Large Excavations

Large mines require large excavations and quality work is critical, so it pays to trust a team that gets it right first time.

Successful installation of static underground equipment such as crushers, rock breakers, conveyors and associated storage areas depends principally on the quality of the preceding excavation work and the related ground support. Unlike advancing a decline for truck haulage, large excavations are civil engineering projects, and require the same disciplines that pertain to sophisticated above ground constructions.


Because of the company’s total commitment to engineering excellence, RUC has been awarded a number of large projects within Australia and overseas. Excavations have been created for the installation of facilities such as crushing stations, ore bins, loading stations, hoists, workshops and pumping stations.

RUC understands that to ensure subsequent construction activities progress without delay, all work must be completed to a high degree of accuracy. Design tolerances are invariably tight, so supervisors demand rigorous adherence to the design plan, and constantly survey and review operations. Combined with the specialist ground support expertise that RUC brings to a project, the end product achieves full compliance to all specifications. It means that clients can enjoy the quality and schedule benefits that come from a project that is ‘right first time’.
