For the article on backfill see Backfill. Mining with backfill is a requirement in the industry as High density backfill for underground mines. book is an important aspect of many mining methods and is a solution to many rock stability issues.

When a mine plans to use backfill there are a number of considerations to be made with regards to type of fill, delivery. There are environmental issues with mining, namely with disturbance of groundwater flow and settlement (of the land above and adjacent the mine excavations).

Backfilling prevents and minimizes settlement and minimizes the impact on the hydrology i. Hydraulic backfill is one of the refilling technologies that use water as the transportation medium. to convey the hydraulic backfill materials, such as waste tailings, water hydrophilic slag.

Paste backfill is a high density backfill (>70% solids depending on SG). In order to pump material at this density, a component of fines is required. As a general rule, the fines content. Uses waste rock from the underground workings High density backfill for underground mines. book the mine which cuts down on the size of the waste rock stockpile on the surface.

• Fills the stope quicker. • Relatively low risk of a bulkhead failure due to the lack of pressure caused by the water in the fill if. Backfill of Tailings to Underground Workings.

The tailings are generally mixed with a binder, usually cement, and then pumped underground to fill voids and help support an underground mine.

backfill can be left in the distribution piping for periods of up to 5 days without flushing. This approach was followed for the Preussag system at Bad Grund Mine where the cement was conveyed to the stopes via a pneumatic pipeline system (Lerche and Renetzeder).

STATE-OF-THE-ART TECHNIQUES FOR BACKFILLING ABANDONED MINE VOIDS By Jeffrey S. Walker1 ABSTRACT Abandoned underground mine openings are susceptible to collapse because of the mining methods used, the character of the overburden, and the typicallylarge, wide entries with minimal roof Size: 1MB.

Underground mine backfilling is a form of ground improvement that has to be carried out in the mine sites. The backfilling provides ground support and regional stability, thus facilitating ore removal from nearby regions. The large underground voids created by the ore removal are backfilled with the waste tailings in the form of paste fills, hydraulic fills, and by: Underground Mining Methods presents the latest principles and techniques in use today.

Reflecting the international and diverse nature of the industry, a series of mining case studies is presented covering the commodity range from iron ore to diamonds extracted by operations located in all corners of the world.

Industry experts have contributed 77 chapters/5(5). The Department of Mining Engineering at Queen's University conducted a survey of backfill practices and a survey of the economics of backfilling in underground mines across Canada.

The survey of backfill practices was aimed at assessing the current state of backfill usage and the knowledge base in backfill design, from preparation through.

The high rock stresses which result from deep mining operations can be relieved by backfilling. Initially, waste rock was used to fill the openings left by mining operations, though with mixed results. The need to improve safety and reduce costs has prompted the mining industry to investigate alternative backfill Cited by: Cemented paste backfill (CPB) or cemented tailings backfill (CTB) has gained increasing popularity for the safe refilling of underground mine openings in Canada, Australia, China, Turkey, South Africa, and the United States [8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15].Having a relatively low strength and requiring reduced amounts of complex materials, CTB is usually prepared by dewatering slurries of processing Cited by: with mine backfill to achieve % ore extraction.

The stoping sequence involves mining to the side of and under very large backfill masses, requiring high volumes of high strength fill. As with many mines, backfill reliability and quality is critical to the success of the Malu underground mine.

In Outotec was requested to help optimise. Currently use of high density backfill is not a routine operation for underground coal mines in the U.S.

but has been used quite regularly in longwall coal mines in Germany and Poland for several decades. Further, this paper considers backfill disposal in underground coal mines located primarily in the Illinois Basin of the United by: Mining is carried out using long-hole stoping with mine backfill to achieve % ore extraction.

The stoping sequence involves mining to the side of and under very large backfill masses, requiring high volumes of high strength fill. As with many mines, backfill reliability and quality is critical to the success of the Malu underground mine. The mine initiated a research project, funded in part by the EU LIFE Environment Programme, to demonstrate the viability of disposing of the clay waste underground in mined out areas as a high density backfill.

Full tailings paste backfill is being used in hard rock mines, is proving to be a viable and economic alternative to other backfill methods. Paste backfill has the following advantages over an hydraulic backfill: Paste is an environmental friendlier backfill - it exudes virtually no water on placing and as a result requires less water management.

When an underground pipe or structure is abandoned, the two basic options that are considered are (1) pipe abandonment, or (2) removal. The removal option is often not feasible or cost-effective. A structure or pipeline that is abandoned in place without filling may deteriorate and lead to ground subsidence which in turn creates the potential.

The focus of this work has been to investigate the status of backfill technology, in particular paste backfill, a relatively new technology.

A rationale specifically for paste backfill system design has been developed. To date, a limited number of mines have implemented paste backfill systems. An extensive survey of backfill literature and a review of paste backfill operations in practice was Cited by: 1.
