Experience of LLC Azot-Chernigovets: Use of DAVEYTRONIC Electronic
Blast Systems in Mining Facilities

The use of electronic blast systems by LLC Azot-Chernigovets during 2011-2013 in mine facilities of Kenerovo and Novossibirsk regions allowed to increase mine mass yield from a running meter up to 17%, reduce specific flow of explosives, reduce emissions of dust and gaseous explosion products, mitigate direct-transmitted shock effect of mass blastings being made, improve significantly the safety of blasting operations.

Efficient Technologies of Massive Strengthening for Longwall Set of Equipment
Passing Through Mine Workings

The article introduces the new prospective technique of longwall set of equipment passing through branches, improving significantly the coal production safety and efficiency. The approved idea consists in a traversable working of longwall strengthened zones made of the specific UGM-R mineral compound-based foamed concrete, which rehabilitates the massive bearing capacity, minimizes manual labour and probability of roof collapse in the area of support pressure effect. It describes the mine implementation experience, suggests alternative variants of technique combined with anchors.

Genesis and Development of Kuzbass Natural and Technogenic Seismic Activity

(The work is performed within the framework of the government contract No 14.515.11.0082 on order
of the Ministry for Education and Science of the Russian Federation)

The article shows that the Kuzbass seismicity, since 1960-s., has been having a complicated natural-technogenic character. Since the late 1980-s, the natural-technogenic activity has been passing into the second stage - swarms of seismic events and strong shallow earthquakes in regions of higher concentration of mining operations. The most dramatic event of such kind was a Richter magnitude 5,3-5,6 earthquake occurred on 19.06.2013 near the Bachatsky open pit.
