James Dampney, Drill & Blast VP, and Jeff Loeb, Drill & Blast Portfolio Manager, discuss the new MineMeasure portfolio.
Drill and blast presents mines with two main challenges: First, it’s a complex, multi-layered, process that can be difficult to get right. Small errors at any stage compound to create costly consequences later. Secondly, ore grades are declining. Mines are digging more earth for less ore. Preventing ore loss by even one percent can mean millions of dollars for a mine. Combining technical expertise, integrated solutions, and enterprise analytics, Hexagon has introduced MineMeasure to help mines make each blast smarter than the last.
