 Mining

 

The demand for mineral resources is pushing mining exploration and operations into deeper and more complex operations, involving the mobilisation of larger rock volumes an a higher risk of catastrophic failure around pre-existing excavations, highly-stressed geological structures, infrastructure or subsidence around populated areas. Seismic monitoring provides a unique tool for imaging the the fracturing process and changes in the rock mass associated to the stress changes induced by mining operations facilitating a safer, more efficient and sustainable operation. 

 

Seismic monitoring of mining operationsSeismic monitoring of mining operations

ASC offers a  range of services and products applying the techniques of seismology to the imaging of fracturing and deformation processes associated with mining operations:

  • Design, analysis and optimisation of seismic monitoring networks
  • Characterisation of induced and mobilised fracture networks from the analysis of seismic catalogues
  • Automated real-time event detection, location and processing with InSite seismic processing software
  • QC and reprocessing of third-party seismic data
  • Provision of integrated seismic monitoring networks including wireless surface and underground seismic stations, remote check systems and automated processing
  • Validation of predictive geomechanical models
  • Tomographic imaging
