Dawson is located at the southern end of the Bowen Basin in Central Queensland near the town of Moura, approximately six hours drive North West of the city of Brisbane.

The mine is one of QLD’s longest established coal mines and is currently owned through a joint venture between Anglo American and Mitsui Coal Holdings and is managed by Anglo American.

Through-Seam Blasting Optimisation

Through the introduction of i-konTM II electronic detonators and the collaboration between the Orica Technical team and the Dawson Drill and Blast team, significant improvements have been made to through-seam blasting practices in the Terrace. Through-seam blasts in the Terrace have demonstrated more consistent blast movement and lower signs of visible coal disruption. With increased focus and improvements in mining practices from Dawson operations and a substantial input from the Dawson technical department, a significant increase in coal seam recovery has occurred, representing a significant increase in value to Dawson operations.

Talison Minerals operate the Greenbushes Mining Operation adjacent to the small town of Greenbushes, 240 km South of Perth. The hard rock operation requires regular blasting in order to efficiently excavate the target minerals Spodumene and Tantalum. The close proximity of the Greenbushes Township has required implementation of specific blasting initiatives aimed at reducing the impact of airblast on the town.

Reducing Vibration with uni tronic™ Electronic Blasting System - PT Kayan Putra Utama Coal – Separi, Indonesia

KPUC Separi site management and Orica have been working together on an advanced blasting technology introduction program, with the aim to improve blasting performance at site and opportunity to reduce drill & blast cost.

Some areas at the mine site have been identified to be environmentally sensitive due to being located near local villages. Failure to meet local environmental standards may impact KPUC’s license to operate.
