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.

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.
