Detonators: Best-for-project practices in drill and blast

Tying in a blast hole

Embracing electronic initiation systems to deliver better blasts

As the mining industry becomes increasingly lean, a ‘one size fits all’ approach is becoming increasingly obsolete. A commitment to finding ways to do things better, faster and more cost effectively – is how asset owners and contractors are ensuring their ongoing success.

In drill and blast, developments in detonation systems have provided forward thinkers with an opportunity to dramatically enhance their blast capability. Highly tailored blasting solutions, with the potential for significant cost and productivity benefits, are now being implemented by many teams and contractors willing to invest in increasing their knowledge base.

Trialling new electronic initiation technologies and selecting technology based on what is best-for-project must be front-of-mind for any drill and blast team.
