PYBAR has recently completed a unique shotcreting project for Mancala`s Fossey Mine located in Tasmania. The project was to create a ‘plug’ which would hold back a considerable amount of water in the mine. This particular type of ‘plug’ has never been completed in Australia and only the third time in the world.

The project commenced immediately and was completed within 10 days due to PYBAR’s ability to mobilise straight away. PYBAR was chosen for the contract due a referral from a former client who was on site in Tasmania when the issue was discussed. A concrete pour could not be used as it would not seal and be able to be cast in the manner required by the engineers, creating structural deficiencies. PYBAR had to work within the minimal time due to water build-up to successfully complete this project.

“The team from PYBAR did a very difficult job in poor conditions and completed it well. Their competence, attitude and work ethic are a credit to PYBAR” states Pat Ball, the Underground Manager at Fossey Mine.
