Our goal is to pioneer the application of fiber optic technology to assess the geotechnical behavior of deep mine pit rock masses and contribution of improve de safety factor. The use of this resource is being initially applied at the Tamanduá 2021 mine, with the installation of a fiber optic sensor system in boreholes 90 meters deep. The data obtained will be compared with the results of simulations and traditional instruments.
