    CALCULATING THE COST
    OF BLAST-HOLE DEVIATION.

    INCREASE YOUR RECOVERY... AND MORE.

     

    Blast-hole deviation is a major cause of sub-optimal blasting outcomes and poor stope performance, including; reduced recovery, excess dilution and lost drilling productivity.

     

    Minnovare's Production Optimiser technology addresses the primary causes of blast-hole deviation - reducing error at the 'toe' of the average blast-hole by up to 70%. The downstream impact on most underground mining operations is significant.

     

    Check out our Calculator below to see just how much impact it could have at your operation. You can skip to the section that most affects your mine, or complete all sections to see the cumulative effect.

    THE BOTTOM LINE:
    ESTIMATED BENEFIT OF IMPLEMENTING THE PRODUCTION OPTIMISER AT YOUR OPERATION.

     

    That's the potential impact that poor drilling accuracy is having at your underground mining operation - in just a single year.

    Luckily, Minnovare's Production Optimiser technology is applicable to rigs of all makes, models and ages. Implementation and training is simple, with 24/7 support available.

    CUSTOMER SUCCESS STORY

    HAVING IMPLEMENTED THE PRODUCTION OPTIMIZER, NSR HAVE SEEN HOW THE TECHNOLOGY HAS CONTINUED TO ADVANCE THEIR OPERATIONS.

    “The Production OptimizerTM has significantly improved
    drilling productivity at Pogo. Upon first implementing
    the technology (in April 2019) we were averaging under
    20,000 drilled feet/month with two rigs.
    We’ve since added another rig, all are fitted with the
    Production OptimizerTM and we’re now averaging over
    60,000ft/month. So we’ve upgraded our fleet from
    two rigs to three, but we’ve actually trebled our
    footage, thanks to this technology”

    Zach McLeay, Sr. Production Engineer
    Northern Star Resources, Pogo.
