Method of blasting of rock mass

FIELD: mining.

SUBSTANCE: method of blasting of rock mass includes preliminary zoning of rocks by fracturing, mosaic structure and blastability thus determining elementary uniform sections and subsequent updating of zoning during mine works. Elementary uniform zones are formed by size and output of slurry in near-wellbore corresponding by height to three zones - location of stemming, location of charge above and below bench bottom. According to characteristics of elementary zones parameters of drilling and blasting operations are determined, at that characteristics of slurry of elementary zones of charge level are used to determine parameters of drilling and blasting operations, and characteristics of slurry of elementary zones of stemming level are used to update parameters of drilling and blasting operations.

The invention relates to the mining industry and can be used in open development rock.

The known method, including stage-detailed zoning of rocks blocking, fracture, toughness, and consumer quality and subsequent separation of the array of the working area at different height horizons and horizons or their parts - on operational units, the last - homogeneous elementary blocks, working from the top down method "disassembly" on blocking with the initial destruction of the largest technologically and technically oversized separateness of rocks in the array ledge - subsequent excavation of the array dimensions and fine fractions using an appropriate set of working bodies of technical devices universal unit, which allows the direct notch overall separateness of rocks from array to drill and blast large individual rocks by a small explosive charge and a very small diameter-8-84 mm under a local shelter or to carry out their mechanical destruction or loosening and subsequent excavation and loading of the rock mass in the means of transport or the inner blade or a temporary bottom warehouse (RF patent 2279546, Sekisov GV, Mamaev Y.A., Levin, A.R., Danilchenko became popular Method is asrabadi deposits of rock and half-rock types raznoobraznoi patterns). This solution may be effective in the development of half-rock rocks or rocks, are subject to intense weathering, with the inclusion of modular separateness. And is not effective in large open pits with great intensity advancement of the excavation front.

There is a method of blasting rock, including preliminary zoning career fields tremenously and explosive with the definition of the capacity of the wells, establishing in the process of drilling location tradearabia areas, delineation of them, the drilling of additional wells and short-delay blasting array with a slower firing additional wells on the main, characterized in that, with the aim of improving the quality of fragmentation and reduce the cost of blasting tradearabia plots framing in wells with high block with respect to the output of the sludge to the content of the most typical classes rig stuff, and the volume of drilling additional wells is determined based on the changes to the capacity of the wells drilled in tradearabia plots of the expression (1)

This solution is simple to implement and allows you to practice directly in the process of conducting drilling and blasting to identify tradearabia areas on the unit for the drilling of additional wells. The solution is designed to have a qualified contractor has a significant subjective component, complicating the use of this solution in automated systems. In addition, the used criterion is cumulative, i.e. simultaneously characterizes not only the fracture, but also the characteristics of the cracks that does not matter when diagnosing areas where explosive fragmentation (due to the presence of open cracks) is not controllable, but, nevertheless, it is not possible to extend this technique everywhere on all types of rocks.

There is a method of blasting rock using the method for diagnosing the state of rock masses (Akulov CENTURIES Perfecting the design blasting for quarry at the base of developing models of the zoning arrays forges the rocks // Mining information and analytical Bulletin. - 2010. No. 7. - P.28-31.). Within a particular type of rocks in the diagnosis of the array is determined by its fracture and the condition of the cracks. The proposed method uses a special index - ratio-capacity wells. The ratio of the capacity of the wells is the ratio of the measured capacity of the well to the capacity of the bore through solid rock. I.e. this ratio shows how many times in this array is the capacity of the wells more than in the solid rock. The value of this index varies from 1 to 1.5, and more. Determination of the coefficient of capacity wells occurs automatically during charging wells, so this method without subjective component and can be used in automated systems. However, as described above technical solution, based on the use of aggregate criterion, i.e. simultaneously characterizes not only the fracture, but also the characteristics of the cracks that does not matter when diagnosing areas where explosive fragmentation (due to the presence of open cracks) is not controllable, but, nevertheless, it is not possible to extend this technique everywhere on all types of rocks.

The objective of the invention is to improve the efficiency, zoning rocks along the limit by dividing the elementary who's homogeneous zones.

The task is solved in that the elementary homogeneous zones form according to the size and output of the sludge in the near-well space corresponding to the height of three areas - the location of the tamping, the location of the charge above and below the foot of the escarpment. Through the characteristics of elementary zones set parameters for drilling and blasting, and through the characteristics of the sludge elementary zones of the charge level set parameters for drilling and blasting, and in a characteristic sludge elementary zones level tamping precise drilling and blasting parameters.

Examples of specific performance

Rocks rocks are highly variable in structure and mechanical properties, therefore, the flow rate of drilling and explosives for blasting 1 m3the breed can vary within wide limits. Design of blasting is carried out on the basis of zoning deposits by category of explosive. These zoning confirmed by experienced explosions. When large variability arrays the zoning process is expensive, and these zoning unreliable due to problems of interpolation results experienced explosions in the depth of field. Working on zoning fields carried out in cycles with a periodicity of 1.5-2 years.

Additional difficulties for the zoning causes fracturing of rocks, which often has a decisive impact on the results of ore crushing. As noted at various times by many researchers (Dev, Arachnoid, Liebana, Sagamigawa, VScrollBar, Vnesin.com and others) structural rock properties largely determine the degree of fragmentation of the rock mass in the explosion. Important not only blocking rocks, but also the characteristics of the cracks and the x-filling. In complex-structured arrays of randomly changing the structure of the rocks, and the presence of open cracks (or fractures filled with loose material), significantly reduces the degree of fragmentation of the rock explosion.

When the rotating drum wells rock failure occurs not only in the project outline, but also beyond them. This particularly applies to complex-structured arrays, when attempting to improve the quality of crushing due to the increased drilling and EXPLOSIVES increases the explosive impact on the array outside of the project outlines the conditions (below the foot of the escarpment slopes of the escarpment). Outside project footprints blasting observed the destruction of the rock mass and intensive artificial fracturing. This applies to slope shoulders and the soles of the ledge. When hit wells in the area of artificial disturbances of the array is observed collapse wellheads, decreasing the amount of perebor, the deterioration of rock crushing and study the soles of the ledge. Thus, in (Zhaboev M.N., Akulov VA, Bakharev L.V., Ravikovich Bessovestnaya technologies blasting complex-structured arrays of rocks. Gorn. - 1990. No. 9. - S-23) highlighted the following main reasons for loss of production wells in the areas of artificial disturbance of the rock mass:

- Loss of drilling wells of the first row.

- About Uchenie wellheads in the drilling of the upper part of the wells in a broken previous explosions rock mass (see figure 1).

When designing mass explosions cyclical technology division of the rock does not provide the necessary accuracy of data output on the explosive rocks, which degrades the technical-economic indicators of production. Therefore, the creation of the system design mass explosions with elements of self-development is a very important task. Automated system design mass explosions must solve two problems:

1. Based on the existing zoning and the data model project (efficient drilling and blasting parameters on types of rocks) the current design of the explosive block.

2. Clarification of the existing zoning and the data model project (efficient drilling and blasting parameters on types of rocks), on the basis of the analysis of the results of an industrial explosion.

Information must always act in the automated system. The source of such information can only be industrial explosions. But the current structure of the information obtained in the production of industrial explosion, has elements that are largely dependent on subjective factors and have low reliability.

The greatest dependence on the subjective factor is the registration of fracture and characteristics of the cracks, which are not directly determined, so instead of fracturing and the characteristic is cteristic cracks are encouraged to register granulometric composition of the drill cuttings and its output. To measure the characteristics of the sludge can be used as is known, used concentrators particle sixers, and specially designed device.

For the analysis capabilities of artificial fracturing in the array in the near-well space form of elementary homogeneous zone, broken down according to the height of three layers:

1) corresponding to the position of the tamping;

2) corresponding to the position of the charge above the base of the ledge;

3) corresponding to the position of the charge below the foot of the ledge.

In the process of drilling wells pointervalue for each layer to produce the register size and output of the sludge.

Layer corresponding to the position of the tamping, characterizes the state of a rock mass after exposure to the lower part of the borehole charges overlying previously spent block.

The impact energy of the blast on the rocks below the soles of the bench depends on the location of the charge. Often the center of gravity location of the charge height unreasonably underestimated. This can happen for several reasons, main of which are:

- Is not taken into account the real capacity of wells in fractured rocks, when by drilling bore holes is longer than monolithic or modular breed is. This can increase the capacity of well over 20%.

In the rocks where the fragmentation effect of structural properties is not managed, often attempts to improve the quality of crushing due to the increased drilling and EXPLOSIVES.

When the center of gravity of the charge in the lower part of the borehole is increased, the impact energy of the charge on the array below the foot of the escarpment. To quantify this factor is a comparative analysis of the characteristics of the sludge obtained during the drilling area perebor (on the overlying horizon) with the characteristics of the sludge obtained during the drilling of the upper part of the wells (tamping) the current horizon. Figure 1 presents the profile of wells drilled in arrays of different patterns:

1 - in monolithic arrays of rocks;

2 - in a broken previous explosion of rock masses;

3 - marking soles of the ledge;

4 - the collapsed portion of the borehole;

5 - position the bottom of the wells of the overlying horizon;

6 - area of artificial fracturing around the well in peribere.

Figure 2 presents the dependence of the interval changes with depth of sludge volumes in wells overlying (7) and the current (8) horizons. Analysis of the output of the sludge in the overlap zone dependency overlying and current horizons (9) until the displays, the output of the slurry under the influence of the artificial fracture decreased from 60 to 10%.

Figure 3 presents the dependence of the interval changes with depth particle size of the sludge by wells overlying (9) and current (10) horizons. Analysis of the particle size of the slurry in the zone of overlap dependencies overlying and current horizons (11) shows that the particle size of the slurry under the influence of the artificial fracture increased from 2 to 12 mm

Layer corresponding to the position of the charge characterizes the natural state of a rock mass.

As the source system uses the data of industrial explosions. In the process of drilling production wells cone drilling are defined:

1. The description of rocks on the current block.

2. Forecast characteristics of the rocks in the lower horizon.

3. Evaluation of the accuracy of the prediction of the current block is issued when developing the overlying horizon.

The first layer is the upper area corresponding to the height position of the tamping, is of interest for the analysis parameters and results of the previous explosion on the overlying horizon. Area exposed to artificial fractures caused by the impact of the charge on the outside of the design contour blasting. A comparative analysis of the characteristics of the sludge in the upper and middle part of the borehole with respect to the location at which lennosti borehole charge on the overlying or adjacent block and loss of wells (from the collapse of the mouth) of the analyzed wells allows to judge about the deviations from the rational parameters of drilling and blasting at the breaking of the overlying or adjacent block.

Minimum destruction of the foot of the scarp suggests that the main impact of the energy well of the charge was directed toward the naked space (i.e. correctly were selected amount of charge, tamping, perebor, interval deceleration).

The second highest layer corresponds to the position of the charge above the base of the ledge and characterizes natural fracturing of the rock mass in the well vicinity. The parameter is the particle size of the sludge characterizes the fracturing of the rock mass, exit sludge characterized by the presence of open cracks. Increasing the yield of the slurry with drilling depth suggests that passed the area of artificial fractures with open cracks arising from the impact of the charge wells of the overlying block on the bottom of the escarpment (see Fig..2). The particle size of the cuttings with the drilling depth is reduced, this suggests that the strength properties of the array increases as you progress through the zone of artificial fractures (see figure 3).

The third layer zone, characterizing the rock mass at the level of perebor. Characteristics of the slurry, the particle size and output allow you to allocate (divide) the quantitative values of natural and artificial fractures in the comparative analysis of the results of the drilling of the underlying horizon.

Thus the m to assess the impact of explosive effect outside project footprints blasting the rocks studied twice:

1. When drilling the overlying horizon explores the characteristics of the sludge zone at the level of perebor.

2. With decreasing mining and drilling zone (which was previously described characteristics of the sludge level perebor) investigated the characteristics of the sludge level tamping.

An important task to ensure the accuracy of zoning is to create conditions for compliance with the design parameters of drilling and blasting operations and ensuring the accuracy of information input into the database. With this purpose, the drilling tools are used for high-precision positioning to position them in accordance with the project of drilling. The drilling rig is equipped with a device for determining the size and output of the sludge (e.g granulometry or miniature videocamera in a protective cover with safety device optics from cuttings and dust) by means of high-precision positioning control device to control the drilling, collecting data about the characteristics of the sludge and synchronize the operation of the above devices. Programmable microprocessor device connected to a personal computer (tablet PC)installed in the cab of the drilling machine and connect Wi max network server.

P is edlagaemoe technical solution allows on a regular basis using modern computer technology, positioning equipment, communication tools to adjust zoning rocks by categories of fracture, limit, and Refine the parameters of drilling and blasting operations. You can also use different methods of calculation of parameters of drilling and blasting. For example, the value of the usage ratio of the bore length for specific conditions can be calculated from the expression (2):

where H3- the height of the ledge, m; k2b, k3b, k6b0the coefficients of proportionality, for hornfels k2b=0.53, k3b=0.4, k6b0=2.5.

Monitoring the effectiveness of the localization of explosive effect strictly planned contours blasting is performed on the basis of the analysis of dependencies figure 2 and figure 3. Adjustment of parameters of drilling and blasting may be performed by using special indicators of the efficiency of perebor and coefficient of variation of capacity and loss of wells of the first row. The efficiency ratio perebor (CEP) is defined by the formula (3).

where Lp- the value of perebor, m; ∆ H is the deviation from the planned height of the ledge, m

Depth of perebor is calculated from the expression (4):

where k7b, k5b0the coefficients of proportionality, for hornfels k7b=1.45, k5b0=0.073.

The value of re is ur optimized for each category of breeds to:

1) to localize the application of explosive energy within the planned contour blasting;

2) to ensure the requirements of the subsequent processes of mining and beneficiation;

3) to minimize the impact of the explosion on protected objects.

If the explosive energy is applied outside of the project outline for planned values perebor and other drilling and blasting parameters, it says about changing the category of explosive rocks.

The distance between the wells is adjusted according to the formula (5).

wherea0,a1respectively the actual and the recommended grid wells, M.

When the deviation from the design elevation of the foot of the ledge calculation of the recommended consumption of EXPLOSIVES is conducted from the expression (6):

where p is the capacity of 1 L.M. wells, kg/m; Ki- utilization of the well.

Lskν- the length of the borehole, m; h - the height of the ledge, m

SUBSTANCE: method includes calculation of parameters of stress waves regarding the deflexion of detonation wave and energy dissipation. Rock stress is determined after detonation wave deflexion on the base of the laws of breakdown of an arbitrary discontinuity of data by the properties of explosive substances and impact adiabats of rock material.

FIELD: mining.

SUBSTANCE: method includes opening of mineral resources, advance boring of auxiliary wells of minor diameter and then of main wells concentric with them by core drill of large diameter, separation of cores from mass, their lifting to the surface and further shattering and disruption. Wells are drilled using thermal influence, for instance by thermo-friction method, and cooling of bits by cleaning agent; when temperature of face and well walls is 100°C and below, SAS solution is grouted into well; then when cores of large diameter are lifted in cold season they are influenced by natural cold below 0°C, further disruption is performed under positive temperature.

EFFECT: defrosting of permafrost kimberlites by heat of technical processes accompanying technical cycle of diamonds production, and freezing of kimberlite using natural cold.

FIELD: mining art, in particular, open-pit mining of mineral resources by high benches.

SUBSTANCE: large-diameter single holes are replaced by a pair of divergent holes of a smaller diameter, in which one hole is always vertical, and the other one is inclined towards the bench; the single holes of the larger diameter are replaced with a pair of divergent bundles of parallel converged holes, in which one bundle is vertical, and the other is inclined towards the bench; the single holes of the larger diameter are replaced with a pair of divergent holes of a smaller diameter, in which one hole is vertical, and the other is inclined towards the bench and positioned in the vertical plane parallel with the first one and distant from it by 1-2 hole diameters; the single holes of the larger diameter are replaced by a pair of divergent bundles of parallel converging holes, in which one bundle is vertical, and the other is inclined towards the bench and positioned in the vertical plane parallel with the first one and distant from it by 1-2 hole diameters.

EFFECT: enhanced efficiency of blasting of the benches.
