The Project

Our technology will provide essential information to mining companies. A drone squad will explore underground caves and scan the 3D expansion void, which will allow MINING COMPANIES to improve their decisions

This startup will offer the product (drone) to underground mining companies in operation. We will also offer a software for interpreting the data obtained from the robot and consulting. Have in mind that each robot could be sold in at least 20,000 US and dozens of these could be required by an block/panel caving project along its entire life (i.e. 20 years). We are aware that mining companies always have money to be used in caving cave monitoring (i.e geophysics survey) so we are simply aiming on this money. Currently there are more than 20 operating and planned block/panel cave mines worldwide

Our initial plan is to expand our drone to all block / caving mines around the world in 5 to 10 years. Our next step will be improving this apparatus aiming on evaluating rock mass properties inside the air gap, rock deformation measures and block size distribution of caved rock. We believe that this robot will be a milestone in terms of the block caving geomechanics.
