Use of Aerial Surveying in Mining

Aerial surveying Toronto service and mapping techniques have been in function over 40 years to help mining organizations through all mining life phases like exploring, evaluation of the resources, feasibility, design of the mine, development, functioning and rehabilitation of the site. The most apt, fit for purpose, aerial surveying approach for mining basically relies on aerial photo and photogrammetry. The fame and success of this approach depends on the experience, ability, delivery speed as well as knowledge of the aerial surveying Toronto service company, supportive mine survey staff members and probably some good weather.

The three-dimensionaldata extracted from this approach comprises of digital terrain facsimiles, vector mapping of mines, topographic mapping, pictorial photography and contours. For dynamic mining functions, aerial mapping is a crucial equipment to find out about the deformations of the mine surface, and to discover the depths of the pits, height of tailing dumps and height of waste dump.

Aerial surveying Toronto service has become a big yes for all the exploration companies as it helps in simplifying and speeding up the exploration procedure. The easy accessibility of radar, multi-spectral photography in several combos helped geologist to assess regions in more detail than before. The different flyovers permit a prospect to be seen in several light in different weathers. This has led to lowering of the expenses of the regional exploration by deducting the necessity of repeated trips to a place for reassessing purpose.

Aerial Surveying in Mining helps in

  • Resource evaluation and discovering
  • Construction and designing of the infrastructure and mine plant
  • Evaluation of the pit, ore body for mine planning
  • Environmental planning, reporting and monitoring of the mining functions
  • Time to time update of the pre-strip, pit and surface
  • Time to time evaluation of inventory volume for accounting reasons

With the advancement in aerial surveying mining has certainly multiplied manifolds.
