Our safety standards are among the highest in the industry and we have helped many of our customers improve safety in their operations
Reactive Ground Solutions
TITAN 5000 was introduced in the mine in areas where known sulfide deposits exist. In an effort to quantify the level of reactivity, extensive testing was done to assure the selected formulations are sufficiently inhibited to prevent any type of a negative reaction.
Reduced Protection in Blasting Due to Better Control of Loading
DynoConsult was called in to determine best course of action for resuming operations.
SmartShot Reduces Misfires and Costs in the Cadia Hill Open Pit
Absolute control over initiation timing allowed Cadia to expand patterns and reduce powder factors by 17% without impacting mill throughput. Through clever blast design and system flexibility, Cadia was able to optimize burden relief, allowing for the best combination of blast movement, fragmentation and dig-ability.
Surge in Safety and Efficiency at George Fisher Mine
The safety benefits, which came as the mine planned to expand its operations, included reduced exposure of personnel to vertical edges, less overbreak and improved post-blast ground conditions. The main production benefits were a more flexible stope design process, larger blasts resulting in more conventional dirt for the mucking units, fewer re-drills and quicker stope cycle times.
Use of Dyno Nobel Blast Design, DigiShot® Detonators and DYNOSPLIT® C
This Northeast aggregate quarry typically blasts using 6.5” holes on a large pattern for their aggregate needs. Future plans include moving the primary crusher from the current location into the pit. This would require a clean final wall for traffic safety.
Use of Electronic Detonators to Minimize Risks Associated with Blasting
Eliminating flyrock and misfires are necessary improvements needed for expansion at this quarry.
