Open Pit Mines Stability, Slope Stability Radar


Slope stability radar is a relatively new technology and is improving the way mines manage and minimize the risks associated with slope instability, enabling the appropriate precautionary measures to be taken. This technology meets the requirements that a monitoring system should have regarding precision, area coverage and failure mode detection. It is reliable in a variety of conditions, operates in a safe mode not requiring personnel to work on or near instability, and does not obstruct mining operations. The radar is equipped with a wireless link which transmits data in real time so engineers can make immediate decisions without having to be near a potentially unstable slope and the radar is trailer mounted for easy relocation. A variety of displays for data interpretation are available including deformation maps, digital photographs for reference and plots of deformation over time of specific points on the wall face. Alarm thresholds can be set, and are based upon total deformation and deformation of an area over a time frame.
