Particles coated with a solid, fusible resin are placed in a subterranean formation. At formation conditions, the resin first melts or softens, and then cures to an insoluble, infusible state. This bonds the particles together forming a permeable, self-sustaining structure in or adjacent the formation. One preferred particle for use in the practice of this invention is a glass bead substrate with an outer layer composed of a solid, fusible, thermosetting resin.
