New Member Announcement: iRing Inc.


MineConnect would like to introduce our newest corporate member, iRing Inc.

iRing Inc. is a global leader in the development of underground drill & blast planning software that helps a mine improve its effectiveness and efficiency. Since 2003, the experts at iRing have been solely dedicated to the pursuit of optimizing underground drilling and blasting operations.

What they have discovered is that when they turn the blast into a repeatable industrial process then the overall costs and environmental impact are reduced substantially, at the same time allowing for increased rates of production. WIN-WIN-WIN.

iRing engineers have created a proprietary break model that can determine the most appropriate blasting design given the rock properties, explosive properties, and shockwave attenuation characteristics. The idea behind the model is to engineer a blast that produces a fragmentation distribution that allows the client to bypass crushing operations and reduce the energy consumed in grinding operations. The blasting operations are now seen as the first step in the milling process producing repeatable and predictable fragmentation, each and every time.
