  14. dear sir I am an engineering student from mining school of Rabat – morocco, your website was very useful for me. you did a great job by sharing this knowledge please keep sharing and know that we’ll be faithful to your work. thank you

  15. Do you have any papers that detail the following:
    1. How to effect the mining process thru a Value In Use explosives program? Explosives added Value
    2. What KPIs should be tracked to demonstrate a Value in Use program is successful?
    3. What are the KPIs on other mining processes that must be kept to ensure an Explosives Value in Use program is capable of being valued as responsible for the blasting outcomes and mine’s overall improvements.
    4. How has drone muck pile surveying been translated to a blasting Value in Use program?
    5. How has a VOD monitoring translated to a blasting Value in Use program?

    Thanks for your consideration of these questions.
