Excavation of mines and tunnels

Excavation of mines and tunnels

In a highly complex activity like mine construction, concrete is the ideal support for building load-bearing structures, pavements, canals, rocks and ducts owing to its enormous flexibility  of use and highly resistance nature. This material also perfectly lends itself to supporting tunnels excavated in fragile rocks, to give the rock stability, to fill in cracks and holes and to cover the surface to prevent the infiltration of water. Using concrete as a cover is a method above all employed in the construction of tunnels with more complex structures and large cross-sections. Carmix self loading concrete mixer machines prove to be a fundamental partner in all geological conditions for tackling the bumpiest ground and reaching the most difficult areas.
