Abstract
The concept of an automated continuous explosive excavation system (acee) for the underground mining applications of development drifting and room-and-pillar mining has been evaluated in comparison with conventional drill, blast, and muck operations. The role and possible extent of application of this method was examined in a defined mine environment. Step-by-step procedures were developed to quantify the evaluation process where this appeared feasible. One conclusion was that a system approach to acee design is not only feasible but attainable within the state of the art. Several preliminary design concepts were formulated and examined in order to determine what further research or development might be needed to realize them.
