The geomechanical conditions of underground gold ore mining in thin steeply dipping ore body under open pit bottom are assessed using the dedicated 3D parameter-oriented model of mine design. The numerical model has produced the forecast stress pattern maps of ore and rock mass disturbed by mining operations. Stability justification is implemented for a sill pillar at a depth of 140 m in case of active stoping two levels above and below the pillar. Safe parameters and conditions are determined for the cut-and-dry fill mining operations.
