Main benefits

A single source of truth

Save time by consolidating duplicate and incorrect information. Automate export of design data to the field and connecting field data back to design.

Share D&B data seamlessly

Connect to MinePlan Blast design package, Activity Scheduler and OP Pro Drill. Publish from Blast, send shot design, receive as-drilled data.

D&B Plan Compliance

Share drill and blast data easily with operations and management and react quickly to save money by course-correcting poor D&B design compliance.

One source of truth to monitor and improve the D&B process

Drill and blast is a complex, multi-layered process where errors can accumulate downstream with costly consequences. HxGN MineMeasure Blast Control is an integrated web-based platform that combines drill & blast design with operational feedback from equipment and tablet-based applications. It provides a single source of truth by bringing together drill and blast designs with actuals, including drilling, quality assurance, consumable usage, charging, topography and geology data.


MineMeasure Blast Control connects the ecosystems of planning, operations and safety, closing the loop for reconciliation by empowering sites to understand where there are challenges in the drill and blast design workflow.


Now drill and blast data can be shared easily with operations and management, improving transparency across the organization and allowing you to react quickly to save money by course-correcting poor D&B design compliance.

Unlock information and empower group decision-making

Easy interaction using a web browser means you can publish detailed properties for each drill pattern and hole from HxGN MinePlan Blast, aiding group awareness and decision-making, as well as improving the process for reporting D&B design and progress to management.

Visualise the design and actual drill and blast progress

3D spatial plan visualization (digital twin). Communicate surface, geology, and D&B information in 2D and 3D. Identify physical constraints and set color-styling for hole types, hole status, types of explosives. Visual cues allow you to visualize execution of the drill plan.

Integrate and create awareness of drill and blast safety

Create situational awareness around safety in the D&B process by confirming that your equipment is outside of the exclusion zone ahead of the blast. Clearly visualize the high-risk zone and see the exclusion zone along with the 3D terrain and drill pattern design, all in the web browser.
