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.
How is High Precision 3D Data Improving Mining Workflows?
Huge thanks to Chris Lane and Melissa Newton from Teck Resources, and Andy Jansen from Nevada Gold Mines for sharing their experiences.
How Accurate Do Your Mine Surveys Need To Be?
We had a lively discussion with two experienced mine surveyors during the inaugural launch of the Skycatch monthly series of expert roundtables and thought leadership webinars.
3 Types of Highwall Mining Technology Making the Industry Safer
Mining is as much about gathering information as it is gathering metals and minerals. Similarly, as heavy equipment and extraction techniques have evolved over the years, so, too, have information-capturing techniques and technologies. Highwall mining, in particular, has come a long way, and modern mining operations are reaping the benefits with new mining solutions.
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.
