Leverage Satellite Imagery For Your Reporting

Environmental reporting & rehabilitation monitoring
By leveraging the latest cutting-edge satellite imagery technology, Geoimage works closely with mining organisations to assist in providing environmental reporting and rehabilitation monitoring. Our ongoing partnerships help streamline reporting processes for our clients within the mining industry. Find out below how your organisation can benefit.

Environmental Monitoring and Compliance

As mine sites continue to develop, monitoring both the natural environment and culturally sensitive localities is a key responsibility for all resource operations.

Quantifying and controlling these changes during construction and operation phases is often essential due to legislative reporting requirements. Accurate monitoring and reporting can also save time and money throughout subsequent rehabilitation stages. Using regularly captured imagery, Geoimage works closely with mining organisations to quantitatively track changes in natural (vegetation, fluvial, marine) and pre-existing man-made features. Geoimage can also assist with classifying overburden soil types from satellite imagery, and reporting on total areas covered by a given class.

Rehabilitation Monitoring

Site restoration returns disturbed land from mining activities to a stable, productive and sustainable state for both the local wildlife and surrounding communities. During the rehabilitation process, continual evidence-based monitoring and assessments are required to comply with government legislation for all mining leases. 

Satellite-derived spatial datasets assist in identifying and quantifying rehabilitation areas, regions of success and stress, and be used to assess change throughout project areas. Summaries of these compliance monitoring activities can then be combined with the evidence and support the completion of mining and rehabilitation compliance reports in a timely manner. 

Geoimage arranges satellite capture programs at various resolutions of a project area, on a high-frequency basis. Comparison of multi-date data can assist in identification of any landscape disturbances. Using sophisticated classification algorithms, spectral indices are analysed to identify where mine site pollution, including dust, has impacted a landscape. It is also possible to generate products which assess vegetation health and indicate stress, whether it be development associated or due to natural processes.
