Moisture leak detection

Our technology specializes in detecting leaks in mineral and water transport pipelines.

Satellite imaging technology applied for subsurface analysis with a spatial resolution of -3 meters locates and identifies moisture caused by leaks from underground pipes, allowing for planning and expediting their repairs.

Complete water systems can be monitored and analyzed. Even leaks that are not on the surface or have not left evidence can be detected.

Maintenance personnel can then be utilized with maximum efficiency.

No on-site personnel are required for the development of this service.


Acid irrigation control on leach piles

At BM, we have satellite images generated every 3 to 5 days, with a resolution of 1.5 meters, which allows for the analysis of leach pile irrigation and even determining areas with excess moisture that jeopardize pile stability and irrigation process failure.

This technology avoids the installation of in-situ monitoring equipment such as thermographic cameras installed on monitoring towers, which have associated risks such as falling objects and falling personnel from height due to camera maintenance, in addition to the costs they entail.

This service does not require on-site personnel.


Moisture monitoring and tailings deposition

We offer a satellite constellation with daily or 3 to 5-day revisits from anywhere in the world, with a spatial resolution of 3 meters, capturing images in 4 multispectral bands within the RGB and NIR ranges, which allows for delivery in natural color.

As an example, a series of images in natural color and NDMI are provided.


Asset integrity

SAR interferometry satellite service, which allows for the identification of settlements or displacements with millimetric precision.

This technology enables the evaluation of concentrator plants, cathode plants, thickeners, pumping stations, transfer stations, and surface ducts, as well as the monitoring and control of roads, high-tension lines, railways, among other assets (critical infrastructure not operated by the site).

In addition to evaluating earth displacement due to extreme weather and/or earthquakes.


High-range cameras

Cameras with ranges of up to 20 kilometers. Automatic identification of targets with AI.

Furthermore, these cameras feature hot spot detection through dual sensors, developed based on the latest generation of technology. An embedded AI module, a hot spot detection algorithm, allows for the automatic detection of fires, vehicles, people, and other heat sources.

This service includes surveillance software as well as fire detection.

Equipment maintenance service.
