Problem Solving

The uncontrollable penetration of ground water into or through geological structures, shaft excavations and the like can be one of the most dangerous, difficult, annoying and costly problems faced by engineers, owners and operators of mines and tunnels.

Realising the severity of problems associated with uncontrollable water inflows and the limitations of available technology, the Sovereign Group embarked on a Research and Development programme.

Sovereign’s unique water sealing technology is now available in North America through the Sovereign – Thyssen joint venture. This allows each company to use the proprietary products and methods of the other in order to develop new methods for solving difficult problems in the mining industry.
