“GeoMagDrone”: Chile will use drones for its mining explorations
A worldwide mining trend is aerial geophysicsa discipline that, through the use of drones, allows the geology of a given area to be recognized, studying from the height the structure and composition of the land and the agents that modify it . It is used in countries such as Canada, Australia and South Africa, and is now also present in Chile.
The national company GFDas, founded by Lorena Banchero and Gonzalo Yáñez, developed “GeoMagDrone” system, a platform for recording geophysical subsoil data, whose information is collected by means of drones from a height of 30 meters.
The solution proposes a more reliable and economical way to prospect in depth and evaluate its potential exploitation.
