Abstract: Rockbursts are a major hazard in South African deep-level gold mines. The severity of damage due to a seismic event often varies greatly over small distances. The goal of this project is to discover the reasons for this variation in the severity of damage. It is believed that a detailed understanding of the damage mechanisms, and the application of this knowledge to the design and support of excavations, will lead to a reduction in the hazard posed by rockbursts.
