How Drone Data Is Transforming the Mining Industry

November 27, 2018 at 10:00am PT

Drones have become a staple on mines across the world: they’re making it safer, easier, and cheaper to get accurate topography data, plan blasts, measure stockpiles, and more.

In this joint webinar with Gerdau and Hexagon Mining, we’ll give you an in-depth look at how Gerdau, one of the largest steelmakers in the world, built a drone program for their iron ore mines and immediately started seeing the benefits, including saving over $100,000 per year on surveying costs and significantly improving survey productivity and safety.

We’ll also demonstrate how you can bring your point clouds into your existing mining software tools, such as MinePlan 3D from Hexagon Mining, and use them for precise volume measurements, mine planning, and more. Space is limited, save your seat!
