Drones For Mining
Worker safety is of paramount importance, by allowing surveyors to collect accurate spatial data from above, drone or UAV technology can vastly reduce risk by minimizing the time these staff spend on site.
Drone-based data collection can also boost productivity; surveying projects that once took days or weeks using traditional surveying techniques are now possible in just a few hours. Plus, thanks to a 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. Many operators report that a single imaging drone – comparable in price to a mid-range GPS rover – can pay for itself in just a few months.
