For 30 years SCT Operations has been using the ANZI Strain Cell and the overcoring technique to determine the 3D in situ stress in rock. SCT's 3D stress measurement and analysis process characterises the 3-dimensional in situ environment with high confidence measurements made during the exploration and design stage, long before any underground excavations have started. This capability allows underground operations to be designed for safer, more effective and more reliable operations.
