AERIAL SURVEY SOLUTIONS

Aerial Survey Solutions for construction, tailings facilities, mining & reclamation

The services we provide are managed services but are conducted mainly together with service providers and/or suppliers. Fraser Alexander places a high focus on TSF safety and risk management thus creating a need for accurate data collection and reporting. Our survey solutions provide detailed geospatial data collection capabilities that are highly accurate, adopt advanced data processing and analytic methods, and can be delivered quickly.

At a minimum, this service offers Photogrammetry, LiDAR and Thermal Surveys. It allows Fraser Alexander to produce advanced visual outputs from the data to better complement and support existing operations. Some features include high resolution site and change analysis images, 3D models and digital twins.

Aerial survey solutions can be utilised for your construction, tailings facility, mining, reclamation and environmental projects.

CONVENTIONAL SOLUTIONS

Tailings Storage Facility Management

Fraser Alexander is an industry leader in Tailings Storage Facility (TSF) Management, specialising in mineral residue or tailings deposition. We focus on optimised and best-practice placement of mine residues to meet stringent safety, health and environmental design requirements.

Our focus on optimised and best-practice placement of mining residues adheres to international standards of health and safety, with environmental protection top-of-mind. That’s partly thanks to our tailings management and risk monitoring system, TORAS (Technical And Operational Risk Assessment System) – a result of constant innovation into safety and efficiency.

We have a deep understanding of the inner working of Tailings Storage Facilities (TSF). Such as how they behave based on grading, specific gravity and density conditions, as well as many other unique on-site attributes. These include production rate, lay of the land, TSF size, shape and climate.

To handle these aspects, we offer bespoke operational solutions that lower risk while meeting your design requirements. These solutions include Cyclone, Daywall, Spigot, Spraybar operations and other specialised equipment. Speak to one of our experts for more information.

CYCLONE SOLUTIONS

Cyclone Deposition got Tailings Storage Facility Construction

Fraser Alexander has vast experience in the Cyclone Deposition Method of Tailings Storage Facility construction. In addition to traditional onwall cyclones, our enhanced Self-Propelled Cyclone Unit (SPCU) is a tracked cyclone cluster purposefully designed for your tailings deposition needs. SPCU’s help improve efficiency and increase the stability of your tailing’s facility, thus reducing risk. Together with our tailings management and risk monitoring system, we ensure increased safety and efficiency.

Our SPCUs are fitted with a custom designed cyclone cluster, increasing accuracy and productivity. The improved manifold allows the feed for each cyclone to be adjusted individually giving the operational team a higher level of control and operational flexibility.

Automated Meteorological Systems

Capable of providing data for virtually all-weather variables, the fully customisable weather observer can be assembled to each site requirement with a wide range of options and sensors. Receive climatic data via 3G/ WIFI straight onto a laptop or Android device. The unit monitors and measures a wide range of parameters, including temperature, humidity, barometric pressure, wind speed, wind direction and rainfall. This gives you a dashboard view from wherever you are.

Retrofit Piezometers (RFP’s)

RFP’s are a professional in-situ ground water monitoring system which can be retroactively fitted to existing standpipe piezometers. They provide a secure and compact automated water monitoring system. The data collected can be viewed from anywhere using any internet connected device, with the option to configure automated trigger alarms which can be sent via SMS and email.

Mobile Surveillance Units

Advanced mobile camera solutions provide significant value to operations by improving visibility and safety. The surveillance trailers can be rapidly deployed at practically any location providing security for remote sites, short-term events or off-grid locations. It is an ideal surveillance solution for locations without any fixed infrastructure for power or video transmission.

Tailored Monitoring Solutions

Fraser Alexander offers site specific monitoring solutions. A combination of the above mentioned products together with other existing services, tailored to meet the exact requirements of your project. Based on your budget, your operational needs and any technical demands, our holistic end-to-end service would include a site assessment, proposed solution, monitoring plan and final execution. Together, providing ongoing visibility and health of your facility.
