Datablast

Improve your blasting productivity, quality and governance

DataBlast is a multi-user system covering the entire drill and blast process from design to in-field operations. Electronically transfer data, respond to changes in real time, and generate reconciliation reports. Identify trends and improve blasting performance over time.

Productivity

Optimise blasting outcomes with DataBlast. We give you the tools to closely manage and respond to changes in the field. Transfer work instructions and field observations electronically to minimise mistakes and deliver information to the right people instantly. Use the reporting features to track results over time and improve dig rates and fleet productivity by consistently delivering the right fragmentation.

Quality

Rapid, error-free electronic transfer of information between engineering and operations reduces errors when drilling and charging holes. Any variance or observation is electronically logged and delivered back to the master database. At each stage of the process, the drill and blast engineer has an opportunity to adjust the plan and still deliver the desired blasting outcome.

Governance

The DataBlast system is built on the foundation of a single central database. All data for current and previous blasts is stored and retrievable through standard and ad-hoc reports. The inventory module allows you to track explosives products through the magazine and assign products to specific blasts. As a manger it is reassuring to know there is a complete transparent and auditable record of all blasting activities on site for the life of the mining operation.

01.

3D Drill Holes

Realise the potential of true 3D drillhole and trench traces, without the inherent bias of cross-sectional representations

02.

Quick Rendering

Quickly render drillholes and trenches with the same lithology and assay legends

03.

Design

Dynamically design and refine drillholes to test specific targets and models at depth, such as geophysical and block model anomalies, or potential extensions to mineralisation.

KEY FEATURES

DataBlast is a complete blasting system that covers all your requirements across planning and operations. Effectively design and implement your blasting plans to achieve consistent high quality results every time.

Design

Comprehensive CAD capability to import data and create drill patterns automatically or manually.

Inbuilt validation tools to check burden distances to free faces in 2D and 3D.

Generate paper based drill sheets or use our digital export options to deliver instructions electronically directly to the drills or BlastPad

Measure

Use multiple sources of data from the field to update designs and deliver the most effective charge plan to operations.

Cater for drill logs, collar surveys, wireline data, dip sheets and any other source of data related to the as-drilled holes.

Charge

Create charge plans based on site-specific charging standards that can be configured and modified for each mine site and blast type.

Cater for all scenarios from simple charge plans right through to multi-deck through-seam blasting.

Deliver information directly to the field through BlastPad and efficiently collect the as-charged information in order to adjust plans on the fly and deliver the best outcome every time.

Initiation

Comprehensive support for electronic and non-el products.

Design multiple tie-up scenarios and compare the results visually with animations, timing contour relief plots, vibration prediction and instantaneous charge analysis.

Export your final initiation plan directly to electronic detonation system hardware such as Orica i-kon and Davey Bickford Daveytronic.

Reporting

Several types of reporting are available with the DataBlast system.

Context-sensitive reports are generated automatically throughout the drill hole lifecycle, covering the likes of drill-hole accuracy to defined tolerance limits, charge weight design/actual comparisons and other tools to help control quality and respond to issues as they arise.

Longitudinal reporting allows results to be compared over time, isolating issues or trends that can then be addressed. An example would be a particular driller that has poor accuracy outcomes.

The reporting services in DataBlast allow any set of standard or ad-hoc reports to be created so that the site can gain the greatest business benefit from the 50+ data points associated with every blast hole.

Inventory

Track explosive products and their movement through the magazine. Allocate to specific blasts and track the delivery of products to the shot.

A useful tool for predicting demand, managing stock levels and providing a governance reporting layer across explosives movement and consumption.
