Sloughmeters are used in places where some caving or “sloughing” is expected. Things like monitoring the cave around a stope, or the collapse around an orepass. Our sloughmeters use solid anchors which bond with the grout in the borehole. Any ground failure will take the anchor with it, severing the circuit.

Complete with 10 anchor locations, our Sloughmeters are custom-manufactured to any length and configuration required by our customers.

SMART Cable Bolt | Mine Design Technologies Inc

By combining the support capabilities of a standard 7-strand cable bolt with a miniature 6-wire extensometer, the SMART (Stretch Measurement to Assess Reinforcement Tension) Cable was born. The stretch in the cable is determined via the integrated six-point extensometer, allowing the strain between the anchor points to be calculated.
