  • Dickens, J; Teleka, R (IEEE Xplore, 2013-10)
    The South African mining industry is plagued by accidents, the most common of which are rock falls. In order to carry out its mandate of improving the quality of life of South African citizens, the Council for Scientific ...
  • Oelofse, Suzanna HH (The Icfai University Press, 2009)
    Acid Mine Discharge (AMD) is a contaminated waste generated out of the mining activities both during and after the operation period. AMD has adverse impact on the socio-economic conditions of the people residing in and ...
  • Oelofse, Suzanna HH (Department of Environmental Affiars and Tourism (DEAT), 2008-07)
    A major environmental problem relating to mining in many parts of the world is uncontrolled discharge of contaminated water (or decant) from abandoned mines. This document provides information on emerging issues that may ...
  • Milev, AM; Spottiswoode, SM; Noble, KR (Pergamon-Elsevier Science Ltd, 1995-09)
    Mining results in seismic activity of varying intensity, from small micro seismic events to larger seismic events, often associated with significant seismic induced damages. This work deals with the understanding of the ...
  • Day, JA (Cooperative Scientific Programmes: CSIR, 1983-06)
    The notion of ecological convergence has influenced taxonomists and biogeographers since the development of ecology in the mid-nineteenth century. Our initial understanding of the ecosystems of the world resulted from plant ...
  • Godfrey, Linda K; Oelofse, Suzanna HH; Phiri, A; Nahman, Anton; Hall, J (CSIR, 2007-05)
    This report presents the findings of research conducted by the CSIR. This research was prompted by the Princess dump case study, a project conducted by then the CSIR Miningtek. The report aims to unpack the current governance ...
  • Oboirien, BO; Engelbrecht, AD; North, BC; Eramus, RM; Falcon, R (American Chemical Society, 2011-09)
    The mineral-char interaction can occur during the gasification of high-ash coals in fluidized-bed gasifiers when the melted minerals cover the char surface by penetrating into the cracks and pores of the char. In addition ...
  • Chamber of Mines, South Africa (Chamber of Mines Services, 1978)
    In simple terms Fanakalo means 'like this'. Fanakalo originated in the sugar industry of KwaZulu Natal as a result of Indians trying to learn English and Zulu at the same time. The language spread across the boarders of ...
  • Senatla, Mamahloko; Mushwana, Crescent (2017-08)
    Distributed renewable energy competitiveness is becoming a reality in most countries resulting in an increase of installed capacity in both developed and developing countries. Mexico, India, Germany, Zambia and South Africa ...
  • Mudali, P; Adigun, MO; Emuoyibofarhe, JO (2006-09)
    This paper provides an outline of research being conducted to minimize the disruptive effects of device mobility in wireless computational grid networks. The proposed wireless grid framework uses the existing GSM cellular ...
  • Johnson, R (1995-12)
    The aim of this long-term project has been to focus on the extreme high-stress end of the mining spectrum. Such high stress conditions will prevail in certain ultra-deep mining operation of the near future, and are already ...
  • Johnson, R (1995-12)
    A questionnaire related to mining at great depth and in very high stress conditions has been completed with the assistance of mine rock mechanics personnel on over twenty mines in all mining districts, and covering all ...
  • Shahdi, A (2012-10)
    In this presentation, the author outlines the application of an autonomous robotics platform in performing safety surveys and mapping of active mines.
  • Spottiswoode, SM; Roberts, MCK (CSIR, 2001-12)
