Detonators: Best for Project Practices in Drill and Blast

As the mining industry becomes increasingly lean, a ‘one size fits all’ approach is becoming increasingly obsolete. A commitment to continuous improvement – 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 […]

How an Integrated Drill & Blast Service Can Reduce Project Costs

Many mining projects engage a blast hole drilling contractor and a blasting supplier.  Despite these work activities appearing to be separable they are unavoidably dependent on one another. The blast design dictates the drilling requirements, which means an inefficient blast design can increase drilling costs.  Poor drilling quality and accuracy can negatively impact a blasting […]

How Technical Advances in Drill & Blast are Improving Efficiency and Safety

Drill and blast has come a long way in recent years driven by an industry-wide need to improve safety and efficiency. With enhanced software, advanced drill equipment, innovative explosives and superior detonation techniques we’re now able to achieve highly precise blasts, reducing dilution and delivering higher quality ore – and more safely. Enhanced software Advanced […]
