Numerical Modeling and Solution of Ground Water Inrush at the Baixiangshan Iron Mine
The Baixiangshan iron mine is a large scale underground mine under construction, and will be put into production in 2011. As hydro-geological conditions of the mine are extremely complicated, ground water inrush happened twice during excavation of the ventilation shaft in 2006 and 2009 respectively. The purpose of this paper is to control the ground water inrush and guide the safety production of the mine. Hence, the ground water state was firstly analyzed through the data of borehole and hydrologic geology. After that, hydro-geological models of the ground water system were built up. According to the hydro-geological models, mathematical models of the ground water were established. With the help of the software of Processing Modflow for Windows (PMWIN), the numerical model of the ground water was set up. Then, by using the SOR (Successive Over-Relaxation) iterative method, the numerical equations were solved. Finally, the district ground water inflow rate on the main mining levels and the dangerous districts of the ground water inrush was figured out. The results of the numerical solution are significant to the control of ground water inrush in the Baixiangshan iron mine.
