How MinBlast can help?

The wise business works tirelessly to win its customers’ hearts, not to manipulate its customers’ minds.

MinBlast Limited is a company focused on providing practical drill and blast solutions to your mining operation. Initially, we investigate your current operational practises by conducting a site audit. The site audit identifies opportunities for improvement and, generally, an Action Plan is derived from this audit.  Blast Optimisation being the key focus area of the Action Plan.  We conduct follow up audits to ensure that your team is working to the plan.  We also assist in the generation of cost benefits that can be realised from the specific actions (where these are real benefits). Our Audits also work as a  “Fresh Pair of Eyes” for you, to  provide another view of your operation. We also understand the best ways to maximise your explosives costs, from logistics, storage and price competitiveness of your supplier(s).
