Abstract: The overall view of the research being conducted at Impala platinum was to improve pillar design techniques through a rock testing programme, underground instrumentation and back analysis. The laboratory rock testing programme has provided a useful insight into pillar behaviour showing that even at a width to height ratio around 5; the pillar can have a negative post failure characteristic. Using Flac to reproduce the laboratory stress strain curves for the width to height tests has, so far, not proved to be successful
