Monitoring and analysis of geophysical data and operational exploration results in the area of actual mining at iron ore deposits in Siberia identified faults which were seismically active and presented a rockburst hazard. The mining-induced conditions of the tectonic fault movements have been determined. The authors assessed deep rock pressure manifestations at some ore deposits, and elaborated alternative versions of a mining geotechnology to be applied to blind orebodies and protective pillars under river beds. This approach also applies to bulk mining methods such as caving and goaf stowing. The paper describes technological measures to protect from dynamic phenomena at the Siberian iron ore deposits.
