Criteria for system assessment of changes in natural and technological systems in subsurface use

Authors: Alenichev V. M.

Mining mining is accompanied by hazardous natural processes and phenomena in geospace. Mineral mining operations intersect zones with significantly different contents, textures and physical and mechanical characteristics of mineral, and hydrogeological and engineering properties of rock mass, which deviate from the average values taken as the source data in the design and substantiation of the internal structure of Geotechnology. For the comparative assessment of changes in natural and technological systems in subsurface use in different periods of time, it is necessary to undertake the comparative analysis of changes in it in the previous time periods. An integrated dimensionless additive indicator is justified for characterizing the actual change in the condition of the system as compared with the previous stage or a reference standard. When deviation is 4–5 %, the changes are considered as insignificant and the current condition of the system is assumed as stable. With deviations by more than 20%, the changes in the mining and technological system are significant and new engineering solutions are required: a project development for modernization, finalization, abandonment or closure of mine, or its re-equipment. If the value of the indicator is in the range of 5–20 %, the options that stabilize the functioning of the natural and technological system are justified by a decision-maker.

Keywords: mining and technological system, condition, deviation, integrated additive indicator, algorithm, change estimation.
