[SCG60-03] Remarkable crustal strain and Groundwater level changes associated with reflood of the underground gallery
Keywords:reflood of the underground gallery, Strain observation, Groundwater level observation
At Tono mine, backfilling of underground galleries were started from March 2012 and completed in March 2015. The drainage pump stopped on December 9, 2014. In this study, we report the crustal strain changes associated with reflood of the underground gallery. As research advances, the following results were obtained: (1) Observed strain change of maximum principal strain, minimum principal strain, and areal strain at the BH-1 site are -1.075×10-6 strain, -5.448×10-5 strain, -5.556-05×10-5 strain, respectively. (2) Compression of ENE-WSW direction is remarkable at the BH-1 site.
We consider that observed ‘compression to excellence in ENE-WSW direction’ may be caused by the hydrogeological structure, such as the orientation of the crack in Toki granite neighborhood of borehole strainmeter.
