Pioneer Aerial Surveys, a subsidiary of Vancouver, British Columbia-based Global UAV Technologies Ltd., has signed a drone survey contract with mineral exploration company Quantum Pacific Exploration (QPX) in Chile.
Pioneer Aerial will deploy its aeromagnetic UAV-MAG survey solution starting in August.
The company says it recently completed a survey for Silver Standard Resources at its Seabee Gold Operation in Northern Saskatchewan. Pioneer Aerial completed a high-resolution, low-elevation survey over the Santoy deposit and overlapped the imagery with previous airborne data. According to Pioneer Aerial, the UAV-MAG survey provided higher-resolution results at a lower cost in comparison to conventional airborne or ground-based survey methods.
The new deal marks the first UAV-MAG survey in South America and the third international survey for Pioneer Aerial.
