As part of the environmental impact assessment (managed by the Environmental Evaluation Unit, University of Cape Town and the Legal Resources Centre) of the Alexkor mining operations between Port Nolloth and Alexander Bay, AfriMap GIS has been commissioned to collect and manage relevant spatial data.

In order to evaluate the requirements for land rehabilitation and the expected cost of earthworks, as a result of the impact of mining operations, all existing survey data needs to be collected and varified. From this data, the areas and volumes required for earthworks calculations and costing can be determined.

Furthemore, accurate spatial data is required for the management of the enviromnental damage assessment. A base map series will form the basis of an environmental Geographic Information System (GIS), which is required to assess the requirements for maintainance / re-estblishment of indigenous vegetation and future land use practices.
