Surface Mining

While coal over-burden ‘casting’ and iron ore and copper open-pit mine production blasting, amongst others, all require use of large amounts of low density and relatively inexpensive ANFO explosives, Gasblaster can still play a significant role in making your mine more efficient.

 

There a number of areas where low explosive precision blasting can help:

  • Low bench (short fitch) controlled blasting, perimeter control and dilution minimisation

  • Control of highwall integrity – the prevention of micro-cracks

  • Reduction of over-fragmentation in high value ore blasting

  • Blasting in areas where vibration, noise and air-blast control are paramount, i.e. for work in environmentally sensitive areas

  • Managing coal fines and preventing shattering of precious stones

  • Under specific circumstances improving fume characteristics

  • Limited scale rock excavation in specific local areas of the bulk operation which will prevent interruption of other processes
