Abstract

Tunnelling under squeezing ground conditions poses significant challenges. There arefundamental differences in the choice of support for mining as opposed to civilengineering. This paper reviews ground support strategies that have been used tocontrol large deformations in mining excavations based on field data from five differentmines in Australia and Canada. Recommendations are made for improved groundcontrol strategies in squeezing rock conditions.
