The success of cable bolts for mine ground control have been well documented in papers presented at this conference too numerous to reference. Cable bolts have proven effective over the years mainly utilized in the form of supplemental support. Some limited work has been conducted on the use of cable bolts as primary support This work has been mainly confined to the West and the bolts utilized were of a non- tensioned type MSHA requirements for primary support have been that the bolt system he tensioned or if non-tensioned, then fully encapsulated with resin. Many operators are now interested in using cable bolts as primary support Further, despite the enormous success of cable bolts, there have been questions raised about the longevity and corrosion characteristics of the cable itself particularly for long tern applications. To improve the corrosion characteristics of cable bolts, galvanized cable has been used for some applications However. although improving the corrosion resistance of cable, galvanized cable for mine ground control does not provide complete protection under certain types of situations and mine environments. Realizing a need for a cable bolt that can be used for primary support and provides consistent installed tension, complete corrosion protection, and a fast installation, Keystone Mining Services. LLC (KMS), an affiliate of Jennmar Corporation, has developed the INSTáL CableOx system. This paper will detail the development and specifics of this system including two underground case studies
