Case Study: Productivity and Operational Continuity through wireless initiaition technology (pdf 1.1MB) This link will open in a new window

How can wireless initiation unlock operational constraints? In this demonstration, WebGen™ increased blasted material within the available blasting window by approximately 285% (~296,000 tonnes), without adversely affecting blasting outcomes. The noise and vibration levels of each blast were within theappropriate and expected ranges agreed on with the communities and defined by the country's regulators.
