There are many risks involved with subsurface construction, but most of them can be identified . By thoughtful management, some can be overcome, others reduced and still others shared in such a manner that their overall cost to the owner is minimized. When innovative methods, equipment, or materials are introduced, certain risks may increase to the point that advancement of the state-of-the-art is discouraged. In such cases, the owner, and society in general, may benefit from a reallocation of these risks. By recognizing the various classes of risk and deliberately setting out to manage them effectively, the mining and construction industries can optimize their service to society.
