Mining & Aggregates
Safe and Productive


Mining operations benefit from photogrammetry drones by providing data collection over large and frequently changing areas in record time compared to traditional methods all while keeping surveyors out of harms way.

Water Management

The 3D outputs produced by drone data, including point clouds and digital surface models are extremely powerful in understanding water flows during mining operations.  In order to keep up mine productivity, engineers can use up to date topographical data in order to design adequate drainage basins.

Mining & Aggregates

Professional surveying drones provide accurate topographical data for to mine engineers which improves productivity through stock pile management and mine planning. Surveyors no longer need to expose themselves to dangerous slopes and machinery in order to get a few data points.  The mining terrain is constantly changing but this is not a challenge for mining drones.

Reporting & Accounting

Since UAVs can efficiently survey large mine sites, it is practical to obtain large surveys for multiple uses. Besides applying topographical data and orthophotos to mine planning, the same data can be utilized for reporting, whether for accounting or for regulatory applications.

Coal Stock Pile By Robota


One of the areas where drone imagery excels is providing up to date and accurate information on stock piles which is critical to surface mine engineers. Knowing overburden and product levels allows for bot reclamation planning and business planning.
