Screen captures from the McArthur River Mine interactive visualisation

Overview

E2E was commissioned in 2011 to create an interactive visualisation of the proposed Xstrata Zinc McArthur River Mine Phase 3 Development Project.

The visualisation detailed the life of mine through the phases of the proposed development. Users are able to view the open-pit mine in its current and future states. In addition the application contained detailed information on re-vegetation and species lists, aboriginal sacred sites, place names etc.

Users are able to travel through the extensive environment in drive and fly mode with full navigational control.
Areas of interest can be interrogated for key information.

Significant preset view points allow users to view the visual impact of the pit, the tailings storage facility, the view of the mine from the public road and overburden piles over time.

The tool was used during community and government consultation to provide a clearer visualisation of the proposed development.
