Shallow land cover over old underground workings at Kamptee Colliery has led to the development of ground collapse, with three crown hole subsidences recorded in a 10 year period. As the land above the workings has been developed, it was considered that for safety purposes areas with less than 15 m of competent rock should be established. The paper discusses the Multi-electrode Resistivity Imaging (RI) and Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) undertaken over an area of 800 m • 200 m, which indicated that where a competent cover was present it was very thin.
