Across the mining industry, drones give exceptional results by enabling greater data collection and enhancing safety and productivity. Drones’ usage in in mining have shown tremendous growth and have also added significant value to all mining projects. With better coordination, in-depth analysis, diminished expenses, and heightened workers' safety, the mining industry has opened its arms for UAVs. Multisensor payloads and advance software tools with built-in AI are giving wings to this tool. Drone intelligence has made an incomparable position in the mining industry.


Drone technology has addressed many challenges of day-to-day mining operations. Many mines-minerals and metal companies have adopted UAV programs as an integral part of their operations. The list of drone benefits in mining applications is growing rapidly with the advancement of technology. Some of the key advantages are as below-


  • Safety- High resolution inspection/survey of hard to reach mine areas without having an employee physically try to access the area.

  • Inventory management -Accurate stockpile volume calculations

  • Time saving – The system’s mobility and its ability to rapidly analyze gathered data significantly reduces the time of report/map/model generation

  • Cost saving– Apart from saving employee time & other equipment’s cost, huge time savings produces considerable cost saving

  • Detailed inspection – Due to advanced LiDAR/thermal/RGB payloads, drones are able to capture micro level details of inventory, slope, water bodies, haul road, assets & unreachable areas, etc.

  • High productivity– Low costs and short time of capturing data/images make drones the most effective way to perform mine inspections.

  • High quality inspection– our trained pilots are able to fly very close to the inspected areas & objects. Together with our experts’ knowledge we are able to rapidly generate reports and data assessing the mining operation in all key categories.

Drones can access hard-to-reach-areas to provide for better mining planning. In coal mines, drones can be used to detect hot spots in coal stockpiles to assess potential spontaneous combustion areas and enable personnel to take pre-emptive measures. Drones can further aid in watershed management, blast planning, haul-route surface optimization and emergency response.


Normally, surveying and mapping of mineral landscapes is a time-consuming process. By employing drones and a drone pilot instead of a piloted plane, a mine can save around 90% of the cost per hour, and collect unlimited aerial data. The drone collected data includes fine measurements along with simultaneously capturing high end orthoimages.


We are well equipped with our multirotor and fixed wing fleet with rich collection of payloads (RGB/IR/NIR/LiDAR/Chemical) to address your day to day mine inspection requirements. We use advance software and tools for data/image processing. Our AI based inspection reports provide minute levels of details of operational parameters.
