Drones in Mining - Transforming the Mining Sector in Bulgaria
The unmanned aerial vehicle of F&F Consult Bulgaria performs aerial mapping and research of mining sites, using modern technology created specifically for this purpose. We serve public and private enterprises to improve the efficiency and productivity of significant industrial sites and customers.
Data collection is 30 times faster and in order to minimize the risks to staff safety.
Generating comprehensive, high-quality volumetric information with millions of measured points;
Helps streamline work as fewer people can cover larger areas;
Minimize human and operational errors.
Free software can be used to measure volumes and surfaces, as well as to determine the coordinates of points. We provide introductory training of staff to work with spatial data.
We can help with
WE PROVIDE DETAILED DIGITAL RECREATION OF CAREERS AND TAILORS;

Regardless of your work in the construction, mining or aggregate sector, stockpile management is a must. Assigning your workforce for stockpile measurement can be hazardous, time-consuming and costly. All stockpiles vary in shapes and sizes, making it challenging to estimate their volumes with high accuracy through traditional methods. Instead, the most optimal resolution would be to use high-quality drones to accumulate survey data. We advance stockpile volume estimation with 99% accuracy and further defeat issues concerning mine operations and personnel safety.
BETTER INVENTORY TRACKING AND FINANCIAL REPORTING
С опита и възможностите на нашите ГИС експерти ние трансформираме данни от проучване с Безпилотни летателни системи (БЛС) в 3D модели и 3D облачни карти на терена.
These include thousands of points that lead to very detailed calculations of yield volumes. The data are essential for mining companies for monthly follow-up or year-end audits.
MINE MONITORING AND OPERATION PLANNING
We encourage mining site managers to outline and maintain site operations efficiently. Our highly accurate UAV data and GIS maps help design haul roads accurately, optimize traffic flow and initiate team collaboration to ensure quick decision making to restore and retain safety.
HAUL ROAD OPTIMISATION
Periodic inspection and assessment of haul roads are vital to ensure the smooth running of mining operations. Our skilled GIS crew produces various GIS maps like DTM, 3D Models, 3D Point Clouds, color Slope Maps, etc. to provide excellent and valuable knowledge such as length, slope and turning angles to mine managers. With this information, our clients can optimize the roads and significantly diminish fuel costs for moving materials out of mining sites.
TAILINGS DAMS MONITORING
Working with mining company planners, we promptly collect and present UAV data to systematically monitor essential mine features such as slopes on Tailings Dams. Tailings are said to be highly toxic and probably radioactive as well; thus, mine managers and planners need to guarantee consistent maintenance of dams for utmost safety through UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) Inspections. Our UAV can accumulate imagery of the dam to generate 3D Digital Elevation Models (DEM) of the dam for in-depth analysis.
