Institute of Mine Seismology

studying the seismic rock mass response to mining

Welcome to the

Institute of Mine Seismology

The Institute of Mine Seismology (IMS) is the world’s leading provider of microseismic monitoring technology to mines.

We are an independent private research organisation  focused on developing methodologies, technologies  and  services  for  monitoring  and modelling the seismic rock mass response to mining. In 2010, the IMS acquired the businesses and assets of ISS International and ISS Pacific.

PRODUCTS

We offer a digital, intelligent, high resolution seismic monitoring and control system, featuring on-line seismological processing, analysis and visualization.

SERVICES

We extract the maximum amount of useful information from the microseismic monitoring system at the mine.

RESEARCH

Our fundamental research focuses on the main differences between processes leading to earthquakes and the seismic rock mass response to mining.

APPLICATIONS

The IMS seismic monitoring system is designed for installation in the harsh environments of open pit and underground mines.

We provide a
