Operations often dispose of their tailings into large damns built out of waste rock from the mine. Although the density of the slurry is often controlled, little other monitoring takes place. This allows for the potential of these earthen dams to fail with little to no notice.
Goals and Objectives
Improve tailings dam and other storage facility wall stability.
Hardware: sensors; Software: analytics, data management software, AI; Innovation accelerators: IoT; 3rd Platform technologies: cloud
Use Case Summary
Monitor subtle changes observed to plan and mitigate any containment failures.
