Abstract: Variable rock mass behaviour is present in Witwatersrand and Bushveld mining districts. Geotechnical classification of the stoping environments is therefore essential. However, a sound methodology that classifies these environments had not been established before 1997. This is the major focus of this investigation. A detailed literature review, in addition, reveals that current rock mass classification systems do not adequately address the basic requirements for defining geotechnical areas in South African gold and platinum stoping horizons.
