TRE Altamira is at Tailings and Mine Waste 2022 to present InSAR for Mining
Ground instabilities pose many challenges to mining sites. Whether they affect slopes, tailings storage facilities, or waste piles, the early identification and ongoing monitoring of unstable areas is key to ensure the continuity and safety of operations, as well as timely inspections and maintenance. In fact, strategic, frequent monitoring of ground stability is essential to assure the timely detection of precursors to failures.
Thanks to their sensitivity to subtle displacement, wide-area coverage, and remote-sensing capabilities, TRE Altamira’s InSAR ongoing monitoring services are helping engineers and asset owners in the mining industry in the early identification of ground risk.
By accessing satellite imagery archives back to 1992, experts are able to enhance geotechnical back analysis by identifying patterns of unstable behaviour to better understand the cause of the displacement.
Satellite InSAR technology provides a clear understanding of the ground behavior when used in conjunction with complementary conventional ground-based surveying instrumentation.
What are the benefits of InSAR?
Spatially dense results with millimetric precision
Non-invasive and scalable technique
InSAR is a remote sensing technology and provides accurate displacement measurements over individual assets as well as entire countries/continents.
