Mining Solutions

Our drone-based data collection service can also boost productivity; mine surveying projects that once took days or weeks using traditional surveying techniques are now possible in just a few hours. Plus, thanks to our drone’s ability to collect data from above, there is no downtime required while surveyors move around a pit, as can be the case when using terrestrial surveying instruments.

 

With fewer man hours required to produce large, accurate data sets, and no need for externally-sourced imagery, the result is vastly reduced costs.

We are offering the following benefits for using our solution:

Long-term planning

  • Pit & dump management
  • Communication of daily/weekly mining plans
