The article focuses on efficient analysis and test methods to determine nano- and micro-mechanical properties of rocks and crystals. A modification of the classical elastic problems of contact mechanics implemented using the mathematical apparatus of fractional integro-differentiation is proposed. The authors build new models and algorithms aimed to advance the studies into properties and states of geomaterials based on the atomic-force microscopy techniques, and describe testing of the new approaches in calculation of the elastic modulus for hydrocarbons with nano-additives.

The analytical review covers the key factors that influence permeability of a coalbed under mining-induced alteration of stress state. The authors put forward an analytical relation between coal permeability, stresses and adsorbed gas to define parameters of gas leakage zone parameters and laws of mass transfer. The analytically derived relation is compared with the known model of coal structure and with the experimental results. The proposed model of coalbed permeability allows mechanism of leakage and localization of seepage zones in coal provided that the model parameters are properly selected or found experimentally.

The article offers in situ test methods for cohesion and internal friction angle in rocks and at joints. Technologies and instrumentation for shearing of rock wedges in an open pit mine and for laser scanning and digital imaging of local falls and breaks of inaccessible rock blocks in pitwalls have been developed and approved for constructing a limit equilibrium equation and for calculation of strength properties of rocks and joints. Rock wedges for the tests are prepared using various design drill rigs, the rock wedges are sheared using a 40-t jack placed in a special metal housing with an electric hydraulic pump. Exploration of inaccessible local falls in pitwalls uses electronic tachometers and 3D mine scanner. The tests and approval of the described exploration techniques have been carried out in open pits in Kazakhstan and Kirgizia.

The scope of the article encompasses features of natural and induced seismicity and the change in frequency plots when natural seismicity turns into natural-and-induced seismicity in mining areas and when induced seismicity becomes natural-and-induced seismicity in mines. It is shown how induced seismicity is connected with the subsidence of overlying strata in minesseismic process propagates together with the subsidence but seismic activity lowers in the time of maximum subsidence and intensifies when subsidence ceases or decelerates. The authors lay emphasis on estimates of seismic activity in mines and give details of an integrated index F procedure tested in mines and adjusted within the 10 year-long period of application.

The solution to a hydraulic fracture problem for the model of KhristianovichGeertsmade Klerk is obtained on the basis of the modified formulation of the problem, which, in contrast with the conventional approach, employs the particle velocity rather than the flux. This served to complement the system of ordinary differential equations, resulting after spatial discretization, with the speed equation. The complete system is solved by the RungeKutta method for arbitrary initial conditions. The decaying influence of the initial conditions on key characteristics of a fracture (opening and length) at the end of a treatment, is established and numerically analyzed.

Based on the strength and crack resistance tests of dolerite and gabbrodiorite samples subjected to bending as a function of loading rate, it is shown that the kinetic constants of strength in Zhurkov model have the same values in the localized and non-localized failure modes. The tests on destruction of an organic glass sample with an edge crack yield the similar results.

The article gives the results of simulated propagation of electromagnetic signals in stratified and damaged dielectric solid model structures exposed to pulsed acoustic treatment. It is shown that the acousto-electric transformations in such structures result in transition of energy of acoustic pulses to energy of electromagnetic responses in double electric layers. The amplitudefrequency parameters of electromagnetic signals are connected with the characteristics of the determinate acoustic effects and with the charge state of the stratified and damaged structures.

This article presents the results of experimental studies on a coal mine. According to the results, the current of single phase-to-earth fault in the network under 1000 V has a value less than the current of the residual current device set point. This article presents a method aimed to improving the efficiency of the residual current device used on excavators and drill-rings at mining enterprises. Indeed, the method developed to improve the efficiency of residual current devices under 1000 V is based on setting up a direct current into three-phase mains with a fixed set-point of protection against any phase-to-ground insulation damage, where electric equipment is switched off due to increases of capacitance between a conductor and earth when live-line bare-hand touching of electric equipment occurs.

From the analysis of information on flotation of quartz, barite, hematite and diamond spar using cationic reagents (amines), the authors show deficiency of thermodynamic approach to explain flotation results by one type of adsorption due to ionelectrostatic mechanism. The discussion offers hypothesis that says that at low pH collecting ability of a reagent is connected with hydrophobic attachment of the reagent ions in adsorption layer. In alkaline range of pH, the collecting ability is conditioned by formation and precipitation of ionomolecular associates in the adsorption layer of a mineral. These types of adsorption attach particle surface which is preliminarily made hydrophobic by ionelectrostatic mechanism. These adsorption types are active at bubbleliquid interface and can go to this interface upon rupture of water film between a particle and a bubble. According to the suggested hypothesis, liquid tension in the film becomes nonuniform and a surface force arises and expels kinematic constraint for particlebubble attachment. The analytical review of the collected test data on cationic reagents proves the suggested hypothesis. The causes of breakdown of correlation between surface pressure and collecting ability for initial conditions of flotation are explained.

Air bubble and pyrite grain attachment is studied. It is found that mineralization area on an air bubble depends on pulp agitation time, potassium butyl xanthate concentration and pyrite grain size. The authors show the relation between mineralization area of air bubble and weight of mineral load. Using experimental data, it is calculated how many pyrite grains from a narrow size range attach to an air bubble during pulp agitation time, and the weight of these grains is estimated. Physical forces on mineral loading exerted by pyrite grains of 0.1 + 0.071, 0.071 + 0.044 and 0.044 + 0 mm in size at an air bubble at different pulp agitation times, as well as the absolute and specific retention forces are calculated, as well.

The article gives analytical and experimental data on separation of sulfide minerals in bulk concentrates of complex ores. The separation methods for minerals having similar process properties are selected. It is found which factors influence mineral separation efficiency in concentrates of rebellious and complex ore processing. The authors present fresh data on activating effect exerted by cations of copper on floatability of sphalerite, galena, pyrite and pyrrhotine species, as well as on activating effect of copper minerals. It has been studied how species of pyrite and nonferrous metal sulfides influence oxidation, floatability and depression. The selected methods to separate complex ore concentrates provide for multi-stage flotation circuit, with recovery of rebellious species into rough concentrates and products and their separation in different cycles later on. A system mode has been developed and recommended for dosing selective collectors, depressors and modifiers to achieve the best flotation performance.

The author performs the comparative analysis of the international standards on determination of elastic properties of rocks from uniaxial compression tests, with benefits and shortcomings of the standards presented. The measurement data on lateral and transverse strains obtained in rocks and model metal samples under compression using different type extensometers are reported. The scope of the analysis embraces applicability of extensometers to the determination of elasticity modulus and Poissons ratio in rocks under variation in temperature. Examples of estimating elastic properties in thawed and frozen rocks are given in terms of enclosing rocks at Botuobinskaya diamond pipe.
