Mining Surveying FAQs

Here's some tips & frequently asked questions on how to find the right mining surveyor for your job

1. What does a mine surveyor do?

Mine surveyors are responsible for estimating the accurate measurement and recording of mine operations. Surveyors measure the distance, direction, and elevation of the site in order to determine relative positions of points on or beneath the surface of the earth. Mining surveyors are responsible for the surface and underground plans of an entire mine site. This is to ensure that adjacent mine activities do not accidentally connect, preventing the risk of flooding, contamination, and other safety hazards.

 

2. What is a mining survey?

A mining survey is the process of determining the accurate measurement of distance, elevation and direction of mine workings. This is to indicate regulations and ensure the safety of the workers on site. Details of the survey compiled and submitted by the mining surveyor to a relevant government agency.

 

3. What is the difference between open pit and underground mine surveys?

Underground surveying is the process of survey operations performed underground in connections with tunnelling, exploration and constructions in subterranean passageways. An underground survey is quite different from the usual surface surveys as the process requires different tools and methods in order to complete.

On the other hand, open pit surveying uses aerial photography tools such as LiDAR and aerial triangulation to analyse a property from the air. The process creates fast and efficient results without degrading accuracy. This is to have a three-dimensional image of the mine that can help surveyors measure the surface and delegate accurate data from the images their tools have captured.

 

4. How much does a mine survey cost on average?

Mining surveying costs about $165 per hour. However, this can still change depending on the size, shape and location of the mine. In some cases, tools such as drones and image censoring tools can also affect the cost of the survey.
