The mining industry is experiencing a revolution in data collection and safety improvements. More and more, mining companies are utilizing Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) as a less expensive means compared to helicopters or airplanes. Equipped with mapping and volumetric capabilities, unique data collection of stockpile inventory and reporting is achieved at a fraction of the cost and time. Through thermal and geographic imagery, real-time data of deposit sites and proposed mines provides accurate inventory management and planning. Operators can now reduce labor costs by 84%, increase data accuracy by 80%, and fly 150-acres in under 30 minutes.
