Reducing Costs of Retrieving Low Alkali Aggregates
The project scope was to segregate and remove a high alkali chemistry area, post one bench blast event, leaving good quality aggregate material for cement production.
Replacing the Need for on the Ground Data Acquisition and Analysis
Experimental use of UAVs combined with partnership involving Drone Companies is developing methodology and software to allow for rapid mapping of large areas of mines and quarries. Data collection that used to take entire days can be accomplished in less than 30 minutes.
Signature Hole Analysis to Improve Fragmentation
Faster timing produced better fragmentation and less boulders
Success Ramp Removal Near Primary Crusher
This ramp had an average of 15 feet of fill which presented more challenges with increasing burdens and keeping holes open when drilling.
Toe Investigation with Drill Quality Assurance
A new area at this mine is very uneven with varying elevations over the area of a blast pattern. There were some occurrences of toe issues and DynoConsult® was asked to investigate and come up with solutions.
Toe Issue Remedied with GPS Technology
The quarry is currently expanding into a new area and is stripping back the earth and blasting the first bench level. The new area is very uneven with varying elevations over the area of a blast pattern. Laying out a new shot has proven difficult to achieve proper hole depths for the drills. One shot will have a face height varying from 16 to 23 m, in addition to uneven surface terrain.
UAV Stockpile Evaluation
To test the accuracy of the DroneDeploy mission planning and analysis platform, a stockpile with complete access for land based measurement was chosen to compare calculated volumes of the stockpile.
Underground Loading Process Improvement
Our evaluations of ANFO and Titan 7000 loading practices helped blaster’s visualize the inside of a horizontal development hole during loading and demonstrated best loading practices. When compared, these evaluations also demonstrated Titan 7000’s higher loading density and superior water resistance compared to ANFO.
Use of Electronic Detonators to Reduce Boulders and Fines
