It is clear that lidar technology can be extremely useful for the mining industry. This technology can help improve safety and efficiency while also reducing operating costs. As the use of lidar technology continues to grow, we can expect to see even more benefits for the mining industry.
A variety of lidar survey methods are used in the mining industry to help with operations planning and assessment. Lidar surveying allows us to map the terrain before the start mining, so you can plan operations in a way that minimizes damage.
Mapping and modeling of terrain
Lidar can be used to create highly accurate maps of large areas of land. This is especially useful in the mining industry where large scale operations are common.
Identification of geologic features
Lidar can be used to identify features such as faults, folds, and dykes. This information is important for understanding the geology of an area and planning mining operations.
Mapping of drainage patterns
Lidar can be used to map the drainage patterns of an area. This information is important for understanding the hydrology of an area and planning mining operations.
