I am trying to find information on the phenomena known as a ‘Mud Rush’. This occurs in the ore passes of underground mines where the material in the ore pass suddenly changes from a sold mass to a virtual liquid. When the ore pass is opened the material flows out engulfing the people and equipment in the exit area. I am researching this as I believe that the Particle Size Distribution and moisture levels play a significant role and urgently need to find a method of preventing any re- occurrence Thank You Phil Lovering
