In many parts of the world, natural and mining induced seismicity impacts on mining risk. The Australian Centre for Geomechanics (ACG) developed a Regional Seismic Network (RSN) to provide local and regional seismic monitoring that enable the detection and location of larger mine induced seismic events, as well as smaller earthquakes occurring outside of the mine volume. The system is flexible and consists of easily sourced “off-the-shelf” components. The system is easily implemented in new locations and the data and processing of the events are accessible through a normal internet browser.
