The authors analyze numerically propagation of hydraulic fractures from a circular hole boundary under viscous fluid injection in plane strain condition, considering influence of the fluid viscosity and elastic characteristics. The approximate solution is compared with the recent numerical calculations of exact formulated problem. Effect of configuration of incipient hydraulic fractures on development of the overall hydrofracturing pattern is analyzed, and stable growth conditions for several long fractures are found.

The article proposes mathematical model of heat exchange between open pitwall rocks and atmosphere for forecasting temperature field in permafrost strata, daily change in radiative balance, slope angle and surface orientation, and influence of contiguous benches. In terms of Udachny Open Pit Mine, time dependence of pitwall sloughing layer thickness is estimated under cyclic effect of freezingdefrostation in rocks having different freeze resistance.

The article considers statistical properties of surfaces of sylvite, spathic salt and carnallite grains in nanorange. The authors describe processed experimental data obtained on scanning microprobe Dimension ICON in nanorange for grains of the Upper Kama potassium and potashmagnesium rock salts. Fractal dimension determined by minimum cover method is used as a characteristic of the grain surface roughness. The authors find differences in statistic properties of one-dimension divergent cuts of the grain surfaces.

Meeting production targets in terms of ore quantity and quality is critical for a successful mining operation. In-situ grade variability and uncertainty about the spatial distribution of ore and quality parameter cause both deviations from production targets and general financial deficits. A stochastic integer programming formulation (SIP) is developed herein to integrate geological uncertainty described by sets of equally possible scenarios of the unknown orebody. The SIP formulation accounts not only for discounted cashflows and deviations from production targets, discounts geological risk, while accounting for practical mining. Application at an iron ore deposit in Western Australia shows the ability of the approach to control a risk of deviating from production targets over time. Comparison shows that the stochastically generated mine plan exhibits less risk in deviating from quality targets than the traditional mine planning approach based on a single interpolated orebody model.

Simultaneous extraction of ore reserves from open pitwall and the layer immediately adjacent to the open pit bottom results in higher volume of ore discharge in the limited bottom area, besides the bottom must be stable within the adjacent layer extraction interval. The authors select the pit bottom design with two-way alternate arrangement of loading entries, taking into account the use of power-driven loadhauldumpers. The ore output with the given pit bottom design is evaluated.

Based on the analysis of estimation criteria for chemical resistance of nonferrous and rare metal minerals, it is found possible to predict properly their reactivity prior to their mechanical activation reasoning from their energy density, bond uniformity and power characteristic of cations of oxygen compounds. The authors propose relationships for determination of structural changes in noble metal minerals under mechanical activation, which ensure mineral opening in further hydrometallurgical treatment at below100?C. These relationships are useful to pre-evaluate reactivity of minerals in order to select effective mechanical activation conditions.

The article presents basic magnetic characteristics of nine primary concentrates produced from Siberian magnetite ore and a lightly oxidized iron ore and supplied as a feedstock to Abagur enrichment agglomeration plant. The best magnetic properties belong to the primary concentrate produced from the magnetite ore mined at Abaza, Irba and Kaz deposits; the weakest properties characterize the lightly oxidized ore from Izykh-Gol and Krasnokamensk; the magnetic characteristics are proportional to magnetite content in a primary test specimen. Considering this, the integrated processing of lightly oxidized and magnetite ore is recommended to lower magnetite loss in tailings of Abagur plant.

In terms of Mnogovershinny gold and silver mine, the authors have made geological estimation of mining impact on natural environment using geoinformation technologies. The influence area of the mineral mining and processing has been zoned based on the complex air pollution index using earth remote sensing methods.
