Grouting for ground water control in underground mining

  • G. P. Daw
  • C. A. Pollard


This paper is a general review of grouting techniques as applied at the various phases in the construction, development and operation of an underground mine.

The assessment of the groundwater problem and the general approach to grouting design and procedures are described, together with a number of case histories, from both the United Kingdom and overseas, which serve to illustrate the different forms of grouting.
