Leading global Mining organisations use GeoSLAM for:
From easy to use data capture, to full integration with existing workflows and software.
In difficult, demanding and hazardous environments, use SLAM to reach zero-harm.
Easy to adopt technology to benefit every part of the production cycle, without the need for a surveyor.
Rapidly and accurately map production environments under intense time pressure, without slow and labour intensive traditional surveying techniques.
We use ZEB Horizon to expedite surveying, mapping and sampling at Newrange Gold Corp., at the Pamlico project. Systematically scanning the complex, interconnected workings has generated an unprecedented 3D map of the mine workings and has resulted in greater than 50% savings to date over conventional surveying and mapping techniques

Applications and solutions
Mapping the Underground World: Critical Technology for Intelligent Mines
The last decade has seen the rollercoaster of highs and lows in the mining sector; and the volatility is likely to continue. While digital tools are readily available that help mining decision-makers do the job better, faster, safer and more cost effectively, there are still many businesses slow to embrace transformative practices. With change being a constant, forward- thinking mining operators need to embrace digital technology and drive innovation, or risk being left behind.

How one of the largest mines in the UK has adopted SLAM technology
ICL Boulby mine was one of the first mines in the world to adopt SLAM technology, having adopted GeoSLAM’s ZEB1 back in 2013. Now the mine operates ZEB Horizons for most of their survey needs.
What our customers say
‘The ZEB Horizon is a cutting-edge LiDAR scanner that we use to map all the mine tunnels for sampling. It’s a good, cost effective exploration tool for us.’
President and Chairman, Newrange Gold
‘In terms of speed and accuracy, this was a real game
changer for us!’
‘It’s critical data that
will help us lower the risk to
personnel and keep mines
