DynoConsult used various blast instrumentation tools and design methods to conduct an in-depth audit of the stoping operations at Mina Cozamin. DynoConsult identified cost-savings and practices that could increase productivity at the mine site. Mina Cozamin could double productivity while reducing drill and blast costs by half compared to the baseline blast by using a new variable design approach. This approach would also eliminate the drilling bottleneck.
