Rio Tinto – Clermont Mine now Using Complete Slope Monitoring Solution from Softrock
26 September 2012
Rio Tinto’s Clermont Coal Mine in the Bowen Basin of Queensland joined the ranks of sites serviced by Softrock Solutions. Clermont Mine now automatically monitors the stability of their pit walls using Leica total stations driven by Leica GeoMoS software. Their setup includes automatic generation of alarms, emails and SMS messages from a comprehensive range of possible geotechnical or fault conditions. The staff also have access to the data through Softrock’s Quikslope 5 analysis and reporting software, which is an industry standard tool through which geotechnical staff can communicate their site stability messages.
