Drones for Mining: Quick Deployment. Extreme efficiency. Cost savings. Ease.

Introducing a Complete Line of Industry-Leading Drones for Mining

Microdrones UAVs are taking the global mining industry by storm. 

Less expensive than the helicopters traditionally used by the industry to gain an aerial perspective, drones are providing mining companies with mapping abilities that provide better results and drastically improved flexibility for a fraction of the cost.

Many Microdrones mining customers use our systems to survey mine progress multiple times per day. The mdCockpit app makes it easy to plan, monitor, and repeat missions and flight paths.

Complete UAV Solutions Ideal for Mining

For the mining industry, the sky’s the limit when it comes to the potential of drones to improve efficiency and cost. Some of the most common UAV mining applications include:

  • Mapping deposit sites
  • Surveying mines
  • Exploring for minerals
  • Monitoring stockpile volumes
  • Tracking equipment
  • Time-lapse photography

As seen in Inside Unmanned Systems, by Renee Knight: Microdrones has been flying the mdMapper1000DG advanced aerial mapping solution at the White Birch Paper mill in Quebec City for three years, providing a safer, more cost-effective way for the company to measure wood chip piles.

Microdrones was excited to see its systems in a nationally televised ad in Australia, based on the work being done by The Minerals Council of Australia and Rio Tinto. See the video here.

The mdMapper Line-Up

mdMapper200

Compact, complete, and competitively priced, mdMapper200 is a great option for companies seeking the easiest possible drone to transport or a smaller drone to add to their fleet.

mdMapper1000DG

The benefits of mdMapper1000 plus the power of direct georeferencing combine to produce the best possible accuracy and time savings with no ground control points. This system enables highly efficient corridor mapping.

mdMapper1000

Extra-long flight times and resistance to harsh environmental conditions make this complete mapping system an excellent choice for applications like surveying, mapping, inspection, and construction.

Optional accessory packages

Add-ons like inspection accessories, multispectral, thermal, and soon LiDAR and methane gas detection accessory bundles add flexibility and functionality to the platform.
