HOVERMAP™

FOR MINING
Emesent-Hovermap-Stope-Mapping-Scan

A smart mobile scanning unit which mounts to drones to provide autonomous mapping in challenging inaccessible areas.

Equally capable above ground or underground, indoors or out, Hovermap is your complete mobile LiDAR mapping solution. Put an end to hazardous inspections and surveys by substituting a person with a drone in high risk environments and gain unprecedented analytical insights for all your mining decision making.

WHY CHOOSE HOVERMAP™

FOR MINING

Whether you are drilling, blasting, filling or anything in between, mining efficiency is underpinned by safety and operational insight. Surveyors and geotechs armed with Hovermap and its rich point clouds can support improvements across the mining teams. From the jumbo to the board room, Emesent delivers clarity.

SAFETY

Improve safety and reduce risk. Keep personnel away from brows, confined spaces or heights.  Send a Hovermap enabled drone on an autonomous mission into stopes, drawpoints, shafts or other high risk workplaces. Safely check drill angles and confirm bund heights and locations.

GREATER INSIGHTS

Hovermap’s rotating LiDAR provides an omni-directional field of view, ensuring 3D data is collected in all directions.  3D Data is collected consistently whilst greatly reducing shadows. Investigate convergence monitoring and perform rock mass classifications. Output high accuracy volumetrics for over/ under break, reconciliations and stockpile paste scheduling. Pair additional sensors such as cameras or gas monitors for further data analytics.

PRODUCTIVITY & EFFICIENCY

With Hovermap you can map stopes and other inaccessible areas in minutes rather than hours. Confirm backfill volumes and heights, improve scheduling and backfill design or reduce production interruptions with a rapid scan that can quickly identify remaining stope volumes.

MOUNT IT

TO FIT YOUR MINING APPLICATIONS

As a single unit, Hovermap tackles all your mining data collections requirements with its versatile deployment options. 

VEHICLE MOUNT

DOZER MOUNT

DRONE MOUNT

CABLE APPLICATION

Raisebore shaft, 5m diameter, 500m depth Hovermap lowered down shaft with a cable

UNDERGROUND

MINING APPLICATIONS

The applications of Hovermap underground are extensive thanks to its versatile deployment options. Hovermap provides you with greater underground insights that have not been possible before. It is time to make such risky methods as CMS a practise of the past and entrust Hovermap to safely obtain more accurate underground mining data.

STOPES

Inspect a stope from a safe distance whilst uncovering never seen before detail including areas previously hidden by shadows. Complete your stope scan in less time than it takes to setup a traditional Cavity Monitoring System.

Draw Points

DRAW POINTS

Scan for hang-ups and collect the data needed to plan for their removal whilst safely piloting from the extraction drive.

Convergence Monitoring

CONVERGENCE MONITORING

 Detect subtle deformation within walls and backs as a part of safety monitoring. Drive your response plans with qualitative data whilst gaining insight into residual capacity.

ORE PASSES

Stay on top of wear and damage within ore passes and increase safety during maintenance through detailed 3D insights

Drive Development

DRIVE DEVELOPMENT

Grab a quick scan post-blast or whilst setting out to capture volumes,over break and under break. Regular scans will also help detect deformation in these areas where personnel are exposed to most rock mass hazards.

Old Workings

OLD WORKINGS

Bring mine areas that may have been untouched for over a century right into the 21st century. Digitise entire networks of historical development in as little as a day.

ABOVE GROUND

MINING APPLICATIONS

Accurate measurements and models are made possible without being dependent on GPS. Fly closely and safely with our Virtual Elliptical Shield (VESH) or walk the scanner through plant and other facilities.

INSPECTION & MAPPING OF ABOVE GROUND INFRASTRUCTURE

INSPECTION & MAPPING OF ABOVE GROUND INFRASTRUCTURE

Redefine the concept of as-built and gain detailed insight into your above ground infrastructure. Operations teams can rapidly find and action insights to reduce and avoid production disruptions.

STOCKPILES

STOCKPILES

Utilise the accuracy of LiDAR scanning to gather vital measurements. Boost your financial forecasting, reconciliation and supply chain management.
OPEN CUT MINE MAPPING
