Precise, Innovative, Sustainable Mining Technology.
Sustainable Mining By Drilling (SMD) is transforming how to mine, and is a new better, solution that’s smarter, greener and exceptionally cost-effective.
We’re creating an integrated network of intelligent, cloud-based systems, software and devices to power SMD’s “Keyhole Surgery”, precision-guided mining. Tech-driven, surgical mining that uses high resolution imaging to identify vein and host rock interfaces, and adapts, intuitively. Boosting existing site potential by unlocking previously inaccessible or unprofitable zones – and extending that potential to globally abundant sites rich in small-scale near surface narrow vein mineral deposits.
SMD uses a unique downhole directional vein-sensing tool, steering, proprietary algorithms and industry-proven drilling technology to surgically mine your deposit. Minimizing environmental impact. And maximizing safety and profitability by extracting only ore.
And the waste? We leave that where it belongs: in the ground.
Sustainable Mining By Drilling also dramatically reduces a mine’s carbon footprint, using less energy and emitting less greenhouse gases.
