K-MINE Module

Drill & Blast Design

  • for mining engineers and experts in D&B design for open-pit mining operations.
  • for other professionals responsible for D&B hole planning, hole charging, wiring-up, explosion hazard area design, and D&B permits.
Drill & Blast Design 1

Blocks for Blasting Operation

You can design blocks of any configuration or complexity for blasting operations.

Thanks to the flexible functionality of the module, hole patterns can be designed in several ways: by filling in the design area and by creating groups of holes row by row or single holes.

Holes Visualization

The Drill & Blast Design module provides optional capabilities to visualize holes and hole elements.

Visually rich data is always perceived better, which minimizes the possibility of error.

Drill & Blast Design 3

Geological Data

This module is preconfigured so that geology can be a driving factor when a hole pattern is selected for specific conditions.

Wireframes of various rock types are used to assign geological data.

Data Storage

With K-MINE, you can store a lot of information in just one .odf file.

The portfolio of D&B projects can represent an array of data collected and updated over time.

Historical data can be useful for exploring the cause-and-effect relationship between a D&B project and the blasting results.

Automate Data Exchange
with the Drilling Rigs

This module automatically exchanges data with the drilling rigs in an open pit.

When the design is ready, it can be sent directly to the drilling rig, and the information about the rig location can be sent to the PC of the engineer or the D&B manager.

Lots of Custom Parameters

Numerous settings in the K-MINE Drill & Blast Design module will meet all your needs.

The module offers a variety of options to achieve your targets, depending on the results you want to get.

Borehole Charge Settings

In addition, you can configure the borehole charge settings to calculate the volume of each type of explosives.

The visualization can be used as an integral part of the D&B passport, depending on in-house requirements.

Automatic Estimation of
Explosion Hazard Zones

The K-MINE Drill & Blast Design module automatically estimates explosion hazard zones, which are divided into two categories: zones hazardous for equipment and zones hazardous for people.

Wiring-up Design and Other

The K-MINE Drill & Blast Design module offers a simple and easy wiring-up design.

The module’s functionality also includes electronic detonators and explosion simulations, with initiation failure calculations.

Printout View Settings

In K-MINE, you can customize the printout view settings.

Using preconfigured templates, you can promptly issue D&B passports for approval or long-term storage.

Operational Data Calculation and Display

With the Drill & Blast Design module, you can automatically calculate and display a variety of operational data in any form you need, including block parameters, burden, spacing, block volumes, and more.

Frequently asked questions

What kind of licenses does K-MINE provide and how much are they?

K-MINE provides two types of licenses monthly or annual subscriptions and perpetual licenses. Please contact the K-MINE team to learn each module’s price.

How can the information be transferred from one module to another?

K-MINE is one stand-alone application with a single database, so no data transfer is necessary.  Different teams can have access to data according to their user rights.

Is K-MINE a cloud-based software?

No, K-MINE is a desktop application, however, upon request, our team can install access on the Windows server where we can set up a cloud infrastructure.
