Our team of world class mining professionals provide you with holistic solutions to improve the overall performance of your mining operation.
Dilution and Ore Loss Management
The management of ore loss and dilution is an important aspect of productivity and efficiency, particularly in structured orebodies. JKTech uses tools, developed by JKMRC/BRC, to measure and model blast induced movement and develop practices in conjunction with site to minimise ore loss and dilution.
Open Cast Blast Optimisation
Open cast blast optimisation solutions also make use of the JKMRC/BRC tools to understand the effect of blasting on coal loss and coal fines, and then optimise blast design to increase overall profitability. This methodology has been successfully applied at several large open cast coal mines and resulted in significantly improved coal recoveries.
Blast Audits and Optimisation
Blast audits assess the quality of blast design and implementation and provide an insight into problems in blast fragmentation, diggability and damage. The audit results combined with JKTech knowledge and tools such as JK Blast Movement Monitors, provide practical solutions to improve the blasting process. Data analytics is a key component of drill and blast improvement through the integration of geological, blast design, fragmentation and load and haul data.
Mining Productivity Analytics
Data analytics is a key component of drill and blast improvement through the integration of geological, blast design, fragmentation and load and haul data. Photographic techniques enable the analysis of fragmentation distribution resulting from blasts while high speed filming provides valuable quantitative information about how rock structure, firing sequence, burden movement and explosives energy interact to affect fragmentation and muckpile information. Analysis of such data provides insights, knowledge and direct feedback to operations enabling consistent high performance.
