Brochure: Ultrafine Cementitious Grout

Published Year: 2022

  • Ultrafine Cementitious Grouts from US Grout

Magazine Article: Sorting Out the Grout

Published Year: 2013

  • Tunnel contractors can choose whether to use cement or chemical grouts. To help them out, Britt Babcock discusses both types, which to use, when to use them and why...and an idea of how much it will all cost.

Magazine Article: To Grout Or Not To Grout?

Published Year: 2013

  • Groundwater can bring an underground mining operation to its knees, but it can be controlled with ingenuity, co-operation and grout expertise

News: Mitigating Inflow Due to Both Primary and Secondary Permeability in Mining

Published Year: 2013

  • Groundwater infiltration can be due to either primary or secondary permeability. When both types of permeability are present, mitigation requires versatility and cooperation between multiple project participants.

  • AvantiGrout - multiple grout solutions for more effective mining operations - before, during, and after construction

Flyer: Geotechnical Project Overview

Published Year: 2011

  • A brief list of sample geotechnical projects where Avanti's grouts have been successfully used.

Long-Term Performance of Grouting Around a Flood Control Bulkhead in Shoals, Indiana

Published Year: 2006

  • The long-term performance of the end-product is more important. For this reason, we have re-visited an 18-year-old mine grouting project that took place to prevent the flooding of a gypsum mine in Shoals, Indiana.

Ultrafine Cement Grout Seals Fissures in Salt Caverns

Published Year: 1999

  • The WIPP in New Mexico was created as an R&D facility to demonstrate safe, long-term disposal of radioactive wastes. However, before waste could be shipped to the plant, fissures in the underground salt cavern had to be sealed.

Case Study: AV-100 Chemical Grout Solves Leakage Problems in Tailings Dam for Large Copper/Gold Mine in Argentina

Published Year: 1998

  • This is a case study whereby acrylamide solution grout was used to achieve the “target residual permeability value” in the rock formation below a future tailings dam for a large copper/gold mine in Argentina.

Case Study: Consolidating Weakly Cemented Sandstone During Cross-Cut Construction

Published Year: 1960

  • Problem: At Seafield Colliery, three cross-cuts, 16-17 feet wide by 12- feet high, were being driven horizontally through the Millstone Grit series, which contained many weakly cemented and porous sandstones.

Case Study: Controlling Seepage During Shaft Sinking

Published Year: 1960

  • In order to reach newly discovered lead deposits, St. Joseph Leak Company had to sink large diameter deep shafts through permeable Lamotte Sandstone carrying ground water at high pressures.

Case Study: Cutting Water Flow in Colliery Drift

Published Year: 1960

  • Problem: In driving two drifts for this new project, several badly fissured water-bearing rock zones were intercepted. Upon completion, water at the rate of several thousand gallons per hour was entering the drifts from a subterranean water table.

Case Study: Grouting in Fissured Rock

Published Year: 1960

  • Pumping costs at Cedar Bay Mine were becoming excessive, as new drifts were opened and total seepage into the mine increased.

Case Study: Sealing Sandstone to Permit Shaft Sinking

Published Year: 1960

  • In one of the deepest drilling operations in British coal mining history, plans called for the sinking of two 3,000-foot shafts, one to be used as a main coal-hoist shaft with skips, the other to house a conventional cage hoist.
