SURFACE TO SEAM SYSTEMS

FROM THE SURFACE TO UNDERGROUND.

Deliver grout and chemical products from the surface to underground. Our delivery system delivers grout based products from the surface to underground via a borehole or portal, and takes around 15 minutes to fill a pumpable crib. Our chemicals can be pumped up to 3,000 m from the surface using a variety of pumping methods. 

Our surface to seam solutions include:

Pumpable cribs
Ventilation seals
Strata Injection Chemicals

 

Key benefits:

• Reduce chemical exposure and manual handling of chemicals
• Reduces the need for "exclusion zones"
• Maximise safety, increase efficiency and minimise labour footprint
• Pumping chemicals from the service eliminates up to 95% of activity
• Easy to set-up and relocate
• Install ventilation seals and pumpable cribs using the same equipment

 

Minova have successfully completed a range of surface to seam applications:

• Pumpable cribs installed in under 15 mins
• Complete ventilation plug seal (from the surface) in 4-6 hours. Rated 120psi, pumped 160m deep down a borehole and 700m horizontally to complete 6 bulkheads
