On-Demand Webinar: How to improve blasting practices in mining operations with vibration and air pressure monitoring

Jul 25, 2023


As the demand for raw materials continues to grow, mining remains one of the United States’ most important industries, producing $90.4 billion in mineral commodities in 2021. Mining activities, whether underground or surface, generate vibration that must be monitored to ensure safety and regulatory conformance.

Blasting with explosives to fragment rock produces vibration and air overpressure that can damage nearby structures and machinery, create stability problems inside the mine and injure worksite staff.

Careful design upfront, along with verification with a blasting monitoring system can help mitigate risks.

Join Barth Jacquot, Syscom Instruments, and Polly Brown, Terra Insights, for a 40 minute workshop where you will learn how monitoring vibration and air pressure can improve mining practices.

This webinar covers:

  • How air pressure and vibration monitoring can save cost during mining operations
  • How state-of-the-art blasting monitoring systems can help with safety and norms regulatory conformance
  • Overview of Syscom’s MR3003BLA and ROCK devices, with Syscom Cloud Software (SCS) with real site examples and installation best practices
  • Interactive question and answer session with monitoring experts
