Ground Penetrating Radar in Mining
Mining professionals rely on GSSI ground penetrating radar to aid in determining mining safety, establishing bedrock depth, mapping sand and gravel deposits, ascertain rock quality, in addition to mineral exploration.
Ground Penetrating Radar to Determine Mine Safety
Mining professionals use ground penetrating radar to accurately locate underground structures before drilling, blasting or carrying face operations. Ground penetrating radar is instrumental in helping to identify overhead separations in order to prevent ceiling collapses. In deep mine applications, ground penetrating radar is invaluable for identifying geologic features that may be potential areas for rock bursts, such as fractures, shear zones and faults.
Ground Penetrating Radar in Mineral Exploration
Mining professionals use ground penetrating radar for mineral exploration in igneous and metamorphic rocks, such as granitic pegmatite, to locate hydrothermal features including cavities and vugs.
Maximize Salt Yield with GPR
Ground penetrating radar is used in salt mining applications to maximize yield. GSSI GPR allows miners to navigate continuous mining machines by way of imagining the salt/shale interface.
