Safety and productivity have always been the top drivers in just about any mining operation. Yet as facilities age and the need for return on investment grows, these two parameters often work against each other. Austmine caught up with Greg Wearing from ground engineering specialist Mainmark to discuss why innovation holds the key and must become the core business function of any mining services company.
But when is a crack something minor or a problem that needs to be tackled on a bigger scale?

The successful remediation of an abandoned mineshaft in West Wyalong, NSW, has seen the project nominated as a finalist for International Project of the Year at the 2017 International Ground Engineering Awards in London.
The True Blue mineshaft was located beneath the car park of a local motel. It was 300 m deep and at risk of collapse. A previous attempt to remediate it with 300 t of concrete had caused it to partially cave-in under the weight and a 160-cubic-metre cavern had formed underground. This was causing the motel to subside and sink holes to form on the surface of the carpark.
