The invention relates to the mining industry, in particular to the development of alluvial deposits of minerals, including the development of alluvial placer deposits of valuable minerals and precious metals, including gold, silver, platinum and other

There is a method of hydraulic borehole mining of minerals from placer deposits (A.S. No. 989072, publ. 15.01.1983), including the opening of the productive formation production wells drilled up to his feet, the translation of minerals in quicksand condition by injection of liquid reagent, the issuance of the resulting slurry to the surface and filling the exhaust chambers of overlapping rocks, which additionally are drilling injection and these pumping wells.

The disadvantage of this method is the incomplete development of placer deposits of minerals, i.e. not all of the placer Deposit is transferred to the slurry, which further large losses is given to the surface.

There is also known a method of disclosure of mineral deposits, practicing their geotechnological methods, including the construction of the shaft in the coastal zone of the productive placer deposits, sinking horizontal underground mine workings below the bottom of the float productive placer deposits in the area is relatively resistant rocks of the construction of the inclined rising production wells jumptv, installation pulpotomy pumps and slurry pipelines in the workings and in the trunk, pump the ore pulp to the surface (Whirrling "Drilling special purpose, Tomsk, Ed. TPU, 2006, str-149, 4.3, table 4.2.). In addition, it is known that under favorable hydrogeological conditions in the drainage systems can be used disposal wells or through filters, which is a vertical wells, equipped with end-to-end filter columns, the faces of the wells included in the underground mine workings. Drain the water through the filters come in mine workings, and on him in a special drains (Reference drainage rocks. Under the arms. Iscancel, M. Nedra, 1984, p.67, 106, 209, 495, RISD, V, tabl. rasd). Favorable hydrogeological conditions: stable levels of water content, low levels of pressure and others allow the use of vertical wells through the filter columns in the development of irrigated alluvial deposits.

The closest in technical essence is "the Way of extraction of useful components from underwater formations through wells" (RU # 2026490, publ. 09.01.1995 g), including the sinking of vertical wells, drilling wells in the area productive placer deposits, of which hydro produce erosion Rossin the x productive deposits and send the resulting pulp in the direction of the vertical hole, from which the hydraulic ejector produce the issuance of the pulp to the surface.

The disadvantage of these methods is incomplete practicing productive placer deposits, as extracted not the entire array of productive deposits, and, in addition, in the process of testing is Calmette filter part through the filter, which reduces the issue or to a complete stop mined through the hole.

The task of the invention is to provide a method of placer developments, allowing fully develop productive placer deposits and continuously produce fossil.

The problem is solved using the proposed method, including the sinking of vertical wells, drilling wells in the area productive placer deposits, of which hydro produce erosion productive placer deposits and send the resulting pulp in the direction vertical wells, in addition, vertical wells are drilling with the possibility of the entrance to the underground mine workings, built below the productive placer deposits in the area of sustainable rocks, and in the area of productive placer deposits drilling of wells of the above workings and perform them obliquely rising, with vertical and n is stronger rising well equipped through the filter and filter columns, moreover, in the filter columns inclined rising wells installed hydro, clean the filter parts inside through the filter column vertical wells and the regulation of the passage through it of the pulp productive placer deposits produced by the axial movement and rotation of the screw or helical hollow columns, while the entire length of the filter part of the filter through the column serves washing fluid flowing through the dot perforations in the auger or screw-shaped hollow column.

Distinctive features of the method is that:

vertical wells are drilling with the possibility of the entrance to the underground mine workings, built below the productive placer deposits in the area of sustainable rocks, and in the area of productive placer deposits drilling of wells of the above workings and perform them obliquely rising, with vertical and inclined rising well equipped through the filter and filter columns, which allows the most complete work in this field;

- cleaning filter parts inside through the filter column vertical wells and the regulation of the passage through it of the pulp productive placer deposits produced by the axial movement and rotation of the screw or helical hollow to the pubic, what prevents the clogging of the filter part;

- the entire length of the filter part of the filter through the column serves washing fluid flowing through the dot perforations in the auger or screw-shaped hollow column that prevents the sticking of placer material.

The combination of all these features allows you to maximally develop productive alluvial deposition and continuously produce fossil.

The method is represented by a drawing, which shows

the scheme of development of placer deposits.

Method development of placer mining involves drilling vertical wells 1 installing it through the filter of the column 2 with the filter part 3 with wide aisled holes. End-to-end filter column 2 is in underground mining 4, built below the productive placer deposits 5 in the area of sustainable rocks 6. From underground mines produce 4 drilling obliquely rising wells 7 in the area productive placer deposits 5. The number of inclined rising wells 7, their location near vertical wells 1, and the angles are determined by the specific geological and hydrogeological features of this particular field, i.e. the choice may be determined by the density of scattering, it is obvodnennost, the depth of the deposits and zones of resistant rocks, etc. Obliquely rising well 7 will be equipped with filter columns 8. Inside through the filter column 2 in the filter part 3 place a screw or screw-shaped hollow casing 9, having a point of perforation 10. The column 9 is supplied washing liquid, through which point the perforation 10 hits on the filter part 3.

During operation of the vertical well 1 wide aisled holes filter part 3 through the filter columns 2 collaterals, i.e. overgrown or get stuck solid particle species. In addition, in the process of passing through the wide aisled holes pulp inside filter part 3 may be formed of cork or is sticking placer material. To avoid this screw or helical hollow column 9 is moved in the axial direction and rotate with the simultaneous flow of washing fluid through the dot perforations 10. A hollow column 9 can post and make it move and rotate inside through the filter column 2 as above (shown in figure 1)and the bottom of the column 2. During the development of the placer Deposit to activate mined in an inclined rising well 7 inside the filter column 8 establish hydro 11 or the one device. By jetting 11 produce erosion productive placer deposits 5 and send the resulting pulp in the direction of the vertical well 1 (figure 1 this is shown by the arrows).

From vertical wells 1 through the filter columns 2 and an inclined rising wells 7 with filter columns 8 facing the pulp placer Deposit is collected in sumpah 12 and polyporaceae 13 to the pipeline 14 is thrown to the surface.

The proposed method can be used when developing the deep alluvial deposits, as well as in the development of oil fields under water, in coastal regions, in complex hydrogeological, cryogenic and climatic conditions and allows to develop productive alluvial deposition, thereby to increase the production of minerals.
