In this episode, we chat with Richard Papp, Managing Director at UNEXMIN Geo-Robotics, a company that is a private spin-off arising from the U-NEX-MIN project and that has the IP of the robotic platform they have produced.
The company is pioneering surveying solutions for flooded environments. During the podcast, Richard, who has a background in geology and geophysics, is going to talk about the exciting and innovative advances they are making in geo-robotics. Including, how this can be used in the mining sector in both underground and open-pit mines. Providing solutions for areas of any type of mine that are under water.
‘In the European Union, there are 30,000 closed mines that could now be viable again. Many of them are flooded. ´
‘Based on the scientific data we collect we can make extremely detailed 3D models.’
‘By using multispectral and hyperspectral cameras it is also possible to detect what minerals are left in the mine.’
