Breaking new ground with inverse drop raise

AEL Mining Services recently partnered with EBJ Mining Construction to execute mechanised, inverse box hole blasting at Harmony Gold's Elandsrand Mine, which has resulted in increased safety and production.

Johan Fourie, Regional Manager at AEL, comments on the blasting of the inverse drop raise hole, “With inverse drop raising, we are able to drill the whole length of the tunnel in six days and then blast on the seventh day, reducing the turnaround time from twelve to seven days.”
