New open-pit mining technology can predict landslides up to 15 days in advance.
1 Minute read
This is a robust method based on comprehensive mathematical, scalable modelling of forces, motion and interactions of particles. It allows for the prediction of landslides up to 15 days in advance. It uses standard data collected for monitoring open-pit mines.
Current methods of landslide predication use data from ground-based radar and / or X-ray sensors. They can only give limited notice of an event occurring, enough time for personnel evacuation but not always for equipment evacuation.
This technology has been robust across various datasets. The method now requires further validation and software development.
