Exporting stemming plugs around the world

Using Vari-Stem Plugs we have a more controlled blast with no flyrock and less air blast. Using Vari-Stem we increased our drilling pattern with very good fragmentation and reduced our drilling costs.

The VARI-STEM Plugs are working very well and quite a few of the quarry owner's have requested we use them again in their quarry.

Before using VARI-STEM, each hole was charged high to try to break up the cap rock, and on some occasions the emulsion/ANFO mix would gas up to high. Now that we are using VARI-STEM, we are achieving good fragmentation of a 5 foot thick cap rock layer using the BP-3.5 plug in a 90mm borehole. With VARI-STEM, the explosives can be left deeper down inside the borehole with an air deck/gap between the explosives and the plug, reducing our explosives costs. Using VARI-STEM has also stopped stemming ejection from the borehole.

Testing full shots with the VARI-STEM Plugs in a 115mm drill hole, we reduced our stemming height from 3 meters to 2.2 meters. We found increased horizontal throw, indicating blast containment. We also noted no fly rock, and very little oversized in the top of the muck pile.

Keeping the same pattern in 130mm boreholes, we decreased our stemming height from 2.4 meters to 2.2 meters (still controlling fly rock) and increased our emulsion. Fragmentation in the top flitch is much better. Higher rates of digging, plus better wear rates on bucket teeth and reduced crusher maintenance. “Our client has also noted improved fragmentation and increased fines as a result of using VARI-STEM.”
