Mine and Quarry noise

Mines and quarries generate high levels of noise through blasting or from heavy earthmoving machinery. Where residences are located nearby, noise may cause disturbance to interfere with daily activities.

Mines and Quarries are required to carry out regular noise monitoring of their operations to meet the acoustic requirements in their operating licence. This may be in the form of unattended long term noise logging or short term attended noise monitoring.

To meet noise limits, mobile mining plant is required to achieve strict noise emissions. We can measure the Sound Power Level from mobile plant to verify compliance with licence conditions.

Occasionally when communication between local residents and a mine or quarry breaks down residential communities may engage an acoustic consultant to assist in gathering technical data regarding the noise impact of the mine or quarry.

Day Design is equipped with instrumentation and personnel that are able to monitor noise from mines and quarries.
