Stranded Pillar Recovery

Pre-charge pillars with WebGen™ for reduced extraction costs and increased ore recovery.

Pillar extraction is high cost and resource intensive in underground operations. Pre-charging the pillar with the main stope using WebGenTM can reduce extraction costs by eliminating the need to drill and blast a return development heading.
