The SMT Scharf Mission:
"Tunnel logistics makes high demands due to geologically demanding conditions, confined spaces in combination with large and heavy transport goods. Challenges that we are happy to meet and for which we have always been able to find an individual transport solution for our customers."
GeoResources Journal - the international journal for resources, mining, tunnelling, geotechnics, energy - Open Access!
Skilled professionals in our geotechnical, tunnelling, mining and raw materials sectors make an important contribution to sustainable and fair living conditions.
From first Ideas to Implementation – Satisfaction is guaranteed when we are enthusiastic about what we construct!
Enthusiasm about what we do when we build something is an important key to job satisfaction; communicating this to others, valuing people we deal with, and attracting skilled personnel in future generations are all part of this.
Inspections of Flexible Protection Systems against Natural Hazards – Using and passing on Special Knowledge
Inspections of flexible protection systems against natural hazards are becoming increasingly important. Geobrugg passes on its knowledge in socalled CONSIS courses to keep the function of structures and save money over the lifetime.
As a result of demographic trends and the huge challenge that climate change has brought to society many of the companies involved in the geotechnical engineering, tunnel construction and mineral extraction sectors are currently facing a skills shortage in STEM subjects. What does management have to do to win and retain skilled employees, to promote fair working relationships within the team and to build for the future?
In the Brenner Base Tunnel, the innovative DT923i tunnel drill rig from In the Brenner Base Tunnel, the innovative DT923i tunnel drill rig from Sandvik is in use for the first time in Central Europe and impresses around the clock with good driving progress and four cuttings per day.
Students from Freiberg University Mines Rescue and Mine-gas Protection Brigade highly placed at International Event
A team from Freiberg University of Mining and Technology has taken second place at this year’s MERD international mines rescue competition (Mine Emergency Rescue Development), which was held at the Colorado School of Mines in the USA. The theoretical knowledge and practical skills that were required for MERD come from teaching modules provided by the Department for Underground Mining Methodss and by the University’s student-run Mines Rescue Team.
Konrad Behnke studied geology in Germany with a semester and internship abroad. He left his comfort zone during the corona pandemic – travelling first to Scandinavia. He has been working as an exploration geologist in Australia since April 2022. In an interview with the GeoResources team he recounted his inspiring and uplifting experiences.
Wired rock-pressure measuring systems are not rated as suitable for the long-term monitoring of abandoned salt mines as they are expensive, technically complex and lacking in functional reliability. A ZIM cooperation project was therefore set up to develop, build and successfully test in situ a wireless measuring system designed for long-term measurement applications. The first prototypes are now ready for the instrumentation process.
Optimisation of Salt Production at Heilbronn Mine using a Combination Approach to conventional Mining and mechanical Cutting
Heilbronn mine has been producing rock salt for many years using both conventional mining and mechanical cutting, the two methods being operated independently of each other. With the rearrangement of the production panels the mine has now recently managed to combine the two techniques in such a way that manpower productivity has been improved, average production costs reduced and the mine’s delivery capacity increased, even when customer demand is at a very high level. In these ‘combination districts’ the bottom level of the winning face is excavated using continuous miner technology while the upper layers are then mined by drilling and blasting. This paper describes the background to this new production method together with the challenges arising and the targets that have been set.
