Block Caving equipment
Cavers and cave specialists use block-caving equipment to protect themselves while exploring caves. Block-caving equipment allows a large volume of rocks to be extracted efficiently. This technique includes two deep-hole caving techniques: horizontal deep-hole caving and vertical deep-hole caving. It is classified into two mining schemes: stage-forced caving with compensation space and stage-forced caving for continuous extracting.
The grade distribution and the geological and geotechnical features of the ore body are the main factors to be taken into account when using block-caving equipment with any kind of commodity.
The caving method should be carried out with precautionary measures. The basic block-caving equipment during the undermining process is as follows:
Helmet: The helmet is essential protection for your head and the place where the headlamp is mounted.
Headlamp: You must carry a headlamp or head torch to navigate the dark areas.
Footwear: You need sturdy boots for caving with good rubber soles since you will encounter rock climbing sections.
Caving suit: A jumpsuit works best during the undermining process.
Waist belt: You need to carry a waist belt to keep batteries, spare headlamps, or other personal items.
Gloves: Wear rubber gloves to work in the wet passages.
Kneepads: Kneepads are essential for crawling around the caves.
Food and Healthy Drink: Get some energy bars and drink water and juice to keep yourself hydrated.

Block-caving is an advanced method to develop new mines or extend the operation of open pits. While the concept of block caving as a mass mining process is not new, the benefits of cost and increased production make it an attractive process. Our block-caving method involves mining deep, large, and low-grade Ore bodies whereby a large section of rock is undercut, creating an artificial cave that fills with its debris as it collapses. As a result, a pre-constructed series of funnels and access tunnels are developed, which enables miners to constantly extract from here. With the rise of mines accessing deeper and lower-grade ores, this block-caving method is becoming increasingly popular all around the world including Australia and Chile. To assist in increasing production rates related to block caving, high-pressure pre-conditioning systems are required.
