Digital Transformation In Surface Mines
3D Reality modeling: This uses drone technology to create precise 3D images of mines, such as sidewalls, dumps, slopes, and blast designs, without endangering surface mining personnel and is reliable & accurate.
Volumetric analysis - stockpile, pit & dump management: UAVs provide safer and faster stockpile, pit, and dump management in mining. They offer 3D views for data analysis and planning, detect changes, and enable a volumetric analysis of area, volume, and height.
Drill & blast optimization: Integrated drone technology with AI & ML Technology made drill and blast optimization visually interpret the data as well as make informed decisions based on the study analysis. Drones create high-resolution 3D maps for precise planning of drilling parameters for efficient fragmentation and reduced vibration. Drones equipped with sensors and cameras collect real-time data on blast results for analysis using AI and ML algorithms to optimize future parameters for improved safety, efficiency, and cost-effectiveness.
Pre-blast: drones can create high-resolution 3D maps of the terrain and geological features, allowing for accurate and detailed planning of drill hole location, depth, and angle. This can improve fragmentation, reduce vibration, and minimize overbreak and underbreak.
Post-blast: drones equipped with sensors and cameras can be used to collect real-time data on blast results, such as fragmentation, muck pile shape and size, and damage to surrounding infrastructure.
Mine Survey/ Topographical Survey: This technology is crucial for monitoring stockpile management, mining operations, haul road optimization, water and sediment flow, mine exploration, blast assessment, tailings dam monitoring, and other critical aspects of surface mining.
Haul Road Assessment AI: AI technology can detect and assess haul road safety and compliance by automatically identifying parameters such as grade, width, cross-falls, and berm heights.
AI in fragmentation analysis: AI technology can measure 2D and 3D muck pile fragmentation automatically using drones and optimize future shot designs with AI fragmentation prediction models that learn from previous shots.
Subsidence monitoring: UAVs equipped with cameras or LiDAR sensors, integrated with AI/ML algorithms, can monitor subsidence in mining and analyze data to detect changes in ground level, improving risk detection accuracy and efficiency.
Open pit compliance: We provide Services according to (MCDR and IBM) rules with highly advanced Artificial intelligence techniques combined with machine learning. All these compliance for safety audits, safety specifications of various parameters, etc. can be easily captured and complied.
Mine Planning & Design: Our experienced mining engineers and geologists plan and design operations. We use CAD-based software and Strayos, a cloud-based platform integrated with AI & ML technology, for optimized mine plans and designs. While minimizing the impact on the environment and the community, ensuring the economic viability of mine operations, by prioritizing safety, efficiency, and sustainability.
Mine Safety & Control is our top priority: We leverage our domain expertise to incorporate the latest drone technology and innovation, including AI & ML, to enhance our safety protocols and controls. By analyzing large amounts of visual data, we can identify potential safety hazards and take proactive measures to prevent accidents and ensure compliance.
Ecology & Environment in Mines and Rehabilitation Plans: Our mine rehabilitation plan emphasizes responsible mining practices, using dump stabilization, re-vegetation, and habitat restoration to restore the land and ecosystem. We prioritize stakeholder engagement and leaving a positive legacy for future generations.
Mine Closure Plan: Drone technology can enhance a Mine Closure Plan by providing high-resolution aerial imagery for monitoring environmental conditions, data collection on air and water quality, monitoring the progress of closure activities, and engaging stakeholders through visual representations.
Land acquisition: By adopting an integrated approach that combines drone technology, AI/ML, and GIS solutions, land acquisition efforts can be significantly improved with increased efficiency, accuracy, and better-informed decision-making.
