Geophysical Surveys Improved with Airborne LiDAR

Goldspot Team with RIEGL VUX-240 airborne laser scanner integrated into the VPX-1 pod mounted to their helicopter

LiDAR News recently published an article featuring an interview with Chase Wood who is the Data Acquisition Manager for Goldspot Discoveries Corp. (Goldspot), a mining and mineral exploration company that focuses on geophysical surveying. In 2021, Goldspot made the decision to add airborne data acquisition and LiDAR scanning to their portfolio and built a team to manage this new implementation into their geophysical surveys. Goldspot is utilizing a RIEGL VUX-240 Airborne Laser Scanner fitted into the RIEGL VPX-1 Pod mounted onto their helicopter, allowing them to obtain high-resolution LiDAR and photo data hundreds of meters above ground level.

Learn more in the full article below on how Goldspot, along with RIEGL scanners, are improving the way surveying is done within the mining and mineral industry. This opens the door for their company to branch out into many other opportunities such as construction and engineering projects, forestry, and powerline surveys.

About Goldspot Discoveries Corp:

Mineral exploration is not a new business. But with a stalled rate of discoveries, the global supply chain is faced with dwindling supply and surging demand. With fewer, smaller and more expensive discoveries, the industry is finally doing things differently.

We are going deeper, exploring complexities and searching undercover.

Geoscientists have circled these targets over the past 70 years, applying exploration methods that produce layers and layers of valuable data, yet impossible to effectively process by the human brain alone.

At GoldSpot, we live and breathe this data and unlock economic potential through a variety of machine learning applications. We turn your data into actionable Smart Targets. In the race to make a discovery, we give you back time, save you money and produce far more accurate results than ever before possible.
