Mine rehabilitation and restoration
Remotely monitor mine rehabilitation efforts to reduce ecological impact
Mining activities can have a detrimental impact on the ecological environment, including the landscape, vegetation, soil, and water. Every mine site has unique rehabilitation and restoration goals, whether this is during mine closure or active operations.
Remote sensing data and analysis already play an important role in the mining life cycle, so integrating these technologies into mine restoration and rehabilitation programs is simple.
Achieve your sustainability goals and provide transparency to your stakeholders with solutions that track the restoration performance of mines to achieve a pristine or baseline state. Such solutions are also a cost saver, as monitoring the environmental state of a restored site through traditional methods is very expensive.
Reduce costs and achieve a baseline state for mine restoration
The Mine Site Ecological Index allows you to track the restoration performance of individual mines or many mines remotely to reduce costs associated with the recovery of the ecological environment.
What are your closure and rehabilitation goals?
I want to create baselines for the natural state of mine sites to compare to closure efforts.
Descartes Labs can help you ensure mining operations have the most minimal impact possible on ecosystems by employing our remote sensing data, coupled with advanced insights into species classification, forest biomass, and vegetative health.
With our solutions you can visualize and measure key benchmarks to create a historical record of the mine site environment, empowering you to report to key stakeholders and ensure you are meeting environmental goals and ensuring that mine sites are restored to their original state.
I want to ensure biodiversity during mine reclamation programs.
Biodiversity is a lynchpin of ecological health, and mining operations can have long-term impacts on the biodiversity of local environments. A key aspect of closure plans is to monitor and verify that ecosystems are restored to their natural, diverse state.
Remote sensing data, coupled with advanced insights into species classification, forest biomass, and vegetative health, Descartes Labs can help you ensure mining operations have the most minimal impact possible on ecosystems.
I want to automatically monitor multiple, remote mine sites simultaneously.
Mines, especially mines that are no longer operational, are often located in remote, hard to reach areas. Mining companies have a duty to remain stewards of all of their sites long after mines have closed, but it can be difficult and expensive to continuously monitor a growing number of closed mine sites.
Remote sensing data provides an “always on” approach to closure monitoring that allows mining companies to scale their analysis to all of their areas of interest, wherever they are located.
