Delta Drone International enters Niger with virtual 3D model baseline survey for GoviEx Uranium

Delta Drone International (ASX:DLT) is set to enter the Niger market for the first time with uranium explorer and developer, GoviEx Uranium, to perform a virtual 3D model baseline survey for its potential new Madaouela mine in the West African country.

The baseline survey will be one of the first times Delta Drone International uses its advanced drone surveying and data capture technology to create a shareable view of a potential mining site to share with GoviEx Uranium stakeholders who are unable to attend the site due to current travel restrictions, and for use by the engineering teams for project construction design.

GoviEx Uranium (TSX-V:GXU) is a Toronto-listed mineral resource company focused on the exploration and development of its uranium properties in Africa, including the mine-permitted Madaouela Project in Niger, as well as the Mutanga Project in Zambia and the exploration at Falea Project in Mali.

Over a two-week period, Delta Drone International’s specialist mining pilots will deploy state-of-the-art surveying drones, with the data captured to be used by GoviEx Uranium as the base to build a virtual 3D model of the new site and consult with key international stakeholders, virtually.

Commenting on the project, Delta Drone International CEO, Christopher Clark said:

“This is the first time Delta Drone International has been commissioned for a project in Niger – a region where aviation, including drone operation, requires military clearance. This project with GoviEx Uranium is an example of the many ways drones are being used to more efficiently share the data needed to guide decision making among business leaders.”

“Working with the GoviEx Uranium team right from the planning phase of their new mine ensures we can seamlessly collate multiple data sets of areas where low-quality, outdated or even no data is available, export it into easy-to-utilise formats and virtually share with their international stakeholders – removing the need for onsite attendance. This type of data capture is likely to be increasingly used in remote sites to support much more efficient and timely stakeholder engagement and decision making around key milestones in projects.”

“We look forward to working with GoviEx Uranium to make their new mine a reality by providing them with accurate, cost-effective data performed by specialists in the mining field.”
