Mining Searches UK
Mining Searches UK are one of the principle mining search providers in the UK through a comprehensive specialist reporting and survey service. Their data is interpreted by a team of specialists in history, geology, archaeology and mining.
Mining Searches applied for R&D funding to develop, test and validate a prototype system with company Perception Drones. The system would use ground penetrating radar mounted on a drone, in a way that has never been achieved before. This would enable the system to survey mine workings and underground voids.
The data captured by the system will be integrated with earth observation satellite data to create a system which can be used to predict the presence of mining features and assess mining risk.
