K-MINE : Drill & Blast Design



Untitled design (3)

This module is designed specifically for drill and blast design for open cast mining operations.

The software solution for drill and blast design is a set of tools that will help to:

  • Automate creation processes for drill projects (row design, blasthole spacing, parameter calculating, etc.)
  • Calculate automatically required parameters for drill blocks (numbering, depth, overdrill, incline, etc.)
  • Create and manage data sheets for drilling and blasting works (for different depths, blasthole diameters, and explosive types)
  • Perform models and 3D-vizualization of blastholes and work with them
  • Exchange data with drilling equipment for quarries, open pits, and mines
  • Define parameters for actually drilled-out blocks (defects by depth, blasthole numbering, etc.)
  • Calculate blasthole charges for drill blocks
  • Keep records of drilled-out and blasted mined rock
  • Design and automatically calculate switching assemblies, define breaks in a block by mass blasts, etc.
  • Define and visualize different hazardous areas
  • Visualize blasts of drill blocks in the open pit
  • Generate tabular and graphical documentation for large-scale blasts

Drill and blast design module provides these benefits :

  • Design and calculation of drilling blocks of any complexity, considering special features of technological operational methods and mining-and-geological conditions
  • The option to determine forecast parameters of a drill block to be blasted at the stage of its design
  • The option to exchange data with position control systems for drilling rigs, dispatcher's offices, and other systems
  • Planning and monitoring security facilities in each hazardous area
  • Correction of blasthole models according to actual drilling data
  • Significant reduction of total time required to design drilling and blasting works
  • Optimization of drilling and blasting preparation of rock mass; improving the quality of blasting processes
