AbstractThe grouping of granite areas in Zhytomyr region was made on the basis of cluster analysis. It was determined the character of interconnection among structure indexes of granite deposits and received analytical dependence for measuring deposit's size. The analysis of fracture systems using different methods of clustering was made. It was grounded that tlie maximum clustering efficiency was characteristic for K-means (Chebychev Distances) method. Tlie fracture systems were allocated and their parameters were defined. Basing on the defmed system of fractures and the previous results of assessing dependence of the energy efficiency of ruining granites depending 011 the separation surface, it was grounded the optimal direction of mining works development. Tlie cluster analysis of distances between the layer cracks for determining the rational heiglit of the quarry ledge was made. The rational direction of mining operations, that would coincide witli tlie orientation of the lengthwise system of fractures and would comprise 70,00000° 8,16497° was substantiated. Using the cluster analysis for higli-altitude localization of fractures of natural separation allowed giving the proofs to the altitude of terraces for different horizons. It was proved the efficiency of applying cluster analysis for determining optimal parameters for the system of granite deposits development.
