TSF – Dam Tailing Facilities Monitoring
Using sophisticated technology, remote sensing is indeed the most cost-effective, time-saving strategy for the monitoring of all mines.
The Future of Mine Monitoring – Remote Sensing & Satellite Imagery
Explore With Vision
The sector of mineral exploration and extraction is inherently spatial and can make great use of GIS to reduce risk and reduce costs associated with providing relevant parties with information to facilitate timely decision making. Most mines tend to cover vast expanses of land, managers would then require access to relevant data of location-based information to guide their operation.
The tasks of mine management are ideally suited for geographic information system (GIS) technology. GIS is a versatile tool for gathering, storing, and accessing geographic information quickly and easily. Swift Geospatial are available to create a solution based on your requirements within the mining industry, including mine management, mine exploration and mine rehabilitation.
The Importance Of Tailings Dam Monitoring
Mining organisations are implementing modern and technological efficient methods of tailings dam monitoring. This provides greater visibility of conditions across mine tailings storage facilities. This is becoming increasingly important with governments and regulators intensifying their scrutiny of the current standards.

How it Works
Swift Geospatial is in a unique position via access to the latest high resolution satellite imagery which when combined with GIS solutions from volumetrics (3D terrain data) to encroachment detection.
Mining professionals use GIS to increase productivity and save costs. Engineers and operations staff use GIS for facility planning applications, helping miners keep track of existing infrastructure and integrating up-to-date information with the mine plan. Facility managers also use GIS to incorporate recent survey data with block models or design data from other software packages.
Simply put, there is no component of the mine that cannot be better managed with GIS technology.
The above and below imagery showcases the importance of active monitoring of a mine. Having an eye in the sky combined with near real time analytics can aid in decision support and management. Above is a general overview of the changes in broad scale mine monitoring. Further and more concise GIS monitoring solutions will provide greater data in the specific fields of encroachment, volumetrics and mine rehabilitation.
