GeoSight NX150 CMS

GeoSight NX150 CMS provides users with an innovative solution for scanning dangerous and inaccessible cavities in underground mining operations. It allows users to perform the regular 3D laser mapping of underground voids, shafts, stopes and ore passes quickly, safely and with accuracy. Fast, real-time data acquisition decreases operator exposure time underground, reducing potential risk to the operator.

Acquired data gives insight to stope production, helps extend site usable life, reduce dilution, calculate backfill volume, and investigate backfill and blast efficiency.
