Active Mine Operations

Conducting airborne survey and mapping programs over active mine operations present significant challenges that need to be safely overcome. Terra has an unmatched depth of experience carrying out operations over active mine sites, which requires detailed planning and communication with mine operators. Survey activities have to be carefully coordinated with mine operators to minimize impacts on day-to-day work at active mine sites, such as drilling and blasting.

Active mine operations rely on airborne digital mapping data to effectively monitor active mining operations. Haul roads, tailings piles, benches and pit walls can be assessed for potential geohazards using airborne LiDAR derived digital elevation models. Terra’s data can be used with ArcGIS, Isatis and Vulcan software to take the guesswork out of slope stability and geohazard studies.
