QUARRIES & MINES

EVERY OPERATION IS DIFFERENT, THAT'S WHY WE OFFER A WIDE RANGE OF SOLUTIONS.

Integrated Geotechnical Solutions’ monitoring services make data collection simple and reliable, so you can be sure that you are always within compliance regulations. Your operation will receive the readings by email or text within minutes of the blast, often before the all clear has been given.

Our philosophy is to be PROACTIVE, not reactive. We work with your team to discuss and provide recommendations on blast optimization strategies, public relations and best practice solutions for dealing with complaints. We will also work with local property owners to raise awareness about blasting, ease tensions and reduce damage related claims.

Our extensive product offering allows us to custom design a solution that fits your needs. We offer equipment to record everything from vibration and air overpressure to wind direction, dust and noise. Our system is scalable and designed to adapt to your operation as it evolves.

IGS provides both on-site and remote options for compliance monitoring. Our monitoring services send near real-time events to ensure compliance and provide documentation that aids in complaint resolution. Monitoring systems can include; vibration, noise, dust, weather and other variables.

BLAST OPTIMIZATION

A well-designed blast can reduce the impact on neighbours AND maximize production. Our blast optimization program looks at hole-to-hole interaction, timing patterns and the distance between holes and rows to more efficiently use the energy produced by the blast.

A signature hole analysis takes a single hole waveform and determines the proper timing between holes and rows, to improve frequencies and peak particle velocities. A signature hole analysis takes the local geology into account when selecting timings to improve blast performance.
