How drone-mounted LiDAR scanning saved 3 hours of stope surveying work in just 12 minutes

Emesent Hovermap technology helps Unmanned Aerial Services achieve stope scanning activities in a fraction of the normal time.

An underground gold mine in Africa was looking to replace its outdated CMS stope surveying systems with new technology to improve efficiency and safety. Emesent partner Unmanned Aerial Services was called in to assist using drone-mounted Hovermap LiDAR scanning.

Learn how Hovermap took only 12 minutes to scan a massive (150 x 40 x 20 m) stope with over 96% coverage, replacing over 3 hours of manual survey work, and allowing workers to remain at a safe distance from the stope edge.
