Finding the Seam

Auto-Detect Geology with Drones to Improve Blasting

Incorporating accurate geological seam data into your blast design can help avoid dangerous face ejections, ore loss, and prevent dilution. Now with drones and AI it's easier than ever to add geological data to your blast design.

Join Strayos COO and blasting expert Brad Gyngell

as he discusses how Drones & AI automatically detect bedding planes, joints, and faults. Model that information on your site's digital twin. See the planes, dip angle, and strike direction, then plan the perfect blast. Hear his predictions for the future of geological detection and surveying from drones.


✔️ Best flight patterns to collect quality data for geotechnical analysis

✔️ How to use geological seam data to adjust blast loading

✔️ How Hyperspectral Imaging can be used to define ore zones

✔️ How to maintain stand-offs when cast blasting or through seam blasting

✔️ To identify soft seams in quarries

Don't miss out, Register today

so you can learn ways to reduce the risk of fly rock, potentially save millions in lost ore by ensuring proper standoffs, prevent dilution and maximize ore recovery by effectively segregating adjacent ore zones, and so much more.

See You There!
