The Next Frontier in Underground Blast Automation

View animation

At Orica, we see integrated and intelligent ecosystems as the future state of safe and productive mines where Automation will be a critical enabler. Our vision is to transform how drill and blast are used to unlock mining value, utilising digital and automated technologies to create safer, and more productive blast outcomes for customers.

Particularly in underground operations, the case for Automation is becoming more apparent as mines go deeper and ore bodies become more remote. Beyond our solution for safer and more productive explosives charging at the development face, Automation has the potential to shift our approach to drill and blast at the underground heading in the future.
