Mines

Retaining walls are crucial in the mining industry due to the nature of the work done.  Reinforcing mine retaining walls are built to provide durable support to tunnels; they prevent tunnels from being blocked by the collapse of a slope or falling material caused by the sudden movement of the earth.

Retaining walls have been used extensively in the mining industry in applications such as retaining structures at the interface between the coal bunkers and conveyor belts to retain differences in ground levels.
