Mining

Maximise productivity, protect the local environment

Mining infrastructure failures are highly disruptive, costly, sometimes dangerous, harmful to the local environment and reputationally damaging.  Monitor the condition of tailings dams, water storage facilities, stockpiles, slopes and mining infrastructure regularly in a non-disruptive way. Use good engineering insight to identify defects before they become visually apparent for cost-effective proactive maintenance and to avoid failures.

Minimise risk

Don’t make it on to the news for the wrong reasons. Keep failures at bay with effective asset monitoring combined with engineering insight.

Discover issues earlier

Waiting until defects become visually apparent makes them costlier and more disruptive to repair. Discover them before you can see them and repair them quickly and proactively.

Travel back in time

Have we invented time travel? Not quite, but regular condition data by satellite of your mining assets since 2014 probably already exists. Use them to help identify those perennial problems or to predict future trends.

Access remote or hazardous areas

Keep workers safe and avoid operational disruption by obtaining performance data remotely. Avoid long journeys to remote areas too, minimising your carbon footprint.

Cover all your mines

Obtain condition data and engineering insight across all your mines at the press of a button. There is no need to physically visit every square metre on a regular basis.

Be objective

Visual inspections are notoriously subjective but satellites aren’t. Let all your mines be assessed by one, consistent engineering method and set of condition criteria.

Focus your resources

Budgets are tight so focus those precious resources on sites identified by satellite data for proactive repair or further detailed investigation. 

Maximise productivity

Assessing mining asset condition regularly with minimum disruption leads to proactive maintenance, all of which maximises productivity in both the short and long term.

Design efficiently

We apply advanced engineering analysis methods to produce designed solutions to remediate defects cleverly and cost-effectively.
