WORKING IN WEAK ROCK

Swedish rock blasting techniques are highly advanced, due in no small measure to the methods of rock reinforcement in use: driving tunnels with relatively thin layers of shotcrete reinforcement, supplemented with rock bolts where necessary, is quite normal in Sweden, even when the rock is very weak. The Robot and Trixer Stabilator Shotcreting System is described in the article, together with some of the contracts where it has been successfully implemented.
