"The business of mining deep: below 2.5kms"

Ultra-Deep Mining Network

The Network

UDMN aims to become the leading expert in Ultra-Deep (below 2.5km) research and innovation and to solve the challenges that impact resource extraction in these environments. By supporting solution providers capable of creating the industry-needed tools and technologies in the short term, it will lead the way in helping ultra-deep mines to operate more effectively and safely, generate more value, improve the human environment and enhance mine productivity.

Research Themes

Through this network there are four strategic themes:

Rock stress risk reduction; improve the control of stability in deep underground excavations

Energy reduction: the 40% Mine; improve the energy consumption profile of deep mines

Novel methods of material transport and productivity; increase the rates of development and production in mines

Improved human health; use human centered approach to improve environment in deep mines
