Abstract
Potash mining is an important economic activity in the region of Catalonia (Spain), where there are two mines in Sallent and Súria. The extraction levels are between a depth of 500-1000 meters. This extraction generates surface horizontal and vertical displacements, which was controlled by periodic GPS measurements in permanent points. Each mine was surveyed every two years, having measurements from 2008 to 2016 through 600 control points. This system has been modified to only 200 control point...
