One of the key challenges facing the mining sector is the industry-wide initiative to implement the most effective and efficient methods for monitoring mine sites. New advancements in monitoring technology allow mining companies to access a suite of cutting-edge monitoring tools designed to detect and warn of changes in key geotechnical parameters. But with such a wide array of monitoring techniques on the market, questions such as where, when and how these technologies should be used still remain.


Join Terra Insights' Heather Holden and Adrian Jonson for an on-demand webinar aimed to help mining owners, operators and engineers understand the advantages and disadvantages of the available technologies in order to build robust monitoring systems that comply with evolving regulatory standards.


Key takeaways from this webinar:  

  • Common challenges stakeholders face while monitoring mine sites
  • A thorough review of InSAR's position in the sector and why its high precision and wide coverage make it a necessary tool in the planning and operation of mine sites
  • An explanation of how conventional risk monitoring techniques like ground instrumentation, compare to InSAR and a discussion around how the two can be used as complementary technologies at mining sites
  • Real-world case studies from the mining industry where InSAR was used in conjunction with geotechnical instrumentation
