Abstract

Ore and non-ore mineralization in cracks filled with hydrocarbons in the dark grey Upper-Devonian limestone has been found in the Józefka quarry of Upper Devonian limestone and dolomite near the Górno village near Kielce at Holy Cross Mts. Poland. Hydrocarbons in the liquid form and iron and copper sulphides appears hear in the fault zone as joints filling. The wall rocks are impregnated by hydrocarbons giving them black color. Hydrocarbon impregnations appears also following the bedding planes The coexistence of ore mineralization and hydrocarbon suggests their common origin and migration from deep-seated sources, that may be the Silurian Ordovician or Lower to Middle Devonian black shales. The metallic-hydrocarbon compounds were suggested as metals carrier.

Abstract

Analiza stanu zasobów i ich wykorzystania w przeszłości pozwala na poznanie czynników kształtujących jego zmiany, ułatwić może ich prognozowanie i ocenę stopnia zabezpieczenia przyszłego zapotrzebowania krajowego na surowce. Znaczenie gospodarcze współcześnie w Polsce jako źródło ołowiu i cynku mają złoża: rud Zn-Pb w obszarze śląsko-krakowskim oraz rud miedzi na monoklinie przedsudeckiej, w których ołów występuje jako metal towarzyszący. Górnictwo rud cynku i ołowiu ma na ziemiach polskich wielowiekową tradycję. Do początków XXI w. w złożach śląsko-krakowskich wydobyto około 25–27 mln ton Zn i 7,5–9 mln ton Pb. Zasoby złóż są systematycznie ewidencjonowane od 1952 r. Do lat osiemdziesiątych XX wieku notowany był ich przyrost. O d 1983 roku zaznacza się stały ich ubytek spowodowany wyczerpywaniem zasobów eksploatowanych złóż. Znaczne zmniejszenie wykazywanych zasobów nastąpiło w latach 1991–1993 r. po zmianie kryteriów bilansowości, oraz w latach 2005–2007 po wprowadzeniu do szacowania zasobów metody „okręgów” zamiast wieloboków. Zasoby przemysłowe, kwalifikowane do wydobycia, zmniejszają się systematycznie w wyniku ich eksploatacji i można przewidywać całkowite ich wyczerpanie do 2022 r. W złożach niezagospodarowanych pozostało jeszcze 3 mln cynku i 1,2 mln ton ołowiu i przewiduje się 4–5 mln ton Zn i około 1 mln ton Pb w zasobów prognostycznych. W udokumentowanych złożach rud miedzi wykazywane jest 1,3–1,7 mln t Pb oraz mln to zasobów szacunkowych. Zasoby złóż niezagospodarowanych wymagają lepszego niż dotychczas rozpoznania, a w przypadku zasobów perspektywicznych ich potwierdzenia. Koniec eksploatacji złóż zagospodarowanych powinien być podstawą dla sprecyzowania polityki państwa odnośnie do przyszłości pokrycia zapotrzebowania krajowego na surowce cynku i ołowiu oraz przyszłości wykorzystania krajowej bazy surowcowej.

Abstract

The analysis of changes in the mechanical properties of wooden mining cribs under the influence of different types of exploitation loads is the question for which deals with many domestic and abroad research centers deal with. High The high interest in this subject results from the increase of the conducted depth exploitation, which contributes to the increase in both the vertical pres-sure and the complexity of geological – mining conditions and in- the intensification of natural hazards. Another reason is the tendency of decreasing the thickness of the exploited ores deposits. Wooden crib support is used Both both in underground ore, hard coal and salt mining is used wooden crib support. Mining cribs with various configurations are especially useful for the reinforcement of excavations workings behind the front and for further strengthen of the crossings. In particular, additional reinforcement support in the form of wooden cribs (pile supporting), which shall be left empty or filled with waste rock is applied in the ore mining in places where found extended rooms or drifts are found or in places with degraded roof conditions, applies additional reinforcement support in the form of wooden cribs (pile supporting), which shall be left empty or filled with waste rock. During underground ex-ploitation is produced waste Waste rock, which comes from the access, prepar-atory excavations and from ongoing field of exploitation is produced during underground exploitation. In the case of the underground exploitation of cop-per ore, waste rock is used to fill voids after exploitation as rock stowing. It is also used for filling mining wooden cribs, as an artificial support and for harder transportation roads. This paper presents the results of the laboratory strength tests performed on models of four-point timber cribs, built with beams set horizontally, at the ge-ometrical scale of 1:10. In the laboratory research Research wooden cribs models with size 200 × 200 × 200 mm and 100 × 100 × 100 mm were used in the laboratory. The paper describes the maximum loading capacity of the cribs consisted consisting only of beams and filled with waste rocks. In addition, a vertical and appropriate strain of cribs at maximum force was shown. On the basis of laboratory research it was found that the use of the same number of timbers and the management of waste rocks, the filling of the four-point cribs with the waste rocks allowed several times to increase its support to be increased several times.

Abstract

Steel and cast-iron products, due to their low price and beneficial properties, are the most widely used among metals; their consumption has become an indicator of the economic development of countries. The characteristics of iron raw materials, in relation to current metallurgical requirements, are presented in the present this article. The globalization of the trade and development of steelmaking technologies have caused significant changes in the quality of raw materials in the last half-century forcing improvements in processing technologies. In many countries, standard concentrates (at least 60% Fe) are almost twice as rich as those processed in the mid-20th century. Methods of quality assessment have been improved and quality standards tightened. The quality requirements for the most important raw materials ‒ iron ores and concentrates, steel scrap, major alloy metals, coking coal, and coke, as well as gas and other energy media ‒ are reviewed in the present paper. Particular attention is paid to the quality testing methodology. The quality of many raw materials is evaluated multi-parametrically: both chemical and physical characteristics are important. Lower-quality parameters in raw materials equate to significantly lower prices obtained by suppliers in the market. The markets for these raw materials are diversified and governed by separate sets of newly introduced rules. Price benchmarks (e.g. for standard Australian metallurgical coal) or indices (for iron concentrates) apply. Some raw materials are quoted within the framework of the commodity market system (certain alloying components and steel scrap). The abandonment of the long-established system of multi-annual contracts has led to wide fluctuations in prices, which have reached a scale similar to that of other metals.

Abstract

The Distinctness of the Workers Settlement as a Housing Estate of the City – Ruda Śląska Case Study. The paper shows the issue of the workers settlements autonomy as a housing estate. The study was conducted in Ruda Śląska town, because this town is a typical example of the multicenter town developed in the era of workers settlements industrialization. A significant number of patronage settlements allowed to try to determine their distinctiveness in respect of their neighborhood or related to town district. Researched issue was presented by three aspects: indicating the urban and architectural contrasts, studying of the internal urban pattern of settlements and by indicating the specific nature of backyards in the workers settlements complexes. Detailed studies were related to urban interiors and their infrastructure and organization in the context of social relations. Contemporary the workers settlements are an important heritage of the industrial period in Ruda Śląska town and in others Upper Silesian towns, and they are often characterized by interesting urban-architectural values. Unfortunately, the most of the researched settlements have never been modernized, and therefore they are systematic degrade, both in housing substance and public spaces.

Abstract

The presented article describes the relationship between lithological and facies development of reservoir rocks in the area of the roof elevation of the Weissliegend sandstones, with a particular emphasis on the influence of elevation on the occurrence of low mineralization zones in the deposit area. To illustrate the variability of the deposit parameters, closely related to the facies and lithological conditions of the host rocks, three-dimensional lithological and geochemical models for two research areas were developed using the geostatistical methods and based on field observations and the sampling of the deposit. The research area includes parts of the Northern Elevation of Rudna and the surrounding depressions within the boundaries of the Sieroszowice and Rudna deposits. Based on cross-sections of the 3D models, a different deposit formation in the roof elevation area of sandstone formations has been characterized; the lithological profile is defined as „atypical” due to the absence of a copper-bearing shale series, the most characteristic layer for copper ore deposits in the Fore -Sudetic monocline. Large variations in the shape of the deposit and the irregular boundaries of both balance mineralization and enclaves of gangue have been confirmed. The presence of large-scale enclaves of igneous rock in the entire profile of the Lower Zechstein rocks (areas without the balance copper mineralization) and small areas of gangue (sandstone) enriched with anhydrite binders adjacent to the parts of balance deposit located in argillaceous sandstone has been revealed. The possibility of the occurrence of gangue, in the area of the roof elevation of the Weissliegend sandstones directly adjacent to the border with calcareous dolomite, and irregular gangue partings in sandstone formations in the balance deposit was indicated. In addition, small areas of strong enrichment in Cu sulphides were observed in the contact zones between sulphate and clay binders in the Weissliegend sandstone series.

Abstract

Mining-induced seismicity, particularly high-energy seismic events, is a major factor giving rise to dynamic phenomena within the rock strata. Rockbursts and stress relief events produce the most serious consequences in underground mines, are most difficult to predict and tend to interact with other mining hazards, thus making control measures difficult to implement. In the context of steadily increasing mining depth within copper mines in the Legnica-Głogów Copper Belt Area (Poland) alongside the gradually decreasing effective mining thickness, a study of the causes and specificity of mining-induced seismicity in specific geological and mining settings may improve the effectiveness of the prevention and control measures taken to limit the negative impacts of rockbursts in underground mine workings, thus ensuring safe working conditions for miners. This study investigates the presumed relationship between the mined ore deposit thickness and fundamental parameters of mining-induced seismicity, with the main focus on the actual locations of their epicenters with respect to the working face in commonly used room-and-pillar systems. Data recalled in this study was supplied by the O/ZG Rudna geophysics station. Based on information about the actual ore deposit thickness in particular sections of the mines (Rudna Główna, Rudna Północna, Rudna Zachodnia) and recent reports on seismic activity in this area, three panels were selected for further studies (each in different mine region), where the ore deposit thickness was varied (panel G-7/5 – Rudna Główna, panel XX/1 – Rudna Północna, panel XIX/1 – Rudna Zachodnia). Data from seismic activity reports in those regions was used for energetic and quantitative analysis of seismic events in the context of the epicenter location with respect to the selected mining system components: undisturbed strata, working face and abandoned excavations. In consideration of the available rockburst control methods and preventive measures, all events (above 1 × 103 J) registered in the database were analysed to infer about the global rockburst hazard level in the panel and phenomena induced (provoked) by blasting were considered in order to evaluate the effectiveness of the implemented control measures.

Abstract

The article describes the influence of anomalous values and local variability on the structure of variability and the estimation of deposit parameters. The research was carried out using statistical and geostatistical methods based on the Pb accumulation index in the shale series in part of the Cu-Ag ore deposit, LGCD (Lubin-Głogów Copper District). The authors recommend the use of a geostatistical tool, the so-called semivariogram cloud to determine the anomalous values. Anomalous values determined by the geostatistical method and removed from the dataset have resulted in a significant reduction of the relative variability of data, which is still very large in the case of the analyzed parameter or parameters with similar statistical features such as extreme variability and strongly asymmetric distribution. Calculations of the resources of this element can be treated only as estimates and formally classified to category D. The hypothetical assumption of the absence of sampling errors, resulting in a decrease in the magnitude of local variation, leads to a certain reduction of the median error of resource estimates. However, they are still high (> 35%). This is due to the large natural variability of the accumulation index of Pb on the local observation scale. The current method for collecting samples from mine workings of the Cu-Ag deposits in the Lubin-Głogów Copper District (LGCD), aimed at the proper assessment of copper resources, the Cu content, and at estimating the quality of copper output, makes it impossible to achieve an accuracy of estimates of Pb resources similar to that obtained for the main metal. Theoretically, this effect can be achieved by a strong concentration of the sample collection points and thanks to a multiple increase in the samples weight; this, however, is unrealistic for both economic and organizational reasons. It is therefore to be expected that the assessment of Pb resources and other accompanying elements of similar statistical features (e.g. As), located in parts of the deposit where mining activities are to be carried out, will be subject to significant errors.

Abstract

W kopalniach rud miedzi należących do K GHM Polska Miedź podstawowym zagrożeniem naturalnym jest zagrożenie tąpaniami, którego ograniczanie wymaga odpowiednio dobranych metod oceny jego stanu oraz skuteczności jego zwalczania. Te pierwsze pozwalają określić prawdopodobieństwo wzrostu zagrożenia, a te drugie służą do zapobiegania wystąpieniu jego negatywnych skutków. Dzięki odpowiedniej ocenie stanu zagrożenia, zwiększa się skuteczność jego ograniczania. Jedną z metod bieżącej oceny stanu zagrożenia sejsmicznego jest pomiar konwergencji wyrobisk górniczych. W kopalniach niejednokrotnie stwierdzano, że wzrost konwergencji a także jej zanik, bądź nieregularny przebieg mogą oznaczać wzrost zagrożenia. Podjęto próbę określenia związku pomiędzy zmianami pionowej liniowej konwergencji wyrobisk a aktywnością sejsmiczną górotworu. Wyniki takiej analizy mogą pozwolić na wstępną weryfikację pionowej konwergencji jako wskaźnika stanu zagrożenia sejsmicznego. Analizę przeprowadzono dla oddziału wydobywczego o wysokiej aktywności sejsmicznej (III stopień zagrożenia tąpaniami) w kopalni Polkowice-Sieroszowice. W czasie objętym analizą wszystkie zjawiska ze skutkami w wyrobiskach, które wystąpiły w kopalni, miały miejsce w tym oddziale. Przeprowadzono analizę konwergencji pionowej w okresach wysokiej i niskiej aktywności sejsmicznej. O pisano zmienność średniej 30-dobowej konwergencji pionowej (obliczanej dla ostatnich 30 dni wstecz) i zmiany średniej dobowej konwergencji pionowej. Zwrócono uwagę na skokowe dobowe zmiany konwergencji, nagły jej zanik oraz na jej średnią 30-dobową. O bliczono skuteczność aktywnej i technologicznej profilaktyki tapaniowej. Określono związek między zmianami konwergencji i energią sejsmiczną oraz skutecznością metod profilaktyki tąpaniowej poprzez obliczenie współczynników korelacji liniowej.
