Open – Cut Mining
Monitoring solutions have a great impact in an open-cut mining environment where slope failures are of great risk. A slope failure can have a devastating effect, especially when occurring without warning. They can destroy valuable equipment and assets, halt production and are a risk to human injury and possible loss of life. With the assistance of monitoring, our customers are able to monitor and detect wall movement, understand when it becomes a problem, and predict when a slope failure is likely to occur. If the risk of failure is understood, a decision can be made.
Designed as a long-term, background monitoring tool, the GMS (Geotech Monitoring Station) monitors vast mine areas for long periods of time of many months to many years. It specialises in background monitoring in open cut pits and highly vegetated slopes, and detecting and measuring deformation on tailings dams, dumps and cuttings.Take a look
An effective monitoring tool for detecting and monitoring surface movement, the GroundProbe InSAR Service, in partnership with 3vGeomatics (3vG), provides monitoring capabilities complementary to GroundProbe’s ground-based radar suite. The inherent features of satellite and ground-based radars complement each other, allowing for an integrated, multi-source monitoring solution.Take a look
Designed to detect new risks and hazards, the SSR-SARx monitors areas from long ranges with the highest resolution. A 2D Synthetic Aperture Radar, the SSR-SARx effectively images walls, forming high resolution targets coupled with a longer integration time, aiming to pick up small movements that occur over many months.Take a look
Designed to detect new risks and hazards, the SSR-FX covers vast mine areas for longer periods to provide geotechnical peace of mind. A 2D Real Aperture Radar, the SSR-FX monitors broad areas through a thin vertical stripe that quickly sweeps around the wall of the mine site, left to right, detecting hotspots of movement, even in areas that are not critical to current mine operations.Take a look
Designed to critically monitor known movements that pose a potential or immediate threat to the safety or productivity of mining operations, the SSR-XT monitors slope movements within a targeted area. A 3D Real Aperture Radar, its fine pencil beam scans in a raster pattern to provide full 3D imaging, guaranteeing every targeted area of concern is monitored in real time.Take a look
