Modelling of the mining exploitation area such as pit and stockpile became one of the usage of photogrammetry approach which is pretty much used in mining industry, and drone has the important role to do such work.
The process is fast and precise. Land modeling using drones became an attractive option to assess the environmental changes, calculate the volume being extracted, monitor the contractor and third party activities, and document reclamation.
In mining operation, volume becomes a crucial factor. Either it is stockpile volume or extracted volume. Both can be used to approximate the production on the particular site.
By using drone, a model of open pit and stockpile can be produced in a timely manner and precise result, providing a high resolution and high accuracy calculation with high confidence level.
Underground tunnels can become the most hazardous environment for people to work. There are some unsupported area that have high risk for incident. But, the formation of rocks have to be monitored and modeled precisely to understand what is currently happening in that mining site. By using Terra Slam, an anti-collision multirotor equipped with mini LiDAR, the modeling of the tunnels can be easily done with a safely manner.
Tools and sensors play important roles in mining exploration, especially when it comes to metals and minerals. Magnetic anomaly is one of the factors being measured and evaluated to find the indicative location of a specific mineral. By performing survey using drone, more lines can be acquired in a single day compared to ground survey, and it can be used in inaccessible or hazardous area, a perfect new friend for geophysicist.
Drone GPR are lightweight (compared to a manned airplane or a helicopter), easily transportable by car and capable of flying autonomously at low altitudes with high precision. Such an approach assures delivery of accurate survey results, is also safer for personnel and more time-efficient.
A GPR mounted on a drone enables to see through the surface of ground, ice, rocks, freshwater, and buildings or through structures at unsafe and hazardous environments without compromising the safety of staff, providing an additional solution for more efficient surveying.
