3D Laser Mapping Announces Mining Conference Programme

June 20, 2012 -- 3D Laser Mapping has published a programme of speakers for its forthcoming International Slope Monitoring Conference. Taking place on the 25th and 26th July 2012 in Mokopane, South Africa, the two day programme of events will include a key note speech from one of Anglo American’s Principal Surveyors, case study presentations by current users of laser monitoring system SiteMonitor and a paper on slope failure by 3D Laser Mapping’s Executive Chairman and founder Dr Graham Hunter. The conference will also provide hands on training sessions and the opportunity for delegates to network with peers.

Keynote speaker Huw Thomas, Principal Surveyor at Anglo American, has more than 20 years’ experience of mine surveying. He has held senior positions with a number of organisations, including Debswana Diamond Company and President Steyn Gold Mining Company, since graduating from Sheffield Hallam University (formerly Sheffield City Polytechnic). He has also gained an MSc in Mining Engineering from the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg.

The keynote presentation will be followed by case studies from current users of 3D Laser Mapping’s state of the art laser monitoring solution, SiteMonitor. A modular system that gives the user the ability to exploit the potential of laser scanning for measuring change and improving mine safety, SiteMonitor is typically used in open pit mines for the continuous or periodic stability monitoring of unstable high walls.

John Davis, Senior Developer at 3D Laser Mapping will give a presentation on the system’s capabilities and new features, and attendees will have a number of opportunities for hands on training, support and networking with peers. Day two of the conference features a demonstration of a SiteMonitor installation at Anglo American Platinum’s Mogalakwena mine and Dr Graham Hunter’s paper on ‘Rockfall as a Predictor of Slope Failure’.

The 2012 SiteMonitor User Conference is free to attend and a booking form and further information can be found at www.3dlasermapping.com on the ‘Conference’ page within the ‘News and Events’ section. http://www.3dlasermapping.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=category&layout=blog&id=57&Itemid=341
