RMUS Partners With Skycatch to Deliver Advanced Automation Solutions for Mining
We are proud to announce our new partnership with Rocky Mountain Unmanned Systems (RMUS) to provide a range of digital mapping and data management solutions tailored for mining applications.
Mitigating Mining’s Environmental Impact With Technology
Traditionally, tailings dam monitoring has been a tedious, manual process with mixed results. Mine operators bore holes along the dam surrounding the tailings storage facility (TSF), then periodically visited those spots to take measurements.
How Deployment of High Accuracy Drones Makes Surface Mining Safer
Drones are no longer "a nice to have" option at an open-pit mining site. They have become a necessity to explore and survey land, assist with drill and blast planning, measure stockpiles and capture data from vast highwall mining sites.
Experts Discuss Tailings and Innovative Monitoring Technologies
Huge thanks to Antonio Caires, Henrique Alves, and Sean Hinchberger for contributing to such a dynamic and informative discussion. With over 50 years’ experience between them, we had a lot to learn from their insights related to current trends as well as developing technologies that could make TSFs safer, more secure, and more sustainable going forwards.
Expanding Digital Transformation is Top of Mind for Miners in 2021
As we continue to work with our customers and learn more about their needs in the new year, one theme has come through loud and clear. The number one focus for 2021 is to expand and capitalize on their company and department's digital transformation efforts.
How Surveying Is No Longer The Highwall Mining Data Bottleneck
Capturing good, accurate data for highwall mining analysis has been a persistent challenge facing the mining industry, and we think it’s one worth improving.
