Specialists in professional weather stations for the mining industry
A reliable automatic weather station is utilised to undertake a local climate (microclimate) weather audit when applying for mining leases, extensions and approvals,
The audit’s baseline weather data may be useful for the preparation of an environmental impact statement and various reports required by State EPA and government bodies.
Choosing a suitable weather station of critical to the efficient completion of mining projects. Failing to choose the right solution could result in a whole project being delayed significantly while baseline data is waiting to be collected.
Weather monitoring for improved worker comfort and safety
Having access to data from on-going weather monitoring can inform decisions that directly impact mine production, worker comfort and the wellbeing of neighbouring communities.
Examples of this include:
- Rainfall and soil moisture data can be useful for risk management strategies associated with mine and site flooding, all-weather road access, slope stability and the siting and construction of mine infrastructure and worker facilities.
- Evaporation rates can be measured via the FAO56 calculation within the Weather Maestro, based on wind speed, air temperature, relative humidity and solar radiation sensors. This has implications for determining when operations can recommence after a major rain event, and for monitoring of tailings dams and other water storages.
- Worker Heat Stress & UV radiation Through calculating the industry best practice Thermal Work Limit (TWL) Index & Monitoring for UV radiation exposure, Mining Management has the ability to confirm a safe working environment.
- Wind direction and wind speed data allows the monitoring of the movement and dispersion of dust and hazardous gases. It also affects dust suppression strategies and the design and positioning of workshop facilities and admin buildings
- Lightning Warning sensors can be used to detect nearby and approaching lightning, allowing you to monitor for lightning risk and issue Alerts via SMS and Email when required.
