Why Use Mining Drones?

When it comes to optimising the management of your quarry, pit or aggregate operation, accurate geospatial data is key. Today, no tools comes close to providing this data as efficiently, or as safely, as mining drones (or UAVs/UAS).


With a single automated flight, a mining drone can collect timely, georeferenced imagery that is quickly transformed into a precise 3D copy of your site. You can then use this digital version to calculate volumes, perform site surveys, optimise traffic management, design road layouts and much more.

Proven ROI across multiple applications

"The target, of course, for any investment, is to break-even. With the drone technology, we paid back both eBees in almost four months."
