Optimised Underground Mine Design

For Conceptual PFS, BFS Implementation. Saxum conducts conceptual roof support design, pillar design strategy, pillar stability investigations and pre-feasibility studies. An integral part of these services include rock field strength tests of which the primary objective is to estimate the typical rock strength properties of the rock mass overlying the targeted coal seam constituting the resource and to obtain a better understanding of inherent geological anomalies or weaknesses within the overburden rock mass. Design and layout parameters can be set based on these tests.
