Open cast mine slope monitoring


Instrumentation and monitoring play an important role in all types of mining to ensure safety, control operations, verify design, measure natural events, ensure compliance, control and reduce costs and increase knowledge for future operation.

In the case of the open-cast mines, it is very important to monitor slope stability, ground movement and groundwater levels in order to control and develop operational practice to eliminate problems caused by ground movements or failure of surrounding structures.

In the case of underground mining works, ground movement is one of the most significant threats to the safety and continued operations, as it can lead to rock falls, tunnel collapses and other catastrophic events.
