Event 38 recently completed a case study on the use of drones for mining and quarry applications. In cooperation with a customer operating dozens of quarries, we compared and analyzed the accuracy and resource cost of using the E384 and Drone Data Management System™ with manual measurement to determine stockpile volumes. We found that switching to drone data collection reduced the required man-hours by approximately 60% while producing results within 2% of manual measurement.
