GeoSLAM for Mining

Rapid site information for the modern mine


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 help achieve your zero-harm targets.  


Operational Optimisation

Easy to adopt technology to benefit every part of the production cycle, without the need for a surveyor.  

Operational optimisation


Rapidly and accurately map production environments under intense time pressure, without slow and labour intensive traditional surveying techniques.  

Why GeoSLAM?

  • Rapid scanning – Slash survey times with easy-to-use technology. Anyone on site can map accurate tunnel profiles, stockpile volumes, pits and caves in minutes.
  • Specialist design – Your mining tools should help, not hinder, which is why GeoSLAM is designed to work in all environments, with ratings up to IP64 level for dust and damp.
  • Go-anywhere mapping – Our tech is designed to be used in complex spaces, even where GPS isn’t available. Walk with the handheld or attach it to a trolley, drone or vehicle.
  • Safety as priority – We help you achieve your zero-harm targets by safely scanning underground, inaccessible and dangerous environments, even remote and hazardous areas.
  • Express data collation – Whether you need to process data on the go, or in the comfort of your office, our software rapidly creates 3D models, workflows and geo-reference datasets.
  • Save time and money – With GeoSLAM, data capture and modelling is up to 10x faster, allowing you to successfully complete projects in minimum time with little or no disruption.

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

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.
