RedBull supplies a full range of explosives to Oceana Gold Limited’s Macraes Open Pit and Frasers Underground.
RedBull owns and operates a dedicated purpose-built emulsion explosive manufacturing plant and two MPUs at Macraes Open Pit Mine in East Otago. The product range supplied to the mines includes RedStar Bulk Emulsion, RedPak Packaged Emulsion (manufactured at RedBull’s North Island plant), ANFO, non-electric detonators and electronic detonators.
RedBull introduced fully-programmable electronic detonators at Martha Mine. We conceived, designed and implemented “panel blasting” techniques to control vibration and dissipate ground energy within a blast, thus reducing blast vibration.
