Explosive Conference

Minneapolis, MN (February 5, 2014) Itasca will welcome more than 1,600 blasters to the 40th Annual Conference on Explosives and Blasting Technique in Denver, Colorado from February 9-12, 2014. Booth 7 is the place to gather for discussions around the significant ways Itasca's engineering expertise and software can help promote safety, security and control during the use of explosives. 

In addition, Itasca's new blasting software can model explosive detonation and rock fragmentation to predict particle size distributions and muck pile profiles, while reducing flyrock, back-break and vibrations to optimize blasting operations. Itasca simulations can save companies millions of dollars of cost in extracting ore from open pits and underground mining operations.  

Please bring your specific problems and questions to Booth 7 and speak with Itasca engineers on how to maximize production while minimizing costs. We hope to see you in Denver.
