Speaker Bio: Mr. John Elliott

Mr. John Elliott is the Managing Director of the Alan Auld Group, a specialist underground consultancy specialising in deep shaft and tunnel design. John has 35 years’ underground construction experience gained from working with leading contractors and is very experienced in underground construction methodology, including sequencing and support systems in poor ground. He has been involved in many complex underground construction projects in both the urban civil tunnelling and mining industries.

Presentation Topic:
Soft Ground Tunnelling in a Hard Rock Industry

Whilst sprayed concrete (shotcrete) is common in many mines, it is rarely used in mining as a structural shell to provide support, as is common to soft ground tunnelling. When ground conditions are poor, sprayed concrete if designed and managed correctly, is a very effective support system. Making the switch from a hard rock mining to the soft ground civil engineering mindset can be difficult, with significant changes required to excavation sequencing, quality control and lining design. This paper aims to outline the fundamentals of applying soft ground tunnelling techniques to a mining environment through a discussion of recent projects which implemented this approach.
