USING DRONES FOR MINING SPECIFIC SERVICES

Achieving a bird’s-eye-view of a mining site is a challenging task but drones are uniquely suited to the tasks of aerial mapping and scoping, offering lower operational costs, safer operating conditions, faster deployment, and more accurate data collection to more traditional surveying methods.

AERIAL INSPECTIONS

Mining sites require regular inspection for safety and reporting reasons. Offering swift, accurate surveillance and data collection over large areas, inspections carried out by a drone can address the operational challenges faced by human inspections.

AERIAL ASSESSMENTS

Equipped with the latest mapping technology, drones are capable of generating accurate topographical maps of large areas with minimal wear and tear on equipment, allowing for the creation of highly accurate models.

SURVEYS

Using photogrammetry (a surveying and mapping technique), drones provide quick deployment and turn-around times with accurate reporting from point cloud datasets. Survey ground control, processing, and reporting tasks are carried out by our experienced and registered surveyors.

LIDAR SURVEYS

LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) is a remote sensing method that uses light in the form of a pulsed laser to measure ranges to objects. These light pulses - combined with other data – can be used to generate precise, three-dimensional information.
