Improved Safety and Reduced Cost Through Implementation of i-konTM B3000 Remote Firing System

“The implementation of i-kon Remote Firing System has improved the safety of our blast personnel during firing through its capability to fire the blast remotely at further distance. The blast preparation become quicker since running a 500m firing cable to firing position is no longer required. Elimination the use of harness wire as firing cable also means cost reduction which align with our mining cost efficiency program. In overall, the system has provided great benefits to our blasting process at Grasberg”.

Drilling Productivity Improvement & Drill and Blast Cost Reduction Using Fortis™ Extra i H

The site had additional challenges with reactive ground. Previously, steaming holes had been identified and reactive ground testing of collected rock samples had confirmed the presence of reactive ground. Fortis Eclipse H was introduced to manage the reactive ground risks and had been used successfully on site for many years.

Increased blast size with controlled vibration levels

Maliakhera Mines and Karunda Mines are the captive limestone mines of JK Cement works, Nimbahera division, India. The mines are developed into multiple benches for limestone production, with Karunda mines having two different pits, North Pit and South Pit.

Overbreak control in Cavern and tunnels

The Telangana State Govt. has decided to construct the Palamuru Ranga Reddy lift irrigation scheme (PRLIS) to cater the needs of irrigation in drought-prone uplands areas of Telangana region by drawing and lifting 90 TMC of water from foreshore of Srisailam reservoir.

High Energy Centra Gold

Boral Quarries are continuously searching for ways to improve how we operate, whether this be from a safety and environmental perspective, or in a commercial sense. The trial of the higher density Centra™ Gold at Moy Pocket Quarry was performed in a professional manner - Orica personnel and Boral site staff worked together to scope out and risk assess the trial, determine the methods for capturing and assessing outcome data and performance, and implement the appropriate processes to conclude the data was representative of the outcome. The Centra™ Gold High Energy project has been an excellent example of supplier and customer working together to yield a result that has value for both parties.”
