Innovative mining.

optimised ore recovery.

Many hard rock mines have ore rich reserves, contained in unmined area's, commonly referred to as sterilised ore.

Some causes of sterilised ore could be dry filled stopes, unfilled stopes, narrow unstable pillars and low grade pillars. Basically the inability to access valuable ore deposits for removal.

Through unique and well proven methodologies pioneered by Minova our solutions can maximise the extraction of previously sterilised ore resources that support

  • Increased revenue from extraction of additional mineral resources
  • Cost effective usage of R.O.M waste rock material
  • Providing structural elements of a known strength for mine life extension
  • Improved management of HSE risk

1. Cavity & Backfilling

Increasing pressure from mining activity and variable geotechnical conditions can cause fractured ground, which if not supported, may lead to incidents of rock fall or roof collapse.

Learn more about cavity filling

High volume grouts

2. Ground Control

Ground control is fundamental to the integrity and safety of underground mining operations. Rock reinforcement methods vary and include point anchored bolts, friction bolts and grouted bolts. Minova offer multiple solutions for a wide range of bolts.

Not all resin bolts are the same.

3. Water control

Water ingress into an underground mine can represent a major risk if not recognised and rectified.

4. Ore Recovery Optimisation

Many hard rock mines have sterilised rich ore left behind in vertical and horizontal pillars. With the placement of backfill adjacent to these resources, our solutions support safe and optimal ore recovery operations.

PHASE 1: Pre-Work

1. Identify the area of sterilised ore, the volume, grade and risk

2. Numerical modelling to determine stability of surrounding area, thickness of consolidated fill required, determination of the UCS of the filler, void ratio and analysis of mine water

2. Numerical modelling to determine stability of surrounding area, thickness of consolidated fill required, determination of the UCS of the filler, void ratio and analysis of mine water

3. Rock In The Box Test to determine permeability of the fill

4. Site inspection

PHASE 2: Application

drilling and placement of grouting holes

setup of equipment

delivery of the stabilising grout

quality control testing 

delivery of the stabilising grout
