Drilling and blasting are commonly adopted techniques for overburden removal and ore excavation in opencast as well as underground mining operations. Blast hole drilling also constitutes the simplest and the most economical solution for discovering and accessing underground mineral deposits.

Choosing appropriate drill and blast methods is critical to improving mining productivity and increasing profit margins while enhancing worker and environmental safety.
