Water-Retaining Bulkhead Design For Water Ingress Management

January 5, 2015
Recent incidents of water inrush at underground mines in Queensland and New South Wales have underscored the role of engineered water-retaining bulkheads and dam walls as part of a water management plan. As underground mines across Australia recover from the impact of recent rainfall and subsequent flood levels, safety authorities are now warning mine operators […]

Geology Consolidation and Ventilation and Ventilation Control Devices in Underground Mines: Determination of Design, Monitoring and Safety Standards

January 5, 2015
M Salu Parsons Brinkerhoff ABSTRACT: While hazards resulting from spontaneous heating, gas migration, explosions and flooding remain a major threat to the safety and productivity of underground mines, specific research into overpressure ratings and integrity testing of ventilation control devices (VCDs), bulkheads and dams remains relatively limited. Given the difficulty to conduct field tests in […]

Advances in In-situ Testing of Ventilation Control Devices for Underground Mines

January 5, 2015
Greg Kay Aquacrete, Newcastle, NSW, Australia Michael Salu Parsons Brinckerhoff, Brisbane, QLD, Australia ABSTRACT: As underground mines increasingly face the challenge of maximising production without losing focus on safety excellence, the ability to predict the effectiveness and identify defects in mine seals and stoppings plays an increasingly important role in mine ventilation management. While technologies […]

In-situ Testing of VCDs: Aquacrete and PB Launch New Non-Destructive Testing Technique

January 5, 2015
Aquacrete, the Australian owned and operated ventilation control specialist, has developed in-situ testing technology that will allow underground mine operators to non-destructively verify the thickness and therefore overpressure rating compliance of ventilation control devices (VCDs). Launched at the Australian Mine Ventilation Conference at the University of New South Wales on 6 September, the Aquacrete Thickness […]

Life of Mine Planning

January 5, 2015
With the high level of risk associated with the design and construction of dam walls and bulkheads, we selected a New South Wales client where a combination of bulkheads and dam walls were constructed with Aquacrete Wet-Repel TM. Our observations and experiences in designing water-retaining structures with Wet-RepelTM confirmed that the most significant factors influencing […]

Barricades – Safer, Faster and Stronger with Aquacrete

January 5, 2015
Finding safe and efficient solutions in underground mining is not for the faint-hearted. As our technology and innovation team can verify, trialling new processes relies on a complex combination of engineering, practicality and complete confidence in products. Recently, Aquacrete played a small but pivotal role in an interesting project involving the construction of structural barricades […]
