Mining Applications

Water Management

Management of Water:

  • A mining drone can assist in water management by correctly charting water flow based on the site’s topography.

Exploration of Minerals:

  • This is one of the most risky tasks that workers have typically performed. With drone technology altering numerous sectors of the mining business, assessment of surface features on photos can give new mineral development sites.

Blast Analysis

Blast Analysis:

  • Drones are used to inspect a region before a blast. Geologists can use a drone-derived digital model of a pit to help them optimize blast designs.

Mapping and Surveying:

  • Aerial surveying and mapping are time-consuming and inconvenient procedures that the mining industry must perform on a regular basis. 
  • The cost of detailed aerial photography is substantially cheaper than that of a regular piloted plane when high-quality drones and a competent drone pilot are on-site. 
  • The Geographic data collected can be converted into 3D models and accurate ortho-images with volumetric measurements.

Inspection

Inspection and monitoring:

  • Mining is one of the most dangerous industries for workers, particularly those involved in deep underground operations. Workers may be exposed to hazards such as rock falls, severe humidity, gas leaks, dust explosions, or floods, among others.
  • As a result, mining corporations can deploy drones to monitor and check deep down shafts at underground mines.
  • Drones are also being used to examine mining equipment, which is an expensive and time-consuming process that necessitates the use of highly skilled personnel.

Management of stockpiles:

  • The extraordinary height and area of stockpiles, which tend to alter regularly, are one of the most difficult issues any mining business encounters when managing them.
  • Mining businesses can use drones to create aerial terrain models of their inventories.
  • Effective stockpile management could provide considerable benefits to mining firms.
