        Using advanced remote sensing technology and organizing 24 units from all over the country to work together, CGS has completed the remote sensing interpretation of suspected illegal mining activities for the first time, discovering more than 6,000 suspected illegal mines. We have also systematically accomplished  the comprehensive remote sensing survey and monitoring works for the investigation of mineral resources development and utilization status, the geological environment of mines and the implementation of the mineral resources plan, providing  important technical support to the nation-wide program of using the satellite image to conduct the law-enforcement inspection of mining activities.
