Surveying for Construction

Mine Survey Plus was engaged by RUC to provide full survey support for construction of a 210m deep 5.5m diameter concrete lined shaft. This is phase one of construction of the overall ore hoist shaft which will reach 1500m when complete. Cutting edge methodology was devised to allow for precision survey control in a testing vertically constrained environment. This included Least Square adjustments on all survey control and cross referencing of position periodically using plumblines with prisms attached.
