Abstract
Measurements of ground movements showed that a halo of cracking develops about a caving stope, extending to distances greater than 100 meters, the principal change of deformation being extension directed toward the cave. The development of the fracture zone of expansion has significant implications with respect to the caving, drawing, and ground support operations.
