Swedish mining giant LKAB suffered a significant seismic event at their Kiruna iron ore mine. Before they were able to restart operations, they needed to gain a complete understanding of the damage. AMKVO, a Swedish remote-sensing company, was called in to map the damage with Hovermap.
Watch the webinar to hear from AMKVO’s Alexander Paulusson on how:
AMKVO were able to safely map the damaged areas of Kiruna mine without exposing LKAB personnel to any danger
Mapping the production drifts took only a few days, and LKAB were able to start planning remedial works within weeks of the seismic event
AMKVO were able to capture quality point cloud output in challenging conditions
Other mines in Sweden now use the Hovermap system to scan stopes and drifts
