Blast Audits and Optimisation
Our blasting experts assess the quality of blast design and implementation with the information collected from site and provide an insight into problems in blast fragmentation, excavator productivity, ore loss/dilution and damage. These observations provide practical solutions to improve the blasting process. Data analytics is a key component of drill and blast improvement through the integration of geological, blast design, fragmentation and load and haul data.

Dilution and Ore Loss Management
The management of ore loss and dilution is an important aspect of productivity and
efficiency at mines. Blasting allows the ore to be efficiently excavated and
processed. Another effect of blasting is that the material being blasted will
experience some movement, thereby causing an offset between the orebody and
the resource model. Depending on the distribution of ore throughout the blast,
failure to take this movement into account when excavating will have significant
economic consequences in terms of ore loss and dilution.
mines. Electronic blasting system is one of the major tools that we use to
deliver improved ore/waste segregation.
