We consider plasmon resonances and cloaking for the elastostatic system in R3 via the spectral theory of the Neumann-Poincaré operator. We first derive the full spectral properties of the Neumann-Poincaré operator for the 3D elastostatic systemin the spherical geometry. The spectral result is of significant interest for its own sake, and serves as a highly nontrivial extension of the corresponding 2D study in . The derivation of the spectral result in 3D involves much more complicated and subtle calculations and arguments than that for the 2D case. Then we consider a 3D plasmonic structure in elastostatics which takes a general core-shell-matrix form with the metamaterial located in the shell. Using the obtained spectral result, we provide an accurate characterisation of the anomalous localised resonance and cloaking associated to such a plasmonic structure.
