Module content
Lectures (30h):

Raw minerals in ecosystem, classification according to industrial demand.
Rock and rock-mass properties influencing selection of underground technology.
Geological and geometrical parameters of mineral deposits and their role for technology.
Geological reserves, classification, cut-off grade.
Cutting, excavating, winning and drilling techniques utilized underground.
Types and use of underground excavations, roof support, lining and einforcement methods.
Models of underground mines, infrastructure.
Back filling technologies.
Natural threats and prophylactics, environmental impact.
Underground space for civil utilization.

Project classes (15h):

An example of development of the regular orebody. Determination of the main technological parameters of the deposit exploitation (eg. resources, daily output and progress, the number of the indicative roof, surface deformation indexes) and choice of the equipment in longwall panel caving in particular shearer loader, armoured face conveyor and powered roof support.

Additional information
Teaching methods and techniques:
  • Lectures: Treści prezentowane na wykładzie są przekazywane w formie prezentacji multimedialnej w połączeniu z klasycznym wykładem tablicowym wzbogaconymi o pokazy odnoszące się do prezentowanych zagadnień.
  • Project classes: Studenci wykonują zadany projekt samodzielnie, bez większej ingerencji prowadzącego. Ma to wykształcić poczucie odpowiedzialności za pracę w grupie oraz odpowiedzialności za podejmowane decyzje.
Warunki i sposób zaliczenia poszczególnych form zajęć, w tym zasady zaliczeń poprawkowych, a także warunki dopuszczenia do egzaminu:

Examination after positive pass of the project.

Participation rules in classes:
  • Lectures:
    – Attendance is mandatory: No
    – Participation rules in classes: Studenci uczestniczą w zajęciach poznając kolejne treści nauczania zgodnie z syllabusem przedmiotu. Studenci winni na bieżąco zadawać pytania i wyjaśniać wątpliwości. Rejestracja audiowizualna wykładu wymaga zgody prowadzącego.
  • Project classes:
    – Attendance is mandatory: Yes
    – Participation rules in classes: Studenci wykonują prace praktyczne mające na celu uzyskanie kompetencji zakładanych przez syllabus. Ocenie podlega sposób wykonania projektu oraz efekt końcowy.
Method of calculating the final grade:

The final grade is a weighted average rating of the exam (weight 0.6) and classes (weight 0.4).

Sposób i tryb wyrównywania zaległości powstałych wskutek nieobecności studenta na zajęciach:

Late project or individual consulting.

Prerequisites and additional requirements:

Fundamentals of geology
