Using 3D scanning systems based on vision and laser techniques to produce accurate geotechnical information of both surface and underground mines, our innovative sensing and monitoring technologies are improving mine safety.
High resolution surface scanning
Detailed understanding of a mine’s geology, including changes during excavation, is one of the most critical issues for mining companies, whether they’re operating open-cut or underground mines.
Technologies to support the generation of 3D surface models are needed for both geotechnical and resource characterisation applications.
The fine art of geosceince
Our Mining Geoscience Team works closely with the mining industry to provide geo-characterisation sensing, monitoring, modelling and analysis solutions.
Applications include resource characterisation, geotechnical analysis, and environmental impact and vulnerability assessment.
We pioneered the use of photogrammetric systems for rock mass characterisation and slope-stability assessment, geophysical logging and microseismic monitoring for the Australian mining industry.
We continue to be a leading provider of software and hardware to geologists, geotechnical and blast engineers and surveyors.
The work is underpinned by deep experience with 2D and 3D imaging systems, geophysical sensing and imaging technologies.
We have successfully patented and commercialised innovative 3D sensor systems and provide consulting services and design studies for large-scale imaging system deployments.
Integration of these technologies into mining processes and systems are helping the industry improve working conditions and move towards Zero Harm and our success has led to numerous long-term commercial partnerships.
