Article
Full-text available
The fast development of technologies for the collection, processing and interpretation of information, as well as significant complication of mining natural-technical systems, leads to the emergence of a need to revise the principles of monitoring mining facilities. The operation of modern sloping structures in mining enterprises is associated with...
Article
This study investigates the development and testing of an approximation method for the Mine Surveyor to calculate meridian convergence . This study, a detailed review of experimental techniques, follows a statistical experimental approach to establish how accurate an alternative method performs against traditional methods of meridian convergence ca...

The Chamber of Mines of South Africa (CoMSA) Certificates of Competency (CoCs) were introduced to standardize stand-alone in-house qualifications for persons working in the South African Mining and Minerals Industries (SAM). When the Higher Education Qualification Framework (HEQF) Act was introduced in 2007, one of the unintended consequences was t...
Conference Paper

The mine planning function plays an important role in the field of mining engineering as it creates the business plan to which the mining engineers and other mining related disciplines must follow. In simplistic terms the mine planner schedules the movement of waste and ore over a determined period. Depending upon the design criteria the mine plan...

The first formalised training for Mining Engineers and Mine Surveyors offered in South Africa was introduced in 1895 at the Kimberley school of Mines. This means that the education of Mining engineers and Mine Surveyors in South Africa has continued uninterrupted for 120 years. History indicates that the University of Witwatersrand, University of P...

The accuracy of all underground surveying is regulated by the standards described in the South African Mine Health and Safety Act. Four categories of accuracy is described. This pa-per describes the evaluation of accuracy standards of a typically configured sidewall station survey network in a narrow mine tunnel environment. The sidewall system len...
Conference Paper

The formal discipline of requirements specification development (RSD) engineering is very often ignored at the outset of a project. Typically the requirement is an interpretation of the need by a researcher that puts together a funding proposal, and when the funding is awarded, the project content and deliverables fixed by the oft ill conceived pro...
