Using static and dynamic LiDAR systems we are able to map, measure, and track room and pillar progress. LiDAR and processing data allows for enhanced visualization of areas of interest and more precise volumetrics.
Shaft scanning has been used for rehab, repairs, change detection, and historical mapping. The ability to mount our dynamic LiDAR system to a cage and map shafts effectively, safely, and quickly means lower amounts of downtime in hoist operations.
With the ability to scan and map with high resolution gives Wingfield expertise in structure scanning not only on the surface but underground. Making upgrades to structures or creating blueprints that can be accessed anywhere saves time and money.
This UAV can be manually or autonomously flown to map areas that are inaccessible or lack the structural integrity for safe entry. It is commonly used for stopes and voids, failing and older or abandoned working areas, and for basic inspection.

Point cloud data captured in one hour on a two-compartment 2,000ft timber lined shaft. Data is used for rehabbing, documentation, change detection, and scoping purposes for other contractors.
Large underground mines with high roofs or backs can be challenging to check for changes or movement. The LiDAR systems used by Wingfield can scan to a range of 600 meters underground and provide real data that can be compared overtime to track movement.
Planning upgrades for underground but need to be sending information to contractors on placement of equipment or measurements? Digital twins allow you take measurements in software and avoid the cage ride to check on a measurement.
The ability to use various LiDAR and UAV technologies in the field allows us to rapidly capture data in adverse conditions while maintaining timelines for quarry updates or stockpile inventories.
