    IntroductionDevelopment of Standardized Mining PracticesThe Role of Ground Penetrating RadarConclusionAcknowledgementsConventional underground potash mining in Saskatchewan occurs within a comparatively narrow, 500 km long corridor running from the Saskatoon area to the southern border with Manitoba (Figure 1). This corridor roughly parallels the shallow northern sub-crop edge of the Prairie Evaporite salts which host potash deposits at depths of 925 to 1200m. Currently there are eight mines in Saskatchewan where potash is mined using conventiSee more on csegrecorder

    2016-07-25  However, longwall mining results in subsidence of the ground. The potash deposits are overlain by water bearing startas, any ground subsidence will result in inflow of the groundwater in the mine. This can be very catastrophic as this will dissolve the salts found around the potash deposits.

    Potash mines install rock bolts in anomalous ground conditions to counter this. This is currently done using two different machines and results in a lot of down time for the mining operation. It has been theorized that by combining the two machines into one, time can be saved from the current process and result in increased stability of the mine back. This study pertains to the feasibility of ...

    One of the major issues facing potash mining in Saskatchewan is the potential for water to enter the mine from water-bearing rocks above mining operations. Rocks near-mine are normally considered dry and low risk. However, under some conditions, in localized areas, there is the potential for unsaturated water to have been introduced into the rock formations near the potash ore.
