The non-Archimedean space is a multi-scale one. The paper shows that this face is applicable to developing mathematical models of rocks exhibiting a hierarchy of structural levels. A closed model, considering anisotropy and weakening of a rock mass, is constructed. The equations in terms of displacements and the resultant internal force vector are derived. The authors have obtained the numerical solution to the problem on deformation of a rock mass around extended galleries, and showed how the areas of weakening and residual strength evolve. The energy flow lines are plotted.

The paper studies the influence of a gypsum material composition on the characteristic of formation and extension of tensile fractures in the zones of tensile stress concentrations in gypsum samples under compression. The experimental results are compared with the data of on a limiting pressure calculated by the traditional and gradient failure criteria. The parameters of the gradient criterion for the studied materials are determined.

The author has simulated behavior of geomaterials based on the modified models of Drucker — Prager — Nikolaevski and Rudnicki. It is shown how fractures extend under stresses applied on a section of a specimen surface. The characteristic patterns are obtained for deformation localization in low porosity and high porosity sandstone under biaxial compression, and the stress-to-strain curves are plotted.

The paper expounds results gained in mathematical modeling of stress state of a rock mass under mining by sublevel caving with areal-frontal and frontal ore drawing schemes. Stability of underground excavations in the course of applying the compared methods is evaluated in terms of the Sheregesh deposit. The authors recommend on supporting the openings at the ore drawing-off level.

For marble underground excavation it is important to develop a collection of procedures, rules and models in order to collect information to build a database, making it usable and available to all users so that they can make decisions. The information must be based on technical and economic criteria, during the lifetime of the excavation and after the close down of the mining activities. The importance of geotechnical characterization in the economical evaluation of underground mining of dimension stone is so emphasized. A sensitivity analysis of the economic indicators with the variation of the geotechnical and ornamental parameters is performed. The results of an economic feasibility study of an underground exploitation of marble at Pardais, Vila Vi?osa, are presented.

Test data on the selective reagent modes at bulk flotation cycle and modified carboxymethylcellulose (CMC) at a selection cycle for the bulk copper-molybdenum concentrate. The selected reagent mode at a bulk flotation cycle with industrial kerosene and Beraflot as collectors and OPSB as a frother made it possible to recover 87 % of copper and 82 % of molybdenum into a rough bulk concentrate. Tests with CMC application at the selection cycle revealed a potential opportunity to reduce 1.5 — 2.0 times the summary sodium sulfide consumption, to cut down running costs of pulp and depressant heating, and to improve molybdenum recovery with no negative effect on other parameters of the bulk concentrate selection.

The paper describes the laboratory studies aimed at comprehensive analysis and establishment of the optimal parameters for preparation of a pulp for reverse cation flotation when producing a low-silica iron ore concentrate. The kinetics of the process is investigated with application of a collecting agent and depressing agents for iron minerals.
