Geophysical Monitoring of Tailings Dams Workshop

March 27-29, 2023


The Geophysical Monitoring of Tailings Dams workshop, hosted by the Brazilian Society of Geophysics (SBGf) is being held online from March 27-29.

We are excited to be presenting at this conference, showcasing a customer case study that utilizes our structural health monitoring solution. Be sure to attend this session and don’t hesitate to reach out to our team with any questions you may have.

Real-time integrated tailings dam monitoring at Niobium Tailings Dam, Brazil

Abstract: Monitoring tailings dams is critical to ensuring structural integrity and maintaining the safety of the site and local communities. There are multiple risks associated with tailings dams and therefore, a holistic monitoring system is required to provide real-time updates on any changes or hazards. We present a monitoring solution incorporating (micro-)seismic, strong motion (peak ground motions), and interferometric monitoring. Data is delivered in real-time through a web-based portal accessible by users at any time, anywhere. Tailored alerts are sent in response to any significant vibrations or changes that can be used to initiate actions on site. We will show the results and use of the system currently monitoring the deconstruction of a CMOC tailings dam near Catalão, Goiás, Brazil.
