Blast Movement Technologies has devised the Blast Movement Monitoring (BMM) System, which provides a hardware and software solution for surface mines to track the movement of the ore polygon post blast. The BMM System is comprised of a suite of products that accurately measure three-dimensional blast movement so that displacement of high-value ore can be accounted for before digging.
In essence, the BMM is a form of blast-proof transmitter that is activated automatically when it senses a blast. The system then uses a highly precise inbuilt GPS detector to identify the post-blast location via transmitter after the blast. Tracking the travel of these transmitters allows BMT to create a vector field of rock-mass movement. This data is transmitted wirelessly to the mine offices, and calculated by BMT’s ‘BMM Explorer’ software. Once the new data has been collated, new dig lines are produced from the software with a more accurate picture of where the ore’s new location is.
