LiDAR has distinct advantages over traditional methods when evaluating the topography of open pits and mines. These include significantly denser data sampling resulting in more accurate volumetric models, speed of acquisition and processing, convenience and lower relative cost of the LiDAR survey.
Our LiDAR systems can acquire over 2,000,000 points per square kilometer. The density of the LiDAR samples and resultant volume calculations easily provide superior results.
Most mining projects completed are geared towards feasibility studies, potential site development or volumetric analysis, however with LiDAR, additional uses include structural geology, geomorphology, run-off modeling, power line corridors and transportation access. Enhanced orthophoto imagery is also available to enhance your survey.
