Lightning Risk Reduction

Lightning Risk Reduction

Eliminate the risk of unplanned initiation of explosives on a loaded blast pattern as a result of lightning hazards and gain back lost mine production time.

View how WebGen™ benefits Blair Athol and the industry

The use of WebGen™ 200 technology can eliminate the risk of lightning-induced explosion hazards in loaded blast holes, including holes that remain unstemmed. With the removal of all remaining explosives from the bench, mine sites no longer require a lightning exclusion zone to continue operations, reducing mine operation downtime that exists with the use of conventional initiating systems.
