Seismic Hazard Assessment

Statistical information on various aspects of seismicity help to detect trends and patterns Stats
PPV estimate for an event of given Magnitude and location PPV small
Diverging trends in seismic parameters reflecting changes in stress and seismic deformation in the rock mass DivTrends

Comparative seismic hazard ranking of working places (based on face configuration, geology, production rate, seismic history) Ranking

There are well over fifty established short-, medium- and long-term seismic hazard quantification methods to choose from. What is suitable in a given mining situation depends on the nature of seismic response to mining, customer needs and the resources available for risk amelioration.
