Elongate Support

Generally used in shallower gold and platinum mines where conditions allow. Elongate support can vary from basic mine poles, which allow minimal deformation to more sophisticated designs of pencil props, Saturn props and other higher yielding elongates, with design yielding of up to 400mm and beyond.
