Peter Craig and Matthew Holden, Pumpable two-part resin cable bolt bonding material tests, Proceedings of the 2023 Resource Operators Conference, University of Wollongong - Mining Engineering, February 2023, 199-204.


The Australian underground mining industry extensively uses thixotropic cementitious grout as a bonding agent for cable bolts. Grout is very effective as a bonding agent but is prone to issues with consistently achieving full column encapsulation and has operational issues impacting production. An economically viable two-part resin bonding agent is being investigated by Jennmar which offers some operational advantages. This paper explores the bond strength evaluation of the two-part resin against cementitious grout.
