Ground support and control systems are essential to modern, safe mining operations. They provide the means to economically stabilise rock faces and geological structures which would otherwise threaten the safety and viability of the mine, its personnel and material assets.  

From the requirement to create artificially steepened walls in excavations for construction purposes to the impact from the forces of nature, ground support and control systems to manage a range of geotechnical environments.

As well as open pit, underground, mine infrastructure and civil ground support services, we also provide highly trained and experienced operators for industrial rope access.

Open Pit

Wall stabilisation Rockfall protection systems Ramp protection and reinstatement Erosion control Geotechnical instrumentation Mesh drapes and netting W-straps and cable lacing Shotcreting and fibrecreting

Underground

Portal supports Drives, pillar, intersection and draw point supports Stoping and dilution control Decline and drive rehabilitation Shotcreting and fibrecreting

Mine Infrastructure

Crusher pocket wall support Ground anchors for construction Void investigation / remediation Gabion and retaining walls

Civil

Embankment and slope stabilisation Road and rail cuttings rockfall protection Debris and erosion control Excavation support for infrastructure Ground anchors for construction

Technical Access

Aligned to internationally recognised standards through membership of the industry body IRATA, SRG employs comprehensive safety and quality management systems for the use of rope access techniques in drilling, geotechnical and construction services where challenging work environments may call for the use of such solutions.

  • Open pit stabilisation and slope treatments
  • In-pit construction including dewatering pipe installations
  • Ground support and control for road and rail cuttings
  • Rockfall protection barriers
  • Helicopter material transport and placement

Benefits of using SRG for rope access include:

  • Extremely safe, when combined with modern industry standard techniques
  • Provides much needed technical access to hard to reach areas
  • Offers flexibility and adaptability
  • Has the potential for unique solutions
  • More cost effective and flexible than scaffolding
