Australia: Consolidated Mining & Civil, or CMC, has acquired a Maptek Sentry monitoring system for surveying and monitoring at a gold mine in South Australia. The system will track movement and notifying stakeholders about potentially unsafe areas of an open pit operation. It is equipped with a long range I-Site 8820 laser scanner and dedicated software to detect unpredictable wall movement. The Sentry system can also be modeled for other functionalities, like survey reconciliation, stockpile volumetrics, geological mapping and kinematic analysis. CMC will also use the laser scanner for routine survey applications throughout the operation.
