Rock Engineering

CERTIFICATE IN ROCK MECHANICS

Part 1

This is a general paper covering basic rock mechanics theory applicable in all types of
mining environment.
The theoretical rock mechanics knowledge required here is thus of a fundamental
nature, and is not specific to any particular type of mining.

the mining of tabular orebodies in hard rock at shallow, moderate and great depthimages0RMFZYFN

Part 3 – 2

This is a specific mining type paper covering rock mechanics practice applicable in
tabular, soft rock mining environments at all depths.
The rock engineering knowledge required here is thus of a specific nature, relating to
the mining of tabular orebodies in soft rock at shallow, moderate and great depth.images0RMFZYFN

Part 3 – 3

This is a specific mining type paper covering rock mechanics practice applicable in
massive mining environments in hard and soft rock at all depths.
The rock engineering knowledge required here is thus of a specific nature, relating to
the mining of massive orebodies in hard and soft rock at shallow, moderate and great
depth.images0RMFZYFN

Part 3 – 4

This is a specific mining type paper covering rock mechanics practice applicable in
surface mining operations in hard and soft rock.
The rock engineering knowledge required here is thus of a specific nature, relating to
the surface mining of orebodies in hard and soft rock.images0RMFZYFN

Part 4

Although this practical examination syllabus is generic in nature, this is a specific
mining type oral examination covering the practice of rock mechanics in the
applicable mining environment
The rock engineering knowledge required here is thus of a specific nature, relating to
the mining of orebodies as contemplated in the appropriate Part-3 written examination
