Modeling the World's Deepest Mine

Reporter 66
Owned by Anglo Gold Ashanti and employing 6,000 people, Mponeng Mine is part of the old Western Deep Levels Complex, near Johannesburg, South Africa and, as of last year, is officially classified by The Guinness Book of Records as the world’s deepest mine. At its deepest point the mine extends to a depth of 4.1 km (2.5 mi) below surface, where the rock temperatures can reach 60 ˚C (140 °F) and the ambient temperature reaches 36 ˚C (97 °F). To highlight potential problem areas before the installation of a new conveyor, a monorail, and a chair-lift at the mine a survey was carried out to build an accurate asbuilt 3D model of the development.
