2 Hollow Injectable Cablebolts Surface Control – a critical component of safety In 2013, there were 265 injuries due to roof and rib failures Rib falls injuries, 75% result in lost time, account for 25% of ground fall accidents Most rib injuries and fatalities occur at depths >700 ft

13 Displacement Performance at Equal Load FLEXKNOT vs Welded Mesh or Standard Farm Fence

14 Hollow Injectable Cablebolts Remedial work over primary bolts

15 Hollow Injectable Cablebolts

16 Primary mesh applications

17 Highwall stabilization system

18 Hollow Injectable Cablebolts Mesh Type (5’ X 15’ sheets) Aperture, (inch x inch) Weight, (lbs ) Welded Wire Mesh - 4 gauge 4 x Welded Wire Mesh - 6 gauge 4 x Welded Wire Mesh - 8 gauge 4 x Welded Wire Mesh – 10 gauge 4 x FlexKnot TM x FlexKnot TM x Higher Strength + Lower Weight Easier Material Handling

19 Hollow Injectable Cablebolts Summary Ground and rib fall accidents continue to plague the mining industry > mesh is a proven solution FlexKnotFlexKnot mesh was specifically designed for mining applications > higher strength, lighter, stiffer and corrosion protected Rolled mesh can reduce bolting cycle times and the new Fletcher handling system is being full-scale tested > improved ergonomics ~ faster cycle Rib control, Remedial work and Highwall stabilization have already proven to provide total surface control and easier to install > reduce total costs

20 Hollow Injectable Cablebolts We could sure use some FlexKnot between these timbers
