With the addition of the ExynPak from Exyn Technologies to our fleet of advanced mining and mineral exploration solutions, Burgex Inc. Mining Consultants now has in-house capabilities to provide a high-accuracy mapping of surface and underground mine workings. With a gimballed Velodyne LIDAR sensor and the ability to provide real-type 3D mapping with survey-grade accuracy, the ExynPak is the leader in high accuracy handheld mapping for mining and exploration applications.
Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) enables accurate, survey-grade 3D mapping in real-time without the use of GPS. This enables precision mapping in underground mining environments that have been traditionally difficult to map using modern methods. The ability to map underground and surface mining workings in high resolution provides an enormous advantage to mine planning and mineral exploration projects. With LIDAR capabilities of over 600K points per second and a 360° horizontal field of view, it is possible to quickly identify slopes, faults, and other geological features in real-time. In addition to generating <3cm accuracy point clouds in real-time, the ExynPak is also equipped with two FLIR Chameleon3 RGB cameras that are capable of colorizing points – providing yet another layer of functionality to geologic mapping and mine planning projects.
Combined with aerial mapping from our UAV’s and Aeropoint network, we can pin underground and surface LIDAR surveys to georeferenced base surveys and maps – creating a complete project that can be used for mine planning, exploration programs, and more. Burgex Mining Consultants has recently added a DJI Matrice 300 RTK (M300) to our fleet of UAVs, providing even greater capabilities for aerial data collection. Not only can the M300 collect data more efficiently than other UAVs, but it can also simultaneously carry up to three payload sensors. The M300 has a max transmission range of up to 9.3 miles with a 55-minute maximum flight time and hot-swappable batteries. The IP45 water and dust protection ratings and expanded operating temperatures will enable operation in a broader range of field conditions.
Leveraging portable LIDAR with aerial data provides a new level of flexibility in modeling for mining and mineral exploration projects that is unlikely to be offered at very few, if any, other mining consulting firms in the United States.
With our full suite of services, we can leverage data collected by the ExynPak in CAD and Carlson Mining for mine planning activities, providing a level of precision and accuracy that is unparalleled. From geologic mapping/modeling to mine planning, engineering, and exploration program management – these new tools represent the next generation of mining and mineral exploration advancements.
Burgex is excited about the addition of this new equipment and the new services we will be able to provide for our clients. From underground to the surface, we’ll be able to map your project quickly and with sub-centimeter accuracy!
