Evolution improves Mungari stope design and reconciliation process

Autonomous LiDAR scanning solution Hovermap scans voids at Evolution Mining’s Mungari gold mine in Western Australia, allowing mine personnel to plan and manage stopes more effectively.

Armed with quality data, the team tackled stope analysis, bridging events and dilution due to over-break with much greater confidence.

In March 2020, Evolution’s survey team initially purchased Hovermap to map stopes. However, the team soon realised the level of data quality and coverage it could provide made it an ideal choice for other mapping applications. Its use escalated, and it’s now the preferred tool for mapping all voids at Mungari.

The survey team uses a Deswik workflow to georeference, cleanse, and validate the data, ready to be delivered as a detailed model, free of shadows and artefacts, to other teams, in less than five minutes.
