Thanks to everyone who stopped by our booth and showed interest in our products and services.
We had the opportunity here to present to a group of Ontario Members of Parliament our 3D scanning technologies and unique approaches to 3D mapping of inaccessible areas in mines.

"Minewise Technology Ltd. has developed a progressive scanning technique that allows for detailed surveys of vertical raises or shafts up to 1,250 m. The device captures 360 degree radial scans every 8 cm and utilizes an integrated fiber optic gyro to preserve the azimuth of the scanner at all times. The data can be directly imported into the mine’s 3D coordinates. “This ‘scanning during decent’ approach eliminates the shadowing of data typical of stationary scanning technologies,” said Everett Henderson, Minewise Technology’s technical manager. Using a pan-tiltzoom high-resolution color camera, companies can inspect inaccessible bore holes, raises, ore passes or cage compartments."

Minewise now provides industry with a cavity monitoring survey that far exceeds the abilities of other inspection systems found on the market today.
The system provides customers with the ability to capture High Definition video via the remote control Pan-Tilt-Zoom Camera. In the same inspection customers can collect high density 3D models of their cavities. These files easily export in multiple formats used commonly in MineCAD, Silver Screen or other CAD design environments.

New technologies enable miners to go deeper in Northern Ontario

Overcoming the challenges associated with ultra-deep mining in Northern Ontario. By Angela Harmantas
"A more common problem in underground mining is a blocked borehole. If the blockage is located at a significant depth, it can be a tedious and expensive process to address the problem. Minewise, a Sudbury-based company developed a video inspection service that consists of a camera attached to a reel that can reach up to 4,500 ft (1,370 m). The camera transmits images of the shaft to the surface to determine the nature of the blockage."

Camera Solution Probes 3,800-foot Shaft
September 01, 2012
In this months edition of Sudbury Mining Solutions Journal, Scott Haddow features an in-depth article about a recent shaft inspection we perform in a local Sudbury mine.
The challenge involved an inspection of a sealed-off abandoned shaft to assist with a feasibility study on a possible mine development project.
This wasn’t a job for a human being. A mounted camera unit was required because the company wanted to see everything in the shaft, from top to bottom, regardless of hazards.
