Abstract

A database of in situ stress measurements in Southern Africa, including results from depths of several metres to about 3000m, has been compiled. The database can be interrogated using ArcExplorer. The data have been evaluated and reanalysed where considered necessary. Where possible, the data entered into the database have included the location, the mine or project, the rock type and its deformation properties, the geology, the in situ principal stresses and components, an estimate of the overburden stress, comments, and gradings of the qualities of the measurements. The results available from the database indicate that the major horizontal principal stresses in Southern Africa trend approximately north west - south east. The major horizontal stress is often greater than the vertical overburden stress.
