Dams & Tailings Dam Monitoring Solutions
The collapse of any dam or tailings dam can result in catastrophic loss of life and cause severe environmental, social, and economic impacts. GroundProbe has a range of tailored solutions for real-time predictive and reactive monitoring of dams and tailing dams to detect any movement or instability, ensuring the safety of mines and surrounding communities.
Whether the movement is known or unknown, fast-moving or gradual, in motion, or about to move, GroundProbe has a solution to suit all needs. Discover our extensive range of monitoring solutions below.
With a quick and all-encompassing scan, the SSR-Omni is designed to detect hotspots of movement across broad tailings dams. It is a rotational 2D Real Aperture Radar (RAR) capable of monitoring mine sites with 360° scan coverage as well as the highest precision and resolution.LEIA MAIS
The GroundProbe InSAR Service, in partnership with 3vGeomatics (3vG), is an effective tool for monitoring and detecting surface movement. It uses satellite-based radars which conduct scans every time they pass over the mine site.LEIA MAIS
Designed to identify long-range risks and hazards, the SSR-SARx is a long-range and high-resolution system for the monitoring of tailings dams. The SSR-SARx is a 2D Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) designed to detect even the smallest of movements over long periods of time.LEIA MAIS
The SSR-FX is a dam monitoring system designed to provide geotechnical peace of mind. An expert tool for risk and hazard identification, the SSR-FX is a 2D Real Aperture Radar (RAR) specialising in detecting movement across vast mine sites over a long period of time, even in non-critical areas.LEIA MAIS
Leading Dam & Tailing Dam Technology
MITIGATE THE RISK OF DAM & TAILING DAM FAILURES
Dams and tailing dams both require ongoing maintenance and monitoring to ensure sufficient drainage and a stable structure for mining waste. Often, the quick construction of tailing dams and other dams can result in issues such as leakages and rock movement over time. However, the collapse of such significant infrastructure can cause destruction to wildlife, mining equipment, workers, nearby communities and more.
At GroundProbe, our innovative and industry-leading dam and tailing dam monitoring technology aim to reduce the risk of dam failures and prevent the catastrophic failure of tailings and dam storage facilities through consistent geotechnical monitoring over time. This equips decision-makers with real-time data and historical geotechnical information that helps them to detect and identify potential problems before they occur and mitigate the risks associated with these structures.
Real-time monitoring solutions provide critical information on the structure and stability of dams and tailing dams, allowing companies to take proactive measures to address potential problems before they occur. This results in reduced downtime, lower costs, resource efficiency and improved sustainability of operations. GroundProbe’s dam and tailing dam monitoring solutions also help meet regulatory requirements, assisting companies in employing responsible environmental management practices while adhering to national policies around appropriate tailing dam management and waste across the globe.
