Lydian is a UK based mining company with a 5 million ounce gold mining project in Armenia. The Armenian community’s main concerns were sound intensity, dust impact, water pollution, and visibility of the open pit design from the road and local villages.
The Company Challenge:
The challenge was to remove the concerns of the local Armenian community about the possibility of water pollution, sound intensity, dust impact, visibility of the open pit design from villages and the road.
Our goal was to assist the company in visualizing their commitment to environmental safeguards, alleviating any concerns of the local Armenian community. We worked with their technical team extensively in order to portray their mine design solutions.
In detailed animation, we portrayed the design of sound barriers that would reduce sound impact. We further illustrated how the planting of trees and vegetation would cover the visibility of the open pit mine site from the local villages and assist with noise reduction as well as dust protection. We depicted how their design of the heap leach pad would prevent leaking of any harmful materials into the ground water. We illustrated specialized water monitoring devices that would be placed in all sensitive areas, gathering real time information about water quality.
The final output was two presentations interweaving 3D animation and video, completed in both Armenian and English.
