Delta Drone International (DLT) has secured a five-year renewal for its aerial data services contract with mining and metals giant South32.

Worth around $2.7 million, the extended agreement comes after six years of Delta providing mine surveying and real-time data collection services in South Africa, where South32 operates two manganese mines and an alloy smelter in the Kalahari Basin of the Northern Cape, as well as the Hillside Aluminium smelter in Richards Bay.

Delta Drone chief executive Christopher Clark said the reappointment is testament to both the company's Rocketmine brand and its people on the ground.

"Having a tailored data solution specifically for the mining industry allows us to remove any challenges that come with aerial data collection such as rapid technology advancements and rules and regulations and allows our customers to focus on their core business operations," he said.

"By offering a full fleet of state-of-the-art drones capable of a magnitude of data collection tasks, along with the latest software and fully qualified pilots, we can solve a range of challenges our mining customers face."

The renewed deal comes after a separate contract was signed in May through Delta's safety specialist brand ParaZero, under which the company will provide its SafeAir drone parachute technology to South African mining company Kumba Iron Ore.

That, in turn, came just a week after Delta expanded its training operations into Namibia, where it plans to deliver advanced drone operations training for enterprise companies.

"Our ability to quickly pivot and provide services outside our core remit to solve additional data challenges is a real bonus for our customers and will become a must-have for businesses looking to outsource data services in the future," Mr Clark added.

Delta Drone International is down 3.85 per cent to 2.5 cents per share at 1:29 pm AEST.
