Ore Dilution – Coal Damage

Ore Dilution – Coal Damage

The Enaex Mining Technical Solutions team will work with your operation to identify the source of ore dilution and the best path to minimization.

Many times, the blast is timed to allow movement in the muckpile to increase diggability – this can be a cause of ore dilution.  Or, in the case of cast blasting in coal, the cast can damage the edge of the coal with the high powder factors that are common in casts. Whatever the cause, the team will identify the problem areas and produce a viable solution to minimize the amount of dilution while maintaining the best diggability for the equipment.
