A safer, easier-to-install ground reinforcement solution has improved cycle times and helped a major mining services provider exceed ambitious development targets at their contract site in north-west Queensland, home to one of the world’s largest known zinc deposits.

In the right conditions, these bolts can replace a variety of common ground support systems, including resin, stiff split sets and even cable bolting. Faster installation times, tougher bolts and less manual handling are just some of the results from the latest trial with one of Australia’s largest contractors, revolutionizing the ground reinforcement solution being implemented at the site.
