Research results of the problems concerning rock burst and technogenic seismicity on a number of mineral deposits of the Far East region of Russia are presented in the paper. The specificities and consequences of hazardous geodynamic phenomena on the underground mines, caused by activation of geomechanical processes in the course of large-scale mining operations, are considered in this article. The geomechanical processes are reflected in the form of reorganization and self-organization of block-structured rock massifs on the burst hazard Nikolayevsk and Antey mineral deposits. Comprehensive geomechanical monitoring systems are set up for studying multi-scale natural and technogenic processes. These systems consist of deformation and microseismic measuring devices and an acoustic emission recorder and other devices as well, ensuring an effective registration and in-depth analysis of a wide range of parameters of geophysical wave fields, which are variable in respect to space and time. New experimental data concerning the impact of seismic waves from technological explosions and remote earthquakes on the deformation field of the Earth’s crust site is obtained by applying a system of geomechanical methods. These seismic waves have played a role of triggering devices for a number of destructive geodynamic phenomena in the conditions of the extremely stressed and complex-structural rock massifs. Seismic waves have caused a steep increase of number and energy of seismic-acoustic events by 3–4 times on the Antey mineral deposit. It demonstrates the initiation of potentially burst hazard process of restructuring of the rock massif.
