After the Blast
Measuring Blast Performance with Drones and AI
We all know blasting performance has a huge downstream impact for loading, hauling, crushing and processing. However controlling this performance has traditionally been limited by the difficulty of conducting regular post-blast assessments.
Now, new technologies like drones and artificial intelligence have now made it fast, safe, and easy to measure and analyze every shot. Increase efficiency and decrease total site costs in everyday operations.
as they discuss new technologies available with practical guides on how to implement them to streamline post-blast assessment and optimize blast performance.

Brad helps mining companies maximize the value of their operations. He spent the first phase of his career helping over 100 sites optimize drill and blast activities as a mining engineer with the world's leading explosives providers Orica and Dyno Nobel.
He then expanded the scope of his support to encompass all commercial and operational functions by moving into management consulting with the top tier firm Boston Consulting Group. As COO of Strayos, Brad leads the development of AI solutions that combine visual and operational data sources to solve tangible use cases for mine operators.
Brad holds a B Eng (Mining Engineering) from UNSW and an MBA (Finance, Entrepreneurship) from Carnegie Mellon University.
Jon is a graduate from the University of Kentucky Mining Engineering program.
Upon graduation he worked for the explosive manufacturer Nelson Brothers where he primarily focused on project management and blasting optimization for coal mines and quarries. These projects ranged from bucket fill optimization to cast blast analysis.
He is now the Senior Manager of Drilling and Blasting for a metallurgical coal company.
