The relevance of the work is due to the introduction of new high-intensity mining technologies underground, the conduct of mining operations at ever greater depths of coal and ore, changes in the explosive properties of the extracted raw materials, as well as incidents and accidents of varying severity occurring at mining facilities. There is an opinion that one of the causes of accidents and emergencies in mines is the inability to take into account both the features of the manifestation of the properties of the rock mass and the change in the explosive properties of minerals. The problem of applying a risk-oriented approach, namely a comprehensive assessment of the risk of accidents, in this case fires and/or explosions, has not been resolved. The applied risk calculation methods are diverse, as a rule, the accuracy of the results is low, and none of them allows taking into account all the identifiable hazards that lead to the occurrence of endogenous and exogenous fires, as well as explosions of hybrid mixtures in the space of mine workings. This article attempts to study in detail the prerequisites for applying a risk-based approach to solving this problem. Theoretical approaches and risk assessment in mines and mines are considered and methods are given that allow in express mode to obtain up-to-date information on the explosive and fire hazardous properties of the extracted raw materials.
