Posted on 30.06.2020 - updated on: 16.04.2024

June 30th 2020


Please see below an update of the progress on some activities we had previously issued a communicate about.


Following the drilling program commenced in late 2019, and subsequent ducting works completed earlier this year, we are now preparing to complete the installation of extensometers in the mine workings. We are planning that the works will take place week commencing July 6th. All going well the work will take about one week and upon completion of the commissioning of the equipment, this will see the same standard of monitoring system in place for the R179 as has already been installed along the LP4900.


The final grading and landscaping of the area of the September 2018 subsidence event has now been completed with remediation works now fully complete at that site.
