Case Study: BHP’s Olympic Dam Mine

How mobile LiDAR data delivers better outcomes at BHP’s Olympic Dam mine

BHP’s Olympic Dam mine was an early adopter of Hovermap. First deployed in Feb 2019 to map stopes, the data it generates is now being used to help de-risk the transition into new, and less well understood, mining areas.  Hovermap is providing unprecedented insights into the new rock mass, in addition to scanning stopes, drawpoints, orepasses, vertical raises and retired infrastructure. This report combines conference papers to give you a complete picture of how the Olympic Dam team maximize value from their Hovermap investment.
