Glencore Kidd Operations Stope Mapping

How Emesent Hovermap technology is helping Glencore improve its understanding of stope conditions at the Kidd Operations mine site.

Kidd Operations mine in Ontario, Canada, operates at depths below 3,000 m with high ground stress and deformation. Optimizing stope performance relies on accurate geotechnical data, captured by autonomous Hovermap flights. Kidd Operations use Hovermap throughout their operation to conduct remote inspections and keep personnel away from hazards.
