Photogrammetry software for effective construction and mining progress monitoring

Guaranteed on-time and on-budget ore and waste production.

Progress monitoring, a critical tool for successful construction and mining progress control, provides information on the present state of construction or mining, which can then be compared with the original plan. The comparison can be used in decision-making to control variations in project performance. However, current methods for acquiring and updating information on the progress of a project are inadequate for monitoring project progress effectively due to their high computational processing, cost and time requirements. Photogrammetry has the potential to provide information about construction and mining progress more efficiently, rapidly, and cost-effectively.

Successful project management requires monitoring project progress and comparing it with the originally planned schedule by identifying possible deviations between the actual and the expected project status. The first requirement for effective progress monitoring is the collection of large amounts of spatial data in a rapid and accurate manner. However, although the progress monitoring process, which includes measuring and managing project information during the construction / mining phase, is an important [read more]

Tacmin's survey solution assigned to remote project in Africa

XSTOL - the ultimate utility aircraft – cargo combined with aerial surveys

Servicing open-pit mining clients on remote locations in Africa is something that the Tacmin team has grown accustomed to. With almost two decades of experience in solutions and improvement assignments, Tacmin’s recent expansion into mine survey solutions are no different.

The main objective of Tacmin’s subsidiary is to act as the data collection arm of Tacmin Madini, with the specific intention to provide our customers with solutions which are founded on vast accurate and reliable aerial collected data. This periodic aerial solution includes month-end surveys, geological surveys, crisis prevention surveys and environmental surveys. Aforesaid which are delivered to clients as ortho-photos, maps, DTMs, volumetric calculations, models and point-cloud data.

On this mine, Tacmin was able to combine weekly aerial data collections with cargo transfers between the mine and a main city centre, enabling them to keep the cost of aerial data collection to a minimum. The Tacmin group of companies are passionate about delivering solutions with the specific focus to assist with improvement of operations and the environment.
Tacmin experts fully equipped with all the resources to deliver the data, support and know-how customers need.

Independent aerial data collection of vast areas, conversion, analysis and integration into industry recognised mine engineering software.

Their expansion into aerial survey technology backed by considerable experience gained in all aspects associated with open-pit mines and environmental improvement and their undisputable track record thereof, gave cause to Tacmin adopting a strategy to deliver on:
  • A specialised aerial surveying and mine engineering service which is unmatched by aerial surveying companies
  • Provide a service with improved accuracy – as good as, or better than the current services available to the industry;
  • Provide a price that is more affordable than the current service providers
  • Submission of processed results within 3 days from date of survey

Tacmin experts assist with on-time extraction of first ore

Slope, design and mine plan conformance monitoring

The main objective of this operational improvement assignment was focused on assisting the client to get mining production back on target in anticipation to not miss their Transnet allocation. At this stage the mining contractor had fallen 3 months behind on waste while target ore was nowhere in sight.

With a sub-outcrop of 60 meters below surface and a 20 meter clay layer between hard rock formations, conventional land surveys were inadequate to track mine design and planning conformance. Coupled with vigorous geotechnical investigation and ongoing slope geometry, Tacmin experts re-engineered the pit, reduced the size of the boxcut, re-designed in-pit ramps and re-positioned waste dumps.

Through consistent crisis prevention surveys of all mining aspects based upon considerable dense point cloud data, Tacmin experts could track progress and with timeous re-engineering were able to improve production and guide the mining contractor to extract first ore on time.

The mine is currently in steady state mining and has since never failed to achieve production targets.
