Two mine scale trials were conducted to asses 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.
This video, produced by CSIRO, talks about the project that Elexon Mining is working on with its partners.
Elexon Mining has developed Geo4Sight; a wireless subsurface monitoring system for challenging geotechnical environments where the use of cabled monitoring systems is impossible, impractical or unreliable.
Geo4Sight is initially offered as two distinct solutions:
