This study models the relationship between dynamic stress and dynamic failure characteristics in the extremely complex geological setting of a metal mine. The study also discusses the relationship between dynamic failure characteristics and dynamic stress in the case of mining disturbance of overlying rock mass is also discussed from the micro and macroscopic perspectives. Firstly, according to the relationship between different processes of overlying rock damage evolution and stress (tensile, shear, and compressive stresses), dynamic damage to overburden rock was linked with different stresses to analyze the mechanisms by which different forms of stress lead to differing damage characteristics in overburden rock. Secondly, from the different damage characteristics associated with shear, tensile, and compressive stress, the internal stress distribution in overburden rock was separated into four areas: tensile-tensile, tensile-compressive, compressive-compressive, and shear-compressive. Finally, it is found that horizontal and vertical stresses vary according to mining processes, and the reasons for this are analyzed. A stress concentration curve attachment is a vaulted curve on different goaf horizontal level under different working size. The centrostigma of vertical stress and shear stress also forms an arch curve, resulting in a compressive balance arch.
