Overwatch is in the ground! We repeat… In. The. GROUND!
In collaboration with world leading geotechnical researchers from The University of Queensland including Chenming Zhang and Lieven Tan, we’re delighted to share that our Overwatch probe was yesterday lowered 25 meters below the surface at Mining3.
Successfully reporting pressure, pH, temperature, salinity (& more) data on the subsurface conditions, this test signifies that our team has taken what was just a vision for complete subsurface surveillance 6 months ago – and transformed it into reality!
Direct monitoring of the subsurface is imperative to ensure both tailings storage facility safety and GISTM adherence. And with this test completed, we’re looking forward to continuing our discussions with key partners to commence our operational pilots in the coming months.

Finally, a massive thank you to our team and partners who helped make this milestone possible. Enjoy the recap video below!
