  1. Have you ever wondered what the cutting edge mining drones are doing these days? Here is one company that gives an idea at the large scale level. They call it Hovermap. https://www.emesent.io/industries/mining/?utm_campaign=Mining Campaign Dec'20&utm_source=EDM-AM-7May2021&utm_medium=EDM-AM-7May2021&utm_term=EDM-AM-7May2021&utm_content=EDM-AM-7May2021 What if you don't have any lidar? Make your own. Does anyone know anything about placer mapping?
  2. The importance of using a good quality metal detector suitable for prospecting has been widely explored in great detail. The introduction of the GPX 6000 highlights the gains in technology and thank goodness, ergonomics. Weight and Balance, at last. Matched by performance and cutting edge technology.. The one fact remains that at the end of the day the key is to get the coil over the gold. Some truly magnificent gold that has been found, could have been detected by any half decent prospecting machine. Still we should invest in quality and the new Minelab sounds superb. We need to utilize ever
  3. This is a really great paper describing how you can use the latest technology (AI) and algorithms to locate meteorites. Now just imagine what else you can find if you have the time and knowledge. There are a few here on this forum who will be enlightened by this article but certainly not surprised. It is just a matter of time that we process massive amounts of data quickly. https://arxiv.org/pdf/2009.13852.pdf
  4. I'm looking into getting a quadcopter for photogrammetry, but have no experience with them at all. Are there specific features that are better than others? What kind of camera resolution is best, and are shutter speeds and drone stability usually good enough to capture good quality, usable photographs? I'm at the beginning of my research, so any tips and recommendations would be greatly appreciated. I saw some information about drones in this article: https://thedigitalcamera.net/best-drones-with-camera/, please tell me which is the best.
  5. Simon do you have one of these? or have you set up the QED on a Drone already
  6. Recently my wife and daughter gave me a drone for my birthday. Being a bit of a technical dinosaur, I am still getting the hang of it. These things seem to be rapidly advancing, and it occurred to me that it may provide a way of seeing what is over the next hill without all the footwork. Seeing how America seems to be leading the way with this technology, this seemed to be the ideal place to pose this Question. Any ideas?
  7. Amyone on the Forums have any drone experience yet? just wondering.....This guy does. Enjoy! Cheers, ig
  8. I wish they had been a bit more adventurous with distance from base camp with this but it gives at least an idea of the possibilities....
  9. Is there anyone on here that use a Drone to survey the area you plan on nugget hunting are coin hunting ? I was thinking about getting one to look over land that has a lot of trees that could have a old home site you can't see from the road. I'll let you know up front I don't go where I don't belong. If I do find something of interest then I'll spend the time looking for the owner. Drones are like detectors and that is just how much money you want to spend. Chuck
  10. This seems like an amazing possibility for prospecting off road, hard-to-get-to areas.
  11. Ok guys, I've been working really hard on this new video. I think it truly shows what treasure hunting is all about! We used the new dji Phantom 4 drone to scout out an old 1800's underground house that was across the creek from us. The footage is my best yet and I even took the time to play guitar for all the backing tracks. Hope you enjoy this edition on "Off the Grid Treasure Hunting"... Now... Let's get lost!
  12. Who's going to be the first to use a drone scout up that wash that you'd love to hike up but crap it's warm your old it's nearly vertical geewhiz I still like to have a look! Seriously Dash anybody thinking of using drones to scout out likely New terrain?
  13. You guys have great Google Earth coverage down here. It is nearly useless in Alaska and I would have been thrilled to have this alternative. As it was I was lucky enough to have a father with an airplane I could talk into doing aerial photography runs. Aerial views can be incredibly handy in rough terrain, or terrain with lots of trees. Anything that stops you from seeing what is "over there". It is so easy to miss stuff wandering around on foot. As I noted, Google Earth is a huge aid, but it is not perfect. The best time to see stuff is when the leaves are off, and often Google Earth ove
