Bore Tracking

Precision real-time bore surveying and auditing

To ensure absolute precision and accuracy at every individual bore hole and planned charge placement, EXEL Drilling performs computer-aided bore tracking as required.

Our bore tracking service consists of detailed measurements, surveys and audits of the blast face, giving readings and guiding the next hole to be bored charge to be placed.

Used in conjunction with our laser face profiling service, this systematic series of checks and measures guarantees accuracy, safety and optimal results for any drilling and blasting job.

These software-based and visual audits are a foundational step in preventing problems, mainly by spotting and remediating deviated boreholes, incorrect drilling depths or off-target angles in applications including:

  • Mining and production
  • Quarrying
  • Pre-splitting for road or rail cutting
  • Exploratory drilling
  • Any ROG drilling and blasting

This service can include any of the following:

  • Drill and blast consultation
  • Pre-blast site survey and assessment
  • Detailed costings
  • Vibration and environmental assessment
  • Safety analysis and assessment
  • Computer-assisted pattern design and mark-up
