Stawell Gold Mines

Environmental dust monitoring solution measuring all PM fractions.

“Kenelec Scientific’s DustTrak monitoring systems allows us to view and record real time air quality information both on site and at background monitoring locations. This data, combined with accurate weather forecasting tools is invaluable when it comes to planning tasks, maintaining compliance and most importantly, working towards our goal of Zero Environmental Harm.”

Cameron Hope, Environment and Community Superintendent, Stawell Gold Mines

The customer

Stawell Gold Mines are located approximately 240 km northwest of Melbourne, 70 km southeast of Horsham and 2 km east of the Stawell CBD. All surface and underground infrastructure associated with the site’s operations are located within the MIN5260 lease area.

The project

The requirement was to monitor air quality and determine dust levels along the gold mine site boundary located very close to the Stawell city residential region which consists of many sensitive sites like schools and a hospital.

Our solution

Kenelec Scientific supplied three TSI 8543 Dust Environmental Monitors, which are pole mounted and send alarms and alerts to the Environmental Manager once dust levels and smoke levels are exceeded. An additional TSI 8535 enclosure-based DustTrak monitoring system mounted on a tripod was supplied to provide the flexibility of setting up a mobile station where needed. These monitors use Pervasive Telemetry to enable real time data access.

The outcome

All the dust PM fractions continue to be remotely monitored using the Pervasive Telemetry in accordance with requirements.
