Innovative Mining Solution Finalist: Springvale Coal

Springvale Coal is a finalist in the 5th Annual Australian Mining Prospect Awards for the development of its Strata Management System.

Springvale Coal is a finalist in the 5th Annual Australian Mining Prospect Awards for the development of its Strata Management System.

The Strata Management System is based on extensive roof monitoring, an intensive inspection regime, TARPS and a Geological Structural Model.

The Geological Structural Model includes such elements as seam contours, localised seam Swillies, seam structures, seam roof lithology, surface plateau and valley zones and a magnetic determination of the “basement structures” well below the seam floor.

Springvale created a system that would support the roof of the mine and make unexpected rock falls less frequent.
