Security is a prime concern in any mine, whether gold mining or coal mining. A laser scanner can identify and record any cracks and fissures, compare these data to previous scans, and identify any areas of concern. This is an enormous contribution to mine safety and a safe work environment.

Ongoing 3D documentation of the mine, carried out by a FARO® Focus3D, can prevent a mine collapse, as it instantly detects any alterations in local rock strata, so that appropriate security measures can be taken well in advance. Construction work underground, such as the digging of a new coal mine, is also made easier and safer by the use of laser aided 3D documentation.

In surface mining and strip mining, used for certain types of coal and minerals, the pit also needs careful inspection. The portable FARO Focus3D can also identify specific quantities of rock and raw materials, which make it a valuable piece of modern mining equipment.
