Through our innovative solutions, customized loading explosive systems and technology we can design more efficient blasts to improve the mining cycle reduce costs and enhance safety in underground operations.
At MAXAM, we began our activity operating in underground mines more than 145 years ago. Since then, we have continued to develop solutions adapted to our customers, overcoming every challenge.
Our experience, expertise and technical knowledge in underground mining around the world enables us to offer the best services to deliver optimal blast results.
- Drilling, loading and haulage cost savings
- Maximum advance rate per cut with minimum rock-mass damage
- Optimized rock fragmentation
- Overbreak reduction
- Dilution and ore-loss control
- Reduced re-entry times
Products & services
We deliver optimal fragmentation and full advance with less toxic fumes, controlled ground vibrations and overpressure and overbreak reduction.
With accurate timing and wide range of delays, our initiation systems provide safer underground operations while increasing efficiency.
Through our technological capabilities we offer optimum blasting design and modelling with RIOBLAST, as well as borehole deviation control thanks to RIOSENSOR.
