The mining industry is extremely safety-conscious. For all mine operators slope-stability monitoring is absolutely critical for the safe operation of in open-cut mines and tailing dams and most often only a combination of different monitoring technologies can provide a global understanding of the situation.
We provide monitoring instruments and technologies for a variety of applications along with software packages that integrate all data into a single platform. Our integrated package enables the rapid collection and display of data, with the additional benefits of advanced QC procedures, management of workflows, in order to improve responses to time-critical events.
We only integrate sensors that we have evaluated, selected, tested and that we are regularly benchmarking. We work with all of the main instrument suppliers and are agnostic in terms of technology, protocol and formats.
We install the sensors on site, with qualified and trained staff, in accordance with high quality and safety standards.
Alternatively, we integrate data from your existing instrumentation system into our single data hub, Geoscope, so that all data can be visible together, enabling cross-comparison for advanced insights.
Jwaneng Mine is the flagship of the Debswana Diamond Company in Botswana. The mine became fully operational in August 1982 and there is an ongoing program to reach 624 metres. This operation is supported by a far-reaching instrumentation and monitoring network.
Instrumentation is provided by different vendors and Sixense has integrated all data in Geoscope allowing for cross-correlation of data types to enhance data insights and sytem reliability.

Sixense has implemented an integrated asset management and instrumentation monitoring system at Goro mine using Gescope and Beyond Asset.
Geoscope is used as a central data hub for instrumentation data, including geotechnical sensors, hydrological and weather data, and survey settlement data.
Beyond Asset is used to plan and conduct maintenance and inspection tasks, and is also used by field technicians to collect manual instrumentation data.
Beyond Asset and Geoscope databases are connected to seamlessly transfer data between the two.
