Using drones for mining is safer, faster and more effective than sending out inspectors or using manned aircraft for inspections. Droneworxs has been offering drone services to the mining industry for years and our experience has led to being one of the most in demand companies for aerial mapping.
As we said above, drones are much more cost effective, safer and faster when it comes to mining. There is no need to hire an expensive manned aircraft, or rely on a satellite which is also costly. Our drones capture high resolution images that, unlike satellites, can get closer to the ground and are unaffected by cloud. Our typical map resolution is 3cm per pixel – that is, detailed enough to see golfball and matchbox sized objects, though we can provide a higher resolution if you need it.
Unlike traditional mapping methods which put lives at risk and interrupt operations, UAVs cause no disruption and remove the safety risks. With a drone there is no area that is off limits or unsafe. Our experienced pilots control everything remotely, alongside you, so you can be sure that you get all the information you need. We can provide complete 3D terrain models that are accurate to 5-8cm, and they’re fully geo-referenced and ortho-rectified – so you can use them for measurements and calculations.
More and more companies are discovering the advantages that drones have to offer, from the cost savings to to the increase in efficiency and productivity.
If you want a turnaround of days not months, significant cost savings and a complete service, choose Droneworxs for all your mine mapping and survey needs. Give us a call on +61 488 033 938 to talk about what you need and we’ll be happy to discuss it with you.
