Temporary Rib Pillar Method

Pre-charge temporary pillars with WebGen™ for reduced dilution and increased truck fill factors.

View Video 

WebGenTM has enabled new revolutionary mining methods to extract ore pillars that previously could not be recovered.

The Temporary Rib Pillar (TRP) method allows temporary pillars to be pre-charged with WebGenTM to hold back the waste rock back fill in mining methods like modified AVOCA. The inaccessible pillars can be blasted later delivering reduced dilution, increased truck fill factors and improved overall productivity.
