block caving method of mining

Block caving is a mining method that relies upon natural forces to break the rock. The cave is initiated by an undercut where a large area beneath the mining block is removed; gravity induced stresses then develop within the rock, causing it to fracture. The fracturing process is progressive and affects the entire rock mass overlying the undercut.
