Arvista assists with Sirius Resources’ Nova Nickel Project


Since February 2015 Arvista has been providing mine surveying services for Sirius Resources’ Nova Nickel project, located east of Norseman in Western Australia. Our team of mine surveyors have conducted all mine surveying tasks associated with the establishment of the underground mine and associated infrastructure until such time as Sirius were able to establish their own mine surveying team.

During this period Arvista have provided the following services to Sirius:

  • Provision of WA authorised Grade 1 surveyors
  • Supply of survey equipment and software licences
  • Selection of new survey equipment for the project
  • Production surveying requirements for the boxcut, portal and decline development
  • Establishment of a pillar control network for the underground mine
  • Regular UAV aerial surveying of the project site for volumetric measurement, measurement of cleared areas and provision of up-to-date aerial imagery.
  • General set-out and as-built surveys for surface infrastructure

Sirius have expressed great satisfaction with the quality of work that has been undertaken by Arvista and we look forward to ongoing involvement with the team at Nova.
