Join us on Wednesday, November 20th at Tailings and Mine Waste 2019 in Vancouver (BC, CA) to hear Dr. Giacomo Falorni’s presentation “InSAR as a Complementary Technology for Monitoring Programs of Tailings Storage Facilities and Waste Piles.”
Learn how InSAR can be part of comprehensive Mine Risk Management Programs. These programs require comprehensive knowledge of structural integrity within large assets such as tailings storage facilities and waste piles. Satellite InSAR is becoming increasingly popular as a surface deformation monitoring tool for mine sites due to its ability to cover an entire operation, without the need for any on-site equipment or support. Two key features of InSAR, the ability to detect early warnings of change in movement patterns over an entire mine site and to provide an overview of ground deformation beyond the limits of localized instrumentation and capture the actual extent of the unstable area, make it a very valuable tool.
Not only does InSAR provide millimetric precision of surface deformation, but new developments further exploit the InSAR outputs to provide acceleration profiles, algorithmic trend-variation detection, surface change detection, and tailings water position detection.
Come visit our booth #19 after the presentation to get more detailed insights into the technology.
