Canada-based Peck Tech Consulting has signed a distribution agreement with Australian mining technology provider Haefeli-Lysnar Geospatial Solutions (HLGS).
Following the agreement, HLGS will see the addition of a mobile 3D scanning system to its product portfolio.
The scanning system, uGPS Rapid Mapper has been purpose-built for underground mining applications.
The agreement will allow Peck Tech to expand its distribution for the uGPS Rapid Mapper product and opens new opportunities for its mining operations.
Peck Tech Consulting mining solutions technical manager Andrew Chapman said: "HLGS is an established leader in the mine technology market.
"Their team of dedicated professionals has a great understanding of the challenges present in the underground mining industry, and we are pleased that they will be adding the uGPS Rapid Mapper to their product portfolio"
The uGPS Rapid Mapper mobile mapping system has been developed by Peck Tech in partnership with other industry partners, and can be used for various mining applications.
The system is applicable for volume calculations, will-it-fit analyses, shaft and raise scanning, old works mapping, as well as rapid development pick-ups.
HLGS business development manager Adnan Arslanagic said: "I am excited about the uGPS Rapid Mapper, a unique and niche technology specifically developed for underground surveying.
"Underground mines are getting bigger every day, and the rapid 3D scanning capabilities of this system can allow surveyors to keep up with this expansion."
uGPS has been designed to provide quality 3D data and is a decentralised sensor system that provides 3D point cloud acquisition capabilities on a mobile platform.
The system has an operating range from -30°C to 60°C, and offers a range of applications, right from convergence monitoring to shaft inspection.
