INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGY SYSTEM FOR GROUND SUPPORT WITH A FAST, SAFE AND FULLY MECHANIZED WAY OF INSTALLING WIRE MESH

World Mining Congress
Ever increasing depth of mineral extraction presents a challenging environment for hard rock underground mines. High in-situ stresses and associated seismicity with potential rockburst hazards are the major decisive factors contributing to the choice of a ground support regime. Conventional ground support systems, designed primarily for static loads, are not always capable of providing safe working conditions for underground personnel in seismically active mines. Systems specifically developed to resist dynamic loading and allowing for larger deformations are therefore preferred alternatives.
