This report describes the work carried out for the Mining Geohazard facet of the GeoHazarDs project up to the 31st March 2003 when development work on the mining aspects of the project were suspended. The work carried out so far has been restricted to England and Wales, once the methodology has been verified the area covered will be extended to incorporate Scotland. Work carried out so far has covered • Simultaneous data capture of local knowledge and national data coverages as a foundation for the project. • Establishment of a GIS framework to hold all data produced and utilised by the project. • Explanations of the data structure from capture and manipulation of the Overview ARUP data layer through to the inclusion of detailed local datasets e.g. the Bath stone information. • Proposed methodology using shafts, veins and formations rated on a series of factors with worked examples illustrating strengths and weaknesses of the methods. • Future modifications to the methodology developed so far, looking at spheres of influence rather than raw or generalised themes.
