base metal and iron ore mining ifclution concerns in the mining industry. removal of overburden to access the ore can pose major problems in storage and reclamation. the overburden (wastetoore) ratio for surface mining of metal ores generally ranges from 21 to 81, depending on local conditions. the ratio for solid wastes from underground mining is typically 0.21.guidance for carrying out risk assessment at surface guidance for carrying out risk assessment at surface mining operations this publication sets out basic advice for carrying out a risk assessment at surface mining operations. 2002 risk assessment for belt conveyorrelated fatal risk assessment for belt conveyorrelated fatal incidents in the u.s. mining industry v. kecojevic, z.a. mdnor, d. komljenovic, and w. groves* the paper presents the results of a research work aimed at developing a risk assessment process that can be used to more thoroughly characterize risks associated with belt conveyorrelated fatal incidents in the u.s. mining industry.mining and environmental impact slideshare201412220outline 1. types of mining (and why we use them) 2. beneficiation 3. smelting 4. environmental concerns of 1 through 3 3. what determines the type of mining? underground v.s. surface mining v.s. solution depth of below surface size of the ore body shape of the ore body grade type of ore 4.subsidence from underground mining environmental 201010300sidence risk, we must be able to accurately predict the surface and underground impacts of subsi173; dence and, if necessary, to suggest means to les173; sen these impacts. it is clear from poorly con173; trolled mining operations of the past that we no longer have the luxury of mining without regard to present and future land use.risk assessment workbook for mines dre redirect20151150why do risk assessments? risk assessments will help mine operators to identify high, medium and low risk levels. this is a requirement of the . occupational health and safety act 2000 (refer sections 7 amp; 8). risk assessments will help to prioritise the risks and provide information on the need to safely control the risks.

hazard identification and risk analysis in 20115160more commonly used techniques for risk assessment include failure modes and effects analysis (fmea), hazard and operability studies (hazop), faulttree analysis (fta), eventtree analysis (eta) etc. 1.1 need for risk assessment risk assessments will help the mine operators to identify high, medium and low risk levels.risk assessment for haul truckrelated fatalities in mining8120several countries have started to develop riskassessment approaches for mining. a united kingdom guidance document describes procedures for carrying out risk assessment at surface mining operations (doc. no. 5995/2/98en, 1999). the minerals council of australia was the initiator of a project seeking to improve risk assessment in the australian minerals industry. the university of queensland minerals industry safety and health centre (mishc) produced a guideline that aims to provide advice on risk assessment within the australian mining industry (joy and grifﬁ ths, 2004). the minerals industry cooperation initiative (mici) project at the university of queensland, australia, launched a new web site called mirmgate to improve the way mining, minerals processing and quarrying industries access hazard related information using internet technology (..mirmgate/; kizil and joy, 2005). in south africa, the mining defense related uranium mines energy2014930assessment of risk to human health and the environment due to data availability, risk assessments were conducted for an quot;average mine for each of five minesize categories based on the amount of ore produced, to evaluate the potential radiological risk associated with the mines.upper animas mining district region 8 us epaepa released a draft baseline ecological risk assessment (bera) for the portion of the site that includes upper cement creek in april 2015. epa presented the document and related findings to the community and to the animas river stakeher group (arsg) guidance for carrying out risk assessment at surface 1250this publication sets out basic advice for carrying out risk assessment at surface mining operations. surface mining operations are defined as activities the prevention and control of fire and explosion in mines12505. while fire and explosion risk assessments have to be carried out both below ground and on the surface, this guidance relates primarily to fire and explosion risks below ground. however, the general principles should be applied to those buildings and equipment on the surface of a mine where a fire or explosion could prejudice safety below ground.
