Aerial LiDAR, digital image and hyperspectral surveys support mineral exploration project phases. Airborne LiDAR can efficiently cover large and remote areas to assess regional geomorphology to support mineral exploration project phases. LiDAR can effectively penetrate vegetation to generate bare earth models to support mineral exploration projects. This provides the means to identify surficial expressions of geological zones that are not visible in traditional photography. Detailed topographic data obtained by LiDAR surveys can help guide ground-based exploration projects making them more efficient and lowering environmental impact risks.
