mining Drone services

From evaluating land for opportunities to creating models of open-pit mines, UAV LiDAR technology plays a key role in modern mining operations. With our nationwide network of experienced, licensed pilots and project managers, mining companies are working with FlyGuys to get key data while lowering costs, improving efficiency, and increasing safety at mining sites.

How LiDAR Improves Mining Operations

Licensed professionals can use the LiDAR collected at every stage of a mining project, from inspecting and surveying the area and planning operations to creating a plan for returning the land back to a natural state at the project’s conclusion.

Increasing Safety

Mines and mining operations are often located in remote locations with challenging terrain, including steep embankments and unstable ground foundation. Using drones to gather data keeps your team away from dangerous areas and provides essential safety data.

Increase Speed of Data Collection

If a future mining site is covered in vegetation, it can make data collection challenging. However, LiDAR technology is able to successfully scan these areas in a short period of time. Additionally, using drones with LiDAR increases data collection times for mining sites, especially those that span over a large area.

Minimize Costs and Maximize Revenue

Not only is LiDAR an efficient way to gather in-depth data, it also can help reduce time and labor costs. Organizations see long-term returns through volumetrics data as provided by LiDAR drones used to convey more precise estimates of production and output.
