SimActive Software Used for Gold Mine Mapping

Montreal, Canada, September 3rd, 2019 – SimActive Inc., a world-leading developer of photogrammetry software, announces that Correlator3D™ is being used for gold mining projects in Ivory Coast by Newcrest Mining Limited.  SimActive software is employed to produce dense digital terrain models (DTMs) using small format digital cameras.

Newcrest Mining also extracts high-quality contours lines from the DTMs with Correlator3D™.  The accuracy of the outputs allows for precise volume calculation and leads to efficient maps for the blasting teams.

“SimActive software and small format digital images make an ideal combination”, said Francois Gervaix, Technical Advisor at SimActive.  “Due to the precise GNSS geotagging and the optimized aerial triangulation, the expected accuracy at checkpoints is consistently measured.  Our software is perfectly suited for mining projects, small or large ones. This is only one of many potential applications of Correlator3D™ for non-metric cameras.”
