Drones, also known as unmanned aerial vehicle systems are beginning to have a profound effect on mining. These drones have proven themselves in the mining industry as an efficient replacement for ground-based survey methods.
Here are some of the reasons why drones are used for mining surveys:
- In the mining industry use of drones is currently centered on safeguarding human safety in risky and hazardous operations.
- Using drones for mining surveying saves time and energy, increasing survey speeds and, ultimately, the drone is increasing productivity
drone mining inspection
- Drones eliminate delays in project schedules and ensure plans are properly executed
By using drones, land use can be monitored and any encroachment on company property quickly detected.
