Rocketmine (Delta Drone Group) signs US$200K contract in Ghana, thereby expanding its position in Africa

Rocketmine, a recent subsidiary of the Delta Drone Group, is expanding its activities in Africa with the signing of two new customers in Ghana. The company has been awarded contracts for over US$ 200 000 with some of the biggest gold producers in the country.

The contracts encompass’ daily survey and mapping assignments, using a permanent on-site pilot and drone service, which would essentially survey over half of Ghana’s gold production.

Located on the edge of the Gulf of Guinea, Ghana is one of the world’s top 10 producers of gold. Alongside the ores sector, the country’s economy is largely based on agriculture and, more recently, oil, thanks to offshore deposits.

In compliance with local laws and licensing requirements, a local subsidiary has been created, located in the capital city of Accra. The subsidiary, Rocketmine Ltd (Ghana), is majority-owned by the Delta Drone Group.

On the signing of this major contract, Christopher Clark, the General Manager of Rocketmine, comments: “Thanks to years of operational experience, as well as our ability to scale the service across borders, Rocketmine provides a proven survey-grade solution that is extremely beneficial and reliable for Ghana’s mining industry. In addition, Rocketmine undertakes to employ, train and empower local Ghanaians as its pilots and operational staff, in accordance with local sustainability regulations. Thus, Rocketmine’s growth and development in Africa has the potential to be beneficial to many communities in the regions which we serve.”

Rocketmine continues to reinforce its position as the premier service provider for drone solutions in Africa, and continues to expand its activity to new mining territories and other industries.
