AN INVESTIGATION INTO THE USE OF LIGHT DETECTION AND RANGING (LIDAR) FOR OPERATIONAL DUST CONTROL AT OPEN-CUT COAL MINING OPERATIONS

Pacific Environment was awarded grant C52029 from the Australian Coal Association Research Program (ACARP) to investigate the use of lidar (Light Detection and Ranging) for operational dust control at open-cut coal mining operations. The objective of this work was to investigate suitable options and implement a real-time monitoring method that would provide accurate detection of particulate matter (PM) movement across significant and critical sections of a site boundary, with the potential to be visualised in real-time.
