Often regarded as the cornerstone of geotechnical operations, drilling and blasting involves drilling into rock, inserting explosives, and detonating the explosives for maximum effect and minimum undesired results such as flyrock, unplanned rock falls and rock damage.
Specialists in precision design, drill and blast for resource extraction and civil works, and production design, drill and blast, Geotech are experts in the containment of blast effects using ground stabilisation techniques.
Geotech have invested and maintained a range of specialist drill and blast plant and machinery including an emulsion plant that has overcome safety and transportation issued associated with explosives. We also own and operate a range of specialist and production drills, including a Marini (light weight drill system) design to operate on slopes with up to vertical rock faces.
