GPS tracking software allows Operations to track the location of equipment moving in and out of mining areas, as well as to personally track miners and other personnel working in potentially dangerous areas.

Mining is a very equipment intensive business and safety is of the utmost importance. In order to keep workers, equipment and other resources safe and functioning properly, administrators and managers need a way to keep track of everyone and everything on/off the mining site.


Operation of a mining company requires coordination of many different factors. A SkyEye GPS tracking platform would be greatly beneficial to such an operation. Dispatchers would be given a variety of options to manage and direct vehicles as they enter and leave the mining site. In addition, all equipment would be secure and protected from theft and misappropriation.


With the SkyEye GPS tracking platform, mining operations could easily be made more efficient. In addition to having a live GPS solution for dispatch, users would also have access to location-based alerts generated based on customizable settings. Many of the GPS monitoring devices that are integrated on the SkyEye GPS platform give the option to add extra sensors to vehicles and equipment.

Objective Questions:

  • How do you keep track of your assets on and off of the mining site?
  • How geographically spread is your mining operation?
  • Are your company assets being used properly by your employees?
  • How do you effectively manage the maintenance scheduling of your vehicles and assets?
  • Are your employees actually on the job for the amount of hours that are being turned in for payroll?


SkyEyeGPS Technology

There are many solutions provided by SkyEye GPS that can be applied to mining. Personal tracking devices with SOS and two way calling buttons can be issued to miners for their safety. Vehicles can be equipped with GPS tracking devices that monitor a variety of conditions including temperature, fuel levels and even moisture.

Equipment can even be tracked with battery powered GPS devices. However, some mining operations take place underground, so a means of communicating information, such as a wireless network, needs to be set up within the mining space. These devices all need to be heavy duty and shock proof.

The SkyEye GPS platform can even import data from a device that has not reported for long periods of time thanks to archival features present on both the GPS device and the SkyEye GPS platform.

Interesting Facts:

  • Heavy equipment is often delivered to a jobsite and left for the duration of the job. Often times, these jobsites are unprotected and are high targets for theft.
  • A large percentage of heavy equipment operates with identical keys. These keys can be purchased on websites like ebay making it extremely easy for a potential thief to operate unsecured equipment.
