Blasting 76 Holes in a large Chinese Iron Ore Mine

Rockmate is helping increase the production from a large Chinese Iron Ore Mine, by employing larger blasts blasting time is converted into work time. The shovel spends more hours loading per week. Rockmate helps ensure that the fragmentation is the same the full length of the blast and the fragmentation is designed to ensure optimum loading for the shovel and optimum production through the processing plant.

In these photographs 76 holes large diameter holes were fired in 3 rows.

It has been shown by others that large blasts reduce the risk of fly rock.
