Tailings Pond Site Monitoring

Tailings Pond Site Monitoring encompasses several different applications from dam safety, dam wall and slope stability, tailings accumulations and water level gauging, to monitoring of water quality parameters, and the on-site weather conditions and their impacts.

5 Ways Wireless Monitoring Systems Improve the Safety of Tailings Dams

1.

Improves knowledge of the most critical potential failure mechanisms

2.

Provides a sound basis for the establishment and implementation of the proper response in case of a failure involving human hazards

3.

Serves as a tool for designing the dam’s growth

4.

Provides long-term monitoring with very little maintenance

5.

Detects situations that are likely to trigger a failure of the dam

Tailings pond sites need to be monitored accurately and continuously to mitigate their impacts and prevent dangers associated with their operation.  The mining sector is faced with the challenge of finding the best instrumentation and methods to carry out this monitoring work.  Failure to correctly assess these situations can result in huge problems for the mining companies, the surrounding communities, and the larger environment. Hoskin Scientific, and the wide range of suppliers we represent, offers instrumentation and expertise to address all of these areas of concern and offer monitoring solutions for the mining industry.
