A method to evaluate the regional stresses and the Young's modulus by analyzing mining induced deformation of the ground is proposed.<BR>Mining induced deformation is interpreted as the deformation due to the geometrical change of the ground surface caused by mine activity and it is classified in two types, i.e., the displacement increment induced by gravity and that by the horizontal regional strain. It is pointed out that both the regional strain and Young's modulus can be estimated by analyzing the mining induced deformation, because the displacement induced by the regional strain is independent of the Young's modulus and the displacement induced by the gravity is inversely proportional to the Young's modulus. <BR>The relative displacement due to mine excavation in Torigatayama mine were measured by GPS (Global Positioning System) and the regional stress state and Young's modulus were estimated by a back-analysis using three dimensional finite element method. It is shown that the maximum principal direction of regional stresses is almost NE-SW and Young's modulus of the ground is 3 to 6GPa in the present field.
