This paper presents results from field trials of two research projects concerned with new technologies for geo-sensing. The goal of the first project was to develop a "smart" roof bolter drill so that it could probe into roof rock to evaluate rock conditions. The goal of the second project was to modify an existing minewide monitoring system in a continuous mining operation so that the system could interface with geotechnical instruments to provide near real-time geo-sensing.
