We can provide survey services for ongoing mining operations, but also for historic workings that may be re-opened or are in close (but unknown) proximity to new workings, and to help avoid exploration boreholes striking extant underground workings. Shafts, stopes, incline roadways and development driveways can be surveyed and/or set-out. Laser scanning of specific locations can assist with ore reserve calculations and pillar stress analysis. Over and underbreak during driveway development can be accurately measured and cost savings made by optimising the blast patterns and waste rock transport.
Ground movement monitoring for areas affected by historical coal or other mining operations can be provided by ground based, on the land and even satellite based methods.
