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.
Making Depleted Deposits Profitable by Increasing Extraction Efficiency
Better extraction methods create better yields. As ore deposits become increasingly depleted and of lower quality, mines must become more efficient at accessing the remaining ore in order to maintain profitability while keeping commodity costs low enough to feed demand.
