Paper: Guidelines Standards and Best Practice for Seismic

Abstract: Seismic monitoring analysis and interpretation are key components of the hazard assessment and risk management system on rockburst-prone mines The Mine Health and Safety Council commissioned a task as part of the project "Minimising the rockburst risk" (SIM050302) to review current practice on South African mines and to formulate standards guidelines and

17-4-2020Among many mines in the Republic of South Africa gold mines are excavated to particularly great depths Mining causes stress concentration to rock mass The rupture results in mine earthquakes posing a serious risk For safe mining risk of mine earthquakes must be accurately assessed and mining must be planned to minimize the risk

Two of the main aspects of carrying out a risk assessment is to identify the hazards These are activities that are potentially dangerous Once an hazard has been identified the risk (or possibility) of an employee being harmed by the hazard is quantified This is usually recorded as low risk medium risk or high risk
