Prop Division

During 2005, Geo Stott opened a temporary mine roof support prop manufacturing plant. This plant produces anywhere between 10,000 to 15,000 mining props per month for MPROPS (PTY) Ltd, who specialise in on-going technological development of steel mechanical props for use as TEMPORARY SUPPORT IN HARDROCK MINING OPERATIONS.
