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.

The use of WebGen™ 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.
