Multiple Hole Configuration Test Shot for Optimum Firing Time and Vibration Prediction
A quarry is advancing a bench on the level 3 North Wall towards the edge of the pit and will be blasting the closest distance towards neighboring houses that the mine will get. In order to ensure vibration levels will be below the required level, a detailed Signature Hole Analysis (SHA) was performed on a series of 5 holes with different loading configurations. This will allow the mine to achieve optimum firing times while also building a database for vibration predictions site specific to approaching neighboring houses.
Reducing Costs of Retrieving Low Alkali Aggregates
DynoConsult saved this New York Quarry $.15 per ton without increasing the amount of explosive product.
Replacing the Need for on the Ground Data Acquisition and Analysis
Experimental use of UAV’s combined with partnership involving DroneDeploy LLC 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
Successful Ramp Removal Near Primary Crusher
Dyno Nobel has serviced this granite quarry in North Carolina for many years providing a range of products and services. Recently a new mine plan was put into place where the ramp in the middle of the pit is to be removed.
Toe Investigation with Drill Quality Assurance
This quarry is 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. There have been some occurrences of toe issues and DynoConsult was asked to investigate and come up with some 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
A faster way to document inventory reconciliation was needed at this aggregate distribution center.
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.
