With great excitement for the upcoming Investing in African Mining Indaba in 2024, the theme of ‘positive disruption’ is significant, especially in the context of mine blasting and explosives. BME is at the forefront of developing new blasting technologies that will shape Africa’s future by focusing on safety, sustainability, and productivity.
In a recent feature in Mining Review Africa, the impressive growth and achievements of Omnia Group company BME were highlighted. Originally launched in South Africa almost forty years ago, BME has expanded its footprint across the globe, establishing itself as a leading supplier of cutting-edge explosives technology and services.
When it comes to using alternate electronic initiation systems outside of the traditional wired variant, BME is looking beyond just wireless solutions.
Building on the flexibility and accuracy of electronic detonation, digital blasting tools can assist in enhancing mines’ efficiency and reducing carbon emissions’, says blasting and explosives solutions provider BME MD Ralf Hennecke.
Blasting and explosive solutions provider, BME is once again pushing the boundaries of safety with its world-class initiation system, this time testing the resistance of its AXXIS Titanium electronic delay detonators (EDDs) to high current AC voltages.
High in the mountain kingdom of Lesotho, BME recently achieved the first blast outside of South Africa with its new AXXIS Silver electronic initiation system.
Technology in blasting – alongside advanced low carbon emission emulsion explosives – are helping pave the way on mining’s sustainability journey.
In this video, we’ll show you how BME’s innovative, turn-key approach makes blasting safer and more sustainable.
Mining solutions specialist BME Mining Canada Inc. will use the Canadian Mining Expo to further highlight its blasting technology and other services to the Canadian mining industry.
A positive tone at the recent Institute of Quarrying Southern Africa (IQSA) conference is giving hope that the region’s economy is recovering, according to Tinus Brits, BME’s Global Product Manager – AXXIS.
