Blast design is a critical component of blast optimisation and maximising productivity as well as ensuring safe and efficient blasting.
Blastcon can provide blast design services to meet the client needs from the supply of Drill and Blast Engineers on a contractual basis, to pre and post blast design review and assessment of blast performance.
Blastcon uses JK Simblast 2DBench software which Glenn has been involved from the development stages with JKMRC (Mike Higgins – Soft-blast) when he was with Dyno Nobel’s Technical Services team.
Blastcon recently conducted blast design review for a client which involved the analysis of several blasts at the mine. Due to the level of detail of the report, the client successfully negotiated blast improvement programs and cost optimisation with the contractor with no objections. The following is an extract from the Mine Operations Manager email;
