Remote Sensing for Landform Stability Monitoring (Part 1) - Do You Want to Save Millions in Rehabilitation Costs?

Found in: News

Would you like to know how to have prevented erosion like this 10 years ago?

Would you like to know how to cost effectively minimise the risk of high cost erosion repairs?

Would you like to stop paying money into the Mine Rehabilitation Fund every year?

If you answered yes to any of these questions then remote sensing could be the answer for you….

Erosion is one of the leading causes of rehabilitation failure on mine sites and can be very expensive to repair. Failure to get sign off on completion criteria can also increase site operation costs through the requirement for ongoing annual payments to the government Mine Rehabilitation Fund.

It is much easier and cheaper to identify and fix areas of potential erosion during the early stages of landform construction, rather than 10 years after you have completed rehabilitation of a site. Remote sensing can be used at all stages of the landform construction and rehabilitation process to identify high risk areas for erosion and non-compliance with approved designs. Armed with this knowledge, you can choose to rectify high risk areas at minimum cost and reduce the long term risk of erosion and failure to meet completion criteria.

Stay tuned to find out how Astron can use remote sensing to help you with the construction and monitoring of landforms, and provide benefit to your outcome through reduced erosion repair costs and demonstrated achievement of completion criteria for landform stability.
