Here is one of the deepest mines we have ever scanned. From surface to floor it was over 200m deep!

You can get an idea of the scale by the size of the heavy machinery working on the lower benches.

This site had to be flown lower than normal in order to obtain the required GSD at the pits floor!

Drone scans are saving operations like this from costly and dangerous surveys, preventing personnel from working around the break lines.
