Monitoring and maintenance are essential components of successful mine site rehabilitation programs.

Monitoring should be in place in order to assess early rehabilitation success, reveal the need for any remedial actions and determine whether rehabilitation is likely to meet long term goals and mine closure criteria. The ongoing evaluation and monitoring are essential to better understanding rehabilitation practices and how to guide them towards success.

Once germination is achieved, a combination of multispectral and thermal imaging cameras and sensors, along with NDVI, OSAVI, DSM and NDRE allow us to see many different analytical layers which are optimal in sensing development. We can analyse these layers for a range of indications such as areas that are under heat and drought stress, plant height and health and the nitrogen and chlorophyll content of plants. We are able to monitor the sowing quality, growth rate, the counted number and planned number of plants while also undertaking plant disease analysis and pest detection, allowing us to maximise growth efficiency.

  • Access to advanced analytics for more accurate data.
  • Allows for better management and faster, more informed decision making.
  • Provides an accurate, high resolution archival record of every inch of your site.
  • Allows for real time monitoring.

Process

Spraygrass Solution Rehabilitation Performance Monitoring Customised Solution 1
  • Initial Inspection A pre-site inspection is undertaken by key personnel. The drone is deployed to map a 3D model of the proposed work site to accurately measure the area size of a site, complete with elevation, NDVI and orthomosaic layers.
Spraygrass Solution Rehabilitation Performance Monitoring Initial Inspection 2
  • Customised Solution Once data has been collected, SGA personnel spend considerable time reviewing the data. Solutions and recommendations are tailored based on the data collected and objectives of the project to ensure long-term success.
Spraygrass Solution Rehabilitation Performance Monitoring Post Project Monitoring 3
  • Post Project Monitoring A range of multispectral and thermal imaging cameras and sensors allow us to monitor and assess the progress of revegetation, allowing for early identification and mitigation.
