Comprehensive blasting analyses are focused on the short and long term, with the objective of obtaining fragmentation sizes that minimize the combined cost of the start-up, material handling and comminution processes, but at the same time cause the least damage to the rock mass, protecting the integrity of benches and slope stability (geotechnical design versus sustainability of the mining business) and a risk-free operation, through compliance with the mine plan.
