The active mine workings are considered as full-scale models. It is shown that the database containing the data on mining-geological conditions, types, parameters and states of mine workings support, adapted for the selection of full-scale models according to the similarity conditions, allows to use effectively the accumulated experience of underground workings operation to justify the reliable decisions at the development of new sections of deposits.
