverse slits 12 bars. Along the stope moved two electric machines: # 2 and # 3. Machine # 2 moves on the ground face close to his chest. Machine # 3 moves on the naked side surface of the reservoir parallel to the stope on the distance of the width of the capture of the electric machine from the edge of the face. To place bookmarks pallets in the lower gap these bromaline the pallets are fed from the bottom of the cargo horizon with a cargo winch 20, located on the upper horizon in the area of its junction with clearing face. On the lower horizon cargo pallets are unloaded together with rope cigolini snap crane 27 of railway cars filed under loading blocks fossil. Then they tightened the winch 24 to the lower area with the voltage, where stopouts cable end of the winch 20 to lift to place bookmarks in the bottom slot.

Before descending to the bottom of the cargo horizon carved block of fossil 21 is shifted from the initial position in the array using the winch 22 for a short distance to mount cable (and cigolini, if necessary) snap-in. Then use the winch 22 block descends along the face on dip on the lower horizon. In the zone of the lower pair of slaughter delivered unit stroumsa cable end of the winch 24 and tightened to the crane for loading into wagons or trucks.

Figure 7 - scheme of descent carved block from fossil stope upper layer on the lower cargo horizon with the development of thick flat layer by layer, frontal views: 21 - descent mining unit of fossil; 22 - cargo winch, used to move the block along the bottom and on the descent; 28 mobile mechanized metal construction for lowering blocks; 29 - bypass block; 30 - metal stand bypass the block.

The use of the mobile mechanized steel structures for descent blocks from fossil stope developing the upper layer of thick layers on the bottom of the cargo horizon, enables you to efficiently develop on layering scheme powerful sloping strata of the way of the Professor To the Riemann problem. The layer thickness, which is taken out by one clearing face, is determined by the depth of capture of the electric machine. Therefore the power of the developed layer may not exceed the maximum depth electric machine 2.2 m Lower cargo horizon, which runs the railway track and where the cargo is loaded blocks in cars, is located on the ground developing a powerful formation. On bottom of the cargo horizon fall extracted blocks from fossil faces of each layer. The development of the layers is made from the top down. Loading blocks in the cars performed separately at each mechanical shutter which is moved on the rollers after clearing face of each layer. When this is achieved the maximum concentration of mining operations on one freight horizon, because the load of the extracted blocks from all layers is one downloadable composition.

The way Professor Kaimana mineral development on open work permits to achieve high performance even on the reservoir of small capacity. So when the power of the shallow aquifer in 2 m mined blocks with dimensions 3 m×2.2 m×2,0 m With a speed of electric machines 2,8 m/min, the rate of admission to lower freight horizon cut blocks is 1.07 minutes When lifting the weight of 1.45 t/CBM weight of each block extending t is so 19,1 This gives the watch a performance of one stope 1080 t/H. Since the idle driving electric machine No. 2 takes a little time, as is done with the help of the winch 22 without electric machine from the operating position, the overall average performance is almost not reduced, accounting for 24 tonnes per day.

When developing a powerful reservoir layers by way of Professor Kaimana daily production from the reservoir consists of production on each layer. Therefore, when developing a reservoir with a capacity of 11 m, developed in five layers with a capacity of 2.2 m each, total production from the area will be equal to 24 tonnes×5=120 tonnes/day.

An important advantage of the method of development is that the high performance of mine sites is also achieved on polomosnih formations that many of the cuts are not being developed, as are considered substandard. So on the reservoir with a capacity of 1 m average daily production can be increased to 10-12 tonnes per day.

Very high performance, as well as the non-use of expensive mining equipment: excavators, bulldozers, scrapers, etc. greatly reduces cleanup work when they are doing way Professor Kaimana make them cost-effective.

This method of exploitation of mineral resources significantly increases without the security and sustainability of wastewater treatment works in connection with non-use of blasting. The failures of electric detonators, not exploding the explosive cartridges in the coal wells then explode on detonation when the excavators or bulldozers, seriously injuring workers. No bulldozers removes the risk of severe or fatal injury tractor from side tipping or overturning of the back of the tractor during its movement on an inclined rough surface mined seam in connection with the collapse of the cab of a heavy motor, reinforced by the action of a large overturning moment when dumping.

Development of fossil large blocks, you can create sections in ecologically clean production. No blasting during mining of fossil allows you to avoid creating dust clouds, especially on deep cuts hanging, not scattered in the atmosphere, poisoning the environment and causing occupational diseases of miners. Nerazresene fossil extraction leads to a reduction in 3-4 times the emissions of harmful gases contained in the fossil. Nephaline in the context of fossil placers dramatically improves the environment.

Extraction of minerals by way of Professor Kaimana gives many advantages and further transportation of production to consumers. So almost half gr increases the forth railway cars on the placement of the extracted mineral. This is because the volumetric weight in fossil blocks much more than its weight in the filling, when transported fossil placers. Increase one and a half times the capacity of the cars, respectively, in half reduces the need for cuts in the number of cars for loading, the length of freight trains, the length of the train platforms station railway tracks, etc. When equipping rail freight sufficient number of powerful locomotives capable one and a half times more heavier trains of the same number of cars, with the current development of railway lines and loading wagons fossil in large blocks by half will increase rail capacity on major freight routes. For Russia, which has the most basic of large mining enterprises located in the Eastern and Western Siberia, and the main consumers in the European centre and abroad, removed to a distance of 4-5 km, is very important.

When transporting production in large units are greatly simplified and are becoming less expensive handling, storage, port terminals, transportation of fossil marine vessels and other

With regard to transportation and storage of coal mining its large blocks gives two vagnerplast: will not occur spontaneous combustion of coal and it is not freezing in the winter. These phenomena are currently very seriously complicate the work of many industrial enterprises. Substantial savings on rail transport, handling, sorting and storage for fossil Russia as a mining country is of paramount importance.
