Red Dog Operations saves US$6.5 million through blast movement monitoring
Teck’s Red Dog Operations, one of the world’s largest zinc mines, saves an estimated $6.5 million annually through blast movement monitoring.
Teck employs our technology at three of its open-pit properties: Red Dog Operations (Zinc), Highland Valley Copper and Carmen de Andacollo (Copper and Gold). By accounting for blast movement, the mines recover more ore from every blast, increase recovered tonnes and improve reconciliation.
Teck outlines how blast movement monitoring helps the operations reduce processing costs, improve productivity and improve environmental performance through better energy efficiency.
“The information we get from the blast movement sensors allows us to track the movement of ore in greater detail than ever before, leading to improved productivity and sustainability at our operation,” said Brian Hall, Geologist at Red Dog Operations.
