Removal of Steel from Our Underground Ore Stream
Olympic Dam is an underground mine, meaning we have to constantly rehab areas of the mine that we have explored previously. This means installing cable bolts, split sets etc. as ground support. When we mine new areas that have previously be rehabilitated, we have the issue of this ground support steel entering our ore stream. This has the capability to damage conveyor belts, block feeders and bog our crusher.
