MINING & AGGREGATES
The mining industry is highly-regulated, technical, and potentially dangerous. Operational efficiency and cost is crucial; And safety is paramount.
SUAs help mine sites improve efficiency, lower costs, and increase safety by gathering powerful aerial data.
- SITE SURVEYING
Surveying a potential mine site is faster, safer, and more cost-effective using SUA technology.
- INFORMATION SHARING
Easily share maps and site information between on-site supervisors, explosive technicians, and employees in the lab.
- MATERIAL/AGGREGATE VOLUME ANALYSIS
More accurately determine material volumes that can be extracted, or calculate material volume on site.
- FRAGMENTATION ANALYSIS
Fly over blast sites to photograph the rock and ensure that the blast was done correctly. Flying overhead to plan a future blast.
- EQUIPMENT AND MATERIALS TRACKING
Keep track of the location of equipment and the amount of materials remaining.
- TERRACE/RAMP EVALUATION
Determine how much to add or remove for efficient operations.
- BENCH EVALUATION
Verify the face of the bench to understand structural integrity. Maintain safety by ensuring equipment is protected from falling over the side.
- REGULATORY AND ENVIRONMENTAL COMPLIANCE
Easily survey your site to ensure environmental compliance (e.g., measure the elevation variation to protect against material and/or chemical runoff)
- IMPROVED SAFETY
Measure materials with SUA instead of dangerous and labour-intensive manual methods.
