Monitoring of rock movement for ground control initiative for the safety of existing surface features is a prime motto of any mining activity. It becomes a daunting task if the monitoring has to be done for inaccessible area from the surface. The multipoint borehole extensometer (MPBX) has been found very suitable in this regard. An extensometer should be selected on the basis of its intended use, the preciseness of measurement required, the anticipated range of deformation, and the details accompanying installation. In this paper a case study has been discussed here elaborating the modus operandi for the selection of compatible type of MPBX, according to the uses. Also, there is one case study presented depicting the real time monitoring of a coal mine constituted important surface features over under coal pillar extraction panel.
