R2V Services for GIS and CAD Help Keep Miners Safe
In the mining industry, it’s necessary for geologists to map coal beds in order to provide mining companies with accurate information. This includes accurate mapping of old mines that may be located under or close to an active mine site. Knowing exactly where these old mines are located is important to miner safety. Old mines can be full of gas and water. It can be disastrous for an active mining project to inadvertently tap into one of these old mines. The new mine can rapidly become full of noxious gas or rapidly flooded with water causing injuries and loss of life.
