​Backfilling

Backfilling in underground construction


Backfill (the process of back filling material into underground voids created by mining) is essential in many underground operations. Due to the demands caused by deeper mining operations, mine backfill is becoming an integral part of an efficient mining operation. Optimizing the backfill process leads to improvements in production, and ore and water recovery. A number of operational challenges can be resolved through chemical solutions.

The type of backfill used depends on the specific mineralogy and geotechnical requirements. Master Builders Solutions connects its understanding of the mining process, mineralogy and chemistry expertise to help mining companies resolve issues and run sustainable backfill operations, at lower costs and reduced risk.​
