GroundProbe is hosting a series of webinars for our clients and the broader geotechnical community. Our upcoming webinar will focus on our latest developments to our GML technology and its applications for in-cycle mining development reconciliation and guidance.
Please register for the webinar as soon as possible as participation spaces are limited.
Mining development globally uses the common design, construct, verify and rework methodology. This methodology typically requires survey verification of the as-built result against the design for each stage of the excavation and ground support construction. However, due to the time consuming and manual intensive process of verifying the construction, many development headings are completed solely based on the operator’s experience. This often results in costly over or under excavation.
Leveraging the latest in high-density LiDAR technology, Artificial Intelligence and high-speed computing can provide the ability for development crews to receive real-time feedback on their excavation and ground support construction. This allows them to minimise overbreak and reduce material usage. This has the potential to significantly increase their efficiency, quality of installed reinforcement and reduce the costs of construction.
This webinar will also present the results from the use of this technology in major underground mining projects, to showcase the significant cost savings achieved from reducing overbreak, underbreak, and shotcrete usage.
