Ever since mining began on the industrial scale in the late 19th century, health and safety have been a significant concern to miners. These miners can face several risks to their well-being – notably, traumas and injuries being a considerable problem to this day. Enter MineExcellence – a company that operates in multiple commodities of the mining industry, recognizes that the future of safety in mining will be driven primarily by technology. It, therefore, is seeking to build world-class digital capabilities to improve performance vastly. It has come up with the exact solution to ensure safety in mines, a mobile and web-based platform called MineSafety.
MineExcellence promises a more agile and profitable business for companies that embrace digitalization, with improved decision-making and increased employee empowerment. When implemented correctly, MineSafety can help improve health, safety, and environmental impact – saving lives, reducing injuries, lowering emissions and waste, and increasing transparency and sustainability.
A leading technology provider in the end-to-end blasting technology space globally, MineExcellence helps its clients design, optimize, and analyze mine blasts. Its SaaS and mobile-based platforms are explicitly designed to benefit the mining industry. Business intelligence is provided in the hands of a blaster, blast supervisor, and even the senior mine management. Further, these solutions can estimate the blast parameters and predict harmful impacts like fly rocks and air/ground vibrations. It helps the designers improve and optimize blasting, resulting in significant benefits operationally and eliminating potential risks during a blast.
By combining state-of-the-art manufacturing with cutting-edge research, MineExcellence creates intrinsically safe specialized instrumentation and equipment that meets individual customer applications and requirements.

Used by small mines, large tier-1 mining companies, and mining service providers across countries, the MineSafety solution is a multitenant web and mobile based platform dedicated to helping improve health, safety, and environmental impact – saving lives, reducing injuries, lowering emissions, and increasing sustainability in mining industries. Interestingly, the mobile-based solution can work offline, anywhere, and anytime.
Moreover, the MineExcellence platform provides a mobile app that leverages industry-published empirical relationships to calculate blast clearance zone of plant, machinery, and equipment. It provides a method by which a blaster or blasting supervisor can alter blasting parameters to increase safety when blasts are conducted. These are based on empirical relationships, and hence all due care needs to be taken. Inputs to these are charge mass, burden or stemming height, and a site constant. The output is the distance that rock will be thrown. This quantification can be used to establish safe clearance distances and the critical range of burdens and stemming heights where the situation changes rapidly from safe to hazardous. Safes zones are indicated by appropriate colors on the mobile APP by using safety factors, and danger zones for machinery and persons respectively are shown on the map at your site. If it is not possible to remove any structure or person, then one can change the charging of holes.
Such proven capabilities of MineExcellence have come in handy time and again in making the world of mining safer than before. And it has also helped the company find its niche in the mining industry. Moving forward, MineExcellence is now poised to enhance its capabilities further. With the technology from MineExcellence and the MineSafety line, the company will help lead their customers into a safer, more productive solution for the better of the industry.
