Scanning Falls of Ground, Emesent Hovermap

A South African mine faced production halt in a stope for several months due to a Fall-of-Ground (FOG) incident. Safety concerns prevented any access to the affected area. In order to resume production, a scanning device that could analyse the FOG without requiring personnel to enter the stope was urgently needed.

Learn more about how the Emesent Hovermap LiDAR SLAM scanner was utilised to safely and efficiently map an area of fall out by attaching it to a rig’s boom and extending it beneath the bad hanging wall.
