The primary sources of energy consist of coal, lignite, oil, natural gas, hydro power, nuclear power and wind power. The projected demand of coal in tenth and eleventh five year plans are 446.59 Tonnes (2006-07) and 620 Million Metric Tonnes (2011-12) respectively. Till now 63.7 per cent of energy-need of India are met by the coal sector. In this context, the production plan of coal has to be revised to meet the demand of our country. To reduce the gap between demand and supply we need to have a careful planning of existing mines as well as of new mines so that we can produce economic coal in difficult geo-mining conditions, day by day our mining horizon is shifting deeper, hence more strata related problems to be encountered and an application of high strength resisting support would be most important requisite in that circumstances. This paper deals with the technical suitability and economical viability of the resin boting as a system of support in a development Bord-&Pillar panel. A case study is discussed where it is applied with consideration of support efficacy and support cost.
