With WebGen™, blasting challenges are significantly reduced, giving you the flexibility to maintain sleeping shots by firing on demand ensuring minimal disruptions to nearby environments. The secret lies in the absence of wires or signal tubes on the surface, making WebGen™ a truly secure and reliable solution. 

Lucas Reis, Department Head Drill and Blasting Kinross Paracatu
"In our operations, the rock blasting activity is carried out adopting several assumptions, mainly in relation to safety, community, and environment, always committed to following all the required parameters. The technological innovations provided through the partnership between Orica and Kinross provide an opportunity to optimize drilling and rock blasting techniques and designs at the Morro do Ouro mine, WebGen technology is a clear example. We are committed to ensuring excellence in our operations, positioning ourselves as a world reference operation, especially in relation to safety and social responsibility"

Firing on Demand This link will open in a new window

Reduce the number of blasting events by merging multiple WebGen™ blasts and firing in one event.

Secure when loaded This link will open in a new window

There are no in hole or surface wires, this ensures product is secure in blasthole once loaded.

Flyrock and dust suppression This link will open in a new window

Extra layer of material - clay, steel or rubber mesh, as an additional mitigation measure. Irrigation through water trucks driving over loaded blast patterns can aid in dust suppression.
