This article is about the application of ground support strategies and techniques to "underground mining projects". For the article on general geotechnical design see Geotechnical Design.

Ground support is a set of techniques, elements and methods that enable the conservation or mobilization of a rockmass' intial strentgh in order to allow for self-supporting rock mass. The ultimate goal of this practice is to allow for mining to occur safely while maintaining the stability of created underground excavations.

In Ontario, ground support requirements are defined under the
