Rotacan is very proud to be a recognized supplier to the Open Pit Mining Industry. As the name implies an open pit mine is one that is “open” or exposed at ground level. Common materials accessed and extracted using open pit mining methods include gold, copper, iron, coal, and diamonds to name a few. Critical components in the production process for open pit mines are drilling and blasting. Very large Rotary drilling equipment is utilized to turn the drill string while applying down pressure thereby enabling the attached rotary bit to create a hole in the rock. Mine engineers establish the number and spacing of the drilled holes required for each blast. Once an entire pattern has been drilled the equipment is relocated away from the area and the holes are loaded with explosives for blasting. Rotacan designs, manufactures, supplies, and services, a broad range of drilling consumables specifically for open pit mining applications using innovation and performance criteria specifically tailored to each customer.
