See the stories below to find out how we helped make our Metal customers more productive and save downstream costs.
Redesigning Stopes for Improved Recovery of Ore
The customer was experiencing poor blast results over a substantial period of time and the under-breaking of ore left valuable material along the ribs. The mine engineers were looking for guidance on the delay times they should be using to improve the recovery of ore.
SmartShot Assists with Improving Stope Productivity at Sunrise Dam
Dyno Nobel was able to provide this mine with a solution that involved the implementation of our SmartShot® electronic initiation system. Paired with our bulk emulsion TITAN® 7000, the mine had a blasting solution to help improve productivity and reduce operating costs as well as reduce the risk of misfires and provide a flexible initiation sequence with millisecond precision.
Support Engineer for Gold Mine During Startup
Dyno Nobel supplies the explosives and provides Shot Services to a new gold mine in Northern Ontario, Canada. During the first six months of startup, a DynoConsult Field Engineer was present to provide blasting and engineering support while the mine was not fully staffed.
Using Low Density Explosives in Iron Ore Applications
Dyno Nobel developed BlastLite® and TITAN® as cost effective solutions for blasting weak to medium strength rock in Iron Ore mines. Both these products have the potential to significantly reduce powder factors and therefore, the overall cost of blasting.
