A New Workflow to Increase Drilling Accuracy Using PPK Drones and GPS Smart Drills - Webinar Summary
Designing and implementing a precise drill plan is critical for achieving an optimal blast outcome. In recent years, GPS Navigation Drills have enabled pinpoint accuracy for drilling operations. However, the major blocker for
Webinar Summary- Optimizing Fragmentation Using Measure While Drilling and 3D Analytics Data
Traditionally, drilling data has been difficult to capture and combine with blast design information. Now, new technologies like 3D image analysis and Measure While Drilling(MWD) data allow blasters and site managers to "see" inside the bench in ways never before possible.
Business in the Covid-19 Era : Social Distancing in Mining, Quarrying and Infrastructure industry
Covid-19 has ground the US and world economies to a standstill. Governments and businesses everywhere are enacting increasingly extreme measures to try to slow the spread. Multiple states and companies are now requiring
Digital Geology: A Key to improve blast performance
Importance of Rock Mass properties Rock mass properties have a substantial influence on blasting outcomes. Blasting outcomes including fragmentation is sensitive to geological conditions. Large scale features such as bedding planes, joints, faults,
Power of analytics in improving rock fragmentation
Blasting is the most economical technique to achieve rock fragmentation in mines and quarries. The main objective of blasting is to realize the fragmentation in the desired size. Analytics can be of help in several considerations by providing a better understanding of the process.
