  • You are here for the next couple days to learn something about mining and I think you will be impressed with the technology the industry uses to be more efficient and safe. The technology I am going to describe was developed for the mining industry but the rest of the world is adopting it to improve the way we live.
  • In 1973 I joined the Dupont company and began a 36 year career in explosives manufacturing, testing and applications.One of the challenges I encountered was quantifying blasting results, there was just no practical way to measure how well the material was broken after a blast.
  • By now aggregate producers realized how handy it was to measure material sizes on-line and the mining industry who “makes small rocks out of big rocks until the minerals are liberated” started to see the advantages also. What started as a software based technique evolved into totally automated systems that not only measure size and shape but permit “automated process control” in many industries (mining, forestry, agriculture, chemicals, medicine, aerospace and the list goes on).
