Abstract:
Cable bolting is rapidly increasing in popularity in underground mines as safety standards are raised and mining environments become more challenging. Traditional hand installation of cables can be time consuming, exposes personnel to unnecessary risks and has the potential for manual handling injuries. Mechanised cable bolting machines are gaining wider acceptance as the safety, efficiency and quality benefits associated with them are being realised by mine operators. This paper discusses the advantages and limitations associated with the use of mechanised cable bolt rigs in underground mines.
