Innovative Mining Product Design 

Push In Paste Wall

The Push In Paste Wall is a prefabricated wall kit to assist in immediately walling off the mine stope, eliminating the need for paste development. The walls can be quickly assembled and adjusted to the height and length needed and can be assembled in a little over an hour

Project Vision & Approach

Safety and efficiency were the guiding principles for this project. The goal for our product engineers was to allow these walls to be quickly and safely assembled, eliminating the need for paste development and making the job safer and more cost-effective. 

Meshed screens attached with hessian & mesh are foldable, extendable, and can be bolted onto the walls to make up the height and width of the drive. Once secured, the stope can be filled quickly without paste development.
