[Editor’s Note: In addition to stockpile measurement, Lehigh Hanson also uses the Kespry Automated Drone System to track progress in the pit.]

Once raw material is screened, washed, and separated into stockpiles, plant personnel need to know how much of each product is available for sale. In this video, Lehigh Hanson’s Operations Analyst Mike Moy prepares to measure the stockpiles at Mission Valley Rock in Sunol, Calif., using a Kespry drone. The drone is also used to track progress in the pit.
After watching the video, be sure to read all about Mission Valley Rock in the November issue of Aggregates Manager.
