A subsidiary of Polymetal, Silver of Magadan, will install high-tech equipment that will improve production safety. Specialists will use the deformation monitoring radar to monitor the state of the Lunnoye mine tailings dam.

According to the press service of the Magadan branch of Polymetal UK JSC, tailings in the mining industry are called waste of mineral processing. Once the radar is installed, geomechanics will be able to receive information about the stability of a hydraulic structure around the clock.

According to Sergei Antonyuk, the leading geomechanical engineer of the Mining Planning and Design Department of Serebro Magadana JSC, similar technologies are used on satellites. Monitoring systems will increase the safety of the facility operation. The high resolution provides an ideal measurement of surface displacements of objects of interest at a great distance. The equipment will send an alert if it detects design changes.

Oleg Ermakov, Chief Geomechanic of Polymetal UK, noted that ensuring the safety of personnel and caring for the environment are one of the company's core values. The use of the radar will allow receiving data on the state of the dam in real time, regardless of climatic and weather conditions. As part of a long-term analysis, it is possible to predict deformations and control risks to personnel and the environment.

The new equipment will arrive at the Lunnoye GOK this fall. Now specialists are preparing a site for its placement. Representatives of the manufacturer will provide installation and debugging, as well as train personnel to operate the radar and analyze the data received from it.

Similar monitoring systems are already in use at other Polymetal facilities. With their help, they monitor the condition of the slopes of mine workings at the enterprises of the Khabarovsk Territory and Kazakhstan.
