Mine Survey

Mine surveyors are responsible for maintaining an accurate plan of the mine as a whole, and they update maps of the surface layout to account for new buildings and other structures. They also survey the underground mine workings in order to keep a record of the mining operation.

In production meetings, the surveyor is often blamed for lost production time. This is because a lag in surveying disrupts the whole operation. Therefore, surveyors need optimal performance in surveying equipment and new techniques that will save time, reduce risks, and provide the most accurate data.
