Dyno Nobel’s technology solutions and Drill to Mill showcased at Copper to the World


Dyno Nobel’s premium explosives technology solutions and services are on show this week at Australia’s largest copper conference, Copper to the World in Adelaide, South Australia. 

An industry leader in blasting technology, commercial explosives and blasting services, Dyno Nobel is proud to be the conference’s Innovation Partner and provide attendees with valuable insights, including our Drill to Mill™ service offering.

Dyno Nobel’s Chief Technology Officer, Robert Rounsley said: “Copper to the World is a great opportunity for us to provide our customers and potential customers with a greater understanding of the benefits our premium technology delivers.

“Our technology solutions put the customer at the centre and drive safety, sustainability, and productivity benefits at their mine sites. This includes copper mines where our technology provides solutions to some of the challenges faced,” Mr Rounsley said.

Russell Lamont, Dyno Nobel Americas Senior Vice President, Retail Sales and Field Operations, will provide the conference with a detailed look at Drill to Mill and the benefits being delivered to customers. 

“Drill to Mill sees our Dyno Nobel experts work with customers on a customised, operationally comprehensive mining solution to optimise blast design and explosive technology application.  The result is significant value delivery in downstream processing circuits and reduced overall mining cost,” Mr Lamont said.
He said the use of Drill to Mill at a major Dyno Nobel copper customer mine drove US$58 million in value for the customer over one year by significantly increasing mill throughput.  

“In this Drill to Mill example, our premium technology was used to achieve fragmentation and productivity goals in particularly difficult ore types. This included our DIFFERENTIAL ENERGY® (∆E) and DigiShot® Plus.4G technologies, implemented through a strong partnership with customer stakeholders and our world-leading DynoConsult technical expertise.”

DIFFERENTIAL ENERGY provides the ability to vary emulsion density from hole to hole as well as vertically within each individual blasthole so that explosive energy is targeted to where it is needed. 

Copper to the World is being held on June 18-19 at Adelaide Convention Centre. Mr Lamont’s presentation is being held as part of the Dyno Nobel sponsored Plenary 5 – Creating More Value through Innovation: Unlocking Critical Copper on June 19.
