Elexon Mining Systems for Wireless In-Ground Monitoring

GEO4SIGHT: WIRELESS SUBSURFACE MONITORING SYSTEM

The Cave Tracker System is a world-first technology that enables monitoring of ore movement while it is still in the cave. This ability provides near real-time data to allow mine operators to analyse the behaviour of caves and actively manage cave propagation and extraction.

The Cave Tracker System is in an advanced prototype stage and has been validated in two cave mines. The results are highly encouraging and the measured data is already being used to complete the mine’s understanding of what is happening in the cave.

NETWORKED SMART MARKER SYSTEM:

MINE SCALE TRIAL

Two mine scale trials were conducted to assess the reliability of wireless data transmission through rock and the ability to get qualitative subsurface deformation measurements.

The System performed successfully fulfilling both objectives of the trials and allowing the installation procedures, data acquisition and management and communication protocols to be tested and validated.

COLLABORATION BRINGS WIDE-RANGING BENEFITS

This video, produced by CSIRO, talks about the collaboration between CSIRO and Elexon Mining in delivering world-class applied research in mining, mineral processing and beyond.
