We are experienced in the monitoring of mine sites and excavations, and our geotechnical monitoring team have worked on numerous major projects. Based on state-of-the-art technology, our products are built to an accredited quality control system and designed to withstand the challenges of the most extreme environments.
Systems installed include:
Hope Downs 4, Western Australia
Geomotion have been commissioned to supply and install geotechnical instrumentation for the Waste Fines Storage Facility Project at HD4 DSP Pit.
The geotechnical monitoring system used the proven Vibrating Wire (VW) Technology on Piezometers and Pressure Cells running below ground conduit excavation along the pit bench attached to Load Sensing VW Node Dataloggers inside two Terminal Boxes located at the pit surface for remote monitoring.
Cape Preston, Western Australia
Citic Pacific Mining enlisted MCC to construct the main causeway linking the port with the main mine hub. The 70m wide causeway carries the services, acts as a service route for transportation of large plant and equipment, as well as carrying the Iron Ore to the port in a slurry form. The stability of the causeway is of critical importance.
Newman Hub, Western Australia
As part of the Rapid Growth Project 4 (RGP4), a dual trail load out structure and stockpile were constructed in the Newman Hub, by the Mount Whaleback ore body. In order to gain the neccessary information to reduce conservatism in future designs, MPD JV commissioned Geomotion Australia to oversee the installation of 105 vibrating wire oil filled pressure cells on the walls and roof of the structure.
Utah Point, Western Australia
The Port Hedland Port Authority commissioned Ertech to construct a multi-user iron ore stock yard as part of the Utah Point Berth upgrade. In order to monitor the consolidation of the soil below during loading of the stock piles, Geomotion have installed a series of settlement and profile monitoring sensors, along with piezometers to meaure the pore pressures. The data taken from these sensors will be compared with the Geotechnical report and used to allow faster loading of the stock piles.
Boddington Tailings Dam Trial Embankment, Western Australia
Boddington Gold Mine (BGM) is located about 130km south-east of Perth in Western Australia. The largest gold mine in the country, it is poised to become the highest producing mine once production ramps up over the next few years.
