Mine Surveying in WA – What SEAM Can Deliver


The mining and construction sectors are the backbone of Western Australia’s economy – and to support those sectors, companies need precise surveys and spatial data.

Out west, the environment is as challenging as it is diverse. That’s why having a reliable surveying partner like SEAM Spatial – who can deploy fast and seamlessly integrate with project teams – is essential.

SEAM capabilities for surveying in WA

Unlike some surveying companies that offer their services nationwide, SEAM has dedicated team members operating in Western Australia. We’re able to mobilise quickly to client sites, because we don’t always have to fly specialists over from the eastern states.

While many of our WA clients are part of the mining industry, SEAM’s full range of capabilities are available for any project – including construction and clean energy:

Precise above-ground and underground surveys that leverage innovative technology – like RPAS, LiDAR and GeoSLAM.

Smart geotechnical and structural monitoring to optimise construction and remediation.

Insightful GIS and spatial data management to understand complex environments and inform decision-making.

SEAM is also well-known within WA for helping companies build their internal capabilities and capacity – including:

Developing proactive survey teams and enhancing departments previously considered ‘bottlenecks’.

Embedding within teams to handle requests outside of the typical scope with positive and constructive attitudes.

Improving data management and processes, while training on-site teams in these new systems.
