Subway Station Retaining Walls: Case Histories in Soft and Hard Soils
This paper revisits the geotechnical conditions in Buenos Aires City, describes the procedures employed for the design and numerical analysis of pile-supported excavations and presents the behaviour of five recent cases in widely different geotechnical profiles.
Mining the UK
The days of deep coal mining may be largely gone for the UK, but small-scale, varied mines are ensuring the industry’s survival. In this interactive map, we spotlight some of these sustaining projects, including lithium mining in Cornwall, tin mining in Devon and gold mining in the Highlands.
Mapping the future: Professor Hyam Rubinstein discusses the MineOptima project
The MineOptima project was developed by Professors Thomas and Rubinstein of the University of Melbourne to apply their work on network optimisation and microchip design to the planning and design of the most efficient mines. Julian Turner talks to Professor Rubinstein about their work.
Uncovering titanium in Greenland
BlueJay Mining’s Dundas project in Greenland is thought to hold the world’s highest-grade mineral sand ilmenite – the key ore in titanium. The venture was granted government approval in July and work is underway to prove its size. Heidi Vella speaks to BlueJay managing director, Roderick McIllree – formerly of Greenland Energy and Minerals – about Dundas and Greenland’s potential to be the 21st century’s new mining frontier.
Technology developed to track automated underground machines
Robotics researchers from Queensland University of Technology (QUT) in Australia have developed a technology to track automated mining vehicles operating underground.
Could snow, soil and trees point the way to the next big mining discovery in British Columbia?
Amid the high peaks, alpine tundra and glaciers of British Columbia, it’s hard to tell what lies beneath your feet, much more so than in less hostile areas. But, as Ross Davies finds out, a new set of analytical tools uses tell-tale signs in the landscape itself to narrow the search. Could this change mineral exploration forever?
Maptek Unveils New Strategic Panel Caving Application
