Emesent partners, Dwyka Mining Services and Unmanned Aerial Services demonstrated Hovermap at Kibali by flying a 150m high stope in May 2019. The Barrick survey teams needed to accurately assess stope stock volumes, without risking the safety of personnel.
Watch now to learn:
George Fouche (Kibali) and Martin Le Grange (Bulyanhulu) talk about the benefits to Barrick:
- Safety: using autonomy to remove people from the void edge
- Quality data: shadowless, uniform, high resolution data available to geotechs, mine engineers and geology
- Speed: scan duration of 15 mins enables regular stope mapping
- Accurate stock volume: improved EoM reconciliation outcomes
Kibali is now expanding Hovermap’s use to scan underground silos by lowering Hovermap in a protective cage to assess silo condition.
