Using the best satellite imagery technology currently has to offer, Swift Geospatial can assist with cost-effective, time-saving strategies, including disaster prevention. In this article we focus on monitoring for mine management and how our high quality imagery empowers one not only for decision making purposes; but also to detect - with immediate effect - if any risks or triggers are activated as and when they happen.
Monitoring your mine’s Tailings Storage Facility (TSF) is not merely a legal requirement, but a life or death responsibility. After all, the horrific (and fairly recent) case studies of TSF mismanagement catastrophes bear witness to the paramount importance thereof. Enter Swift Geospatial’s innovative methodology for TSF monitoring. Using the latest, most streamlined, high resolution and cloud-free satellite imagery technology available to date; time-savvy mining managers may remotely check their tailings dam status on a weekly basis.
With a global move to tighten the current regulations around mine tailings monitoring and disaster prevention, mining houses are searching for methods to assist in a proactive monitoring solution which not only provide insight into the tailing dams but can greatly assist the general mine manager in a range of ongoing monitoring aspects.
