Cases of improving the efficiency of drilling and blasting operations based on the use of digital technologies of the MGIS GEOMIX and dispatching systems

GGIS "GEOMIX" is a Russian mining and geological information system for automating the processes of mining production and digitalization of mining and graphic documentation. This is an advanced technology designed to solve a wide range of tasks from explosion simulation to mine planning. The presentation presents a set of cases on automation of drilling and blasting design processes, using the technologies of specialized modules "BVR" and "Blast Modeling". This allows solving a whole range of the most important production tasks related to forecasting emergency situations and assessing the impact of an explosion on neighboring structures, improving the quality of ore extraction, improving the quality of mining planning, reducing economic losses, etc. It should be noted that using GEOMIX technology and integrating modules together with positioning systems on drilling rigs, it can reduce the cost of drilling and drilling from 5 to 15%.
