Mining

Seismic Surveys provides vibration and overpressure monitoring for mining operations. We measure vibrations and overpressure caused by blasting and other mining activities for compliance in accordance with safe and regulatory limits to protect existing structures.  

Blast vibration and overpressure monitoring is an essential aspect of mining operations that helps to support the safety of third-party properties, comply with regulations, and optimize mining activities. By continuously monitoring and analyzing blast vibrations and overpressure, mining companies can identify potential issues and be proactive to minimize impacts to nearby structures and promote positive community relations.

Why Are Blast Vibration and Overpressure Monitoring Important for Mining?

Blast vibration and overpressure monitoring around the mine site is critical for protection of neighboring properties and regulatory compliance. We install a monitoring system with vibration and overpressure sensors in strategic locations around the site to measure ground and airborne effects transmitted to nearby properties from mining activity. The sensors record the vibration and overpressure data, which can then be analyzed to demonstrate regulatory compliance and give the operator information to facilitate necessary adjustments to the blasting strategy.

Mining operations must comply with regulations related to blast vibration and overpressure limits. These regulations vary depending on the location and type of mining activity. Blast vibration and overpressure monitoring is essential for mining companies to comply with these regulations.

If vibration or overpressure levels from blasting or machinery exceed acceptable limits, mining companies may need to adjust the blasting strategy to minimize vibrations and overpressures for compliance. These data give the mining company the necessary information to make adjustments.
