In this episode, we give a great overview of Ground Support for Underground Mining. Topics discussed include:

– How different bolts work (Split Sets, Resin bolts, MDX’s, Swellex, Self Drilling Split Sets etc)

– Which bolts are good in which ground

– Using the correct bit size for different bolts and lengths

– Does an MDX bolt perform as well as a Resin bolt?

– Does bolting achieve anything in really soft/broken ground?

and plenty more
