Across the mining industry, drones are demonstrating exceptional results by enabling much greater data collection, enhancing safety, and improving productivity. Application of drones for collecting visual data particularly of difficult and volatile areas such as deep and high terrains of a mine, highwalls, crests, and inside stopes. Further, aerial data capturing from blast sites, reduces the risk of exposure on the ground to such dangers. Mine surveying drones can provide deliverables in a matter of hours and require less investment than ground survey equipment. Frequent data collection allows better monitoring of site occupation, soil conditions, and traffic management for a better forecast. Mining explorations with drones save time and reduce operational human risks while calculating complex volumes with great precision for stockpile monitoring and stockpile inventory. it can create 3D reconstructions and surface models for areas to be blasted or drilled. After blasting, thermal imaging and photometry are used to make sure there have been no potentially hazardous shifts in material. Comparisons between surveys taken before and after blasting allow more accurate calculations of volumes to improve planning for future blasts and cut the cost of explosives, time on site, and drilling.
