Investigation of Rock Penetration and Fragmentation Problems

Anaconda Mining Inc. is experiencing three rock penetration and fragmentation problems that impact costs, recovery and overall feasibility. Through collaboration between Anaconda Mining and the Drilling Technology Laboratory (DTL) at Memorial University of Newfoundland (MUN) and the MITACS graduate internships described in this proposal, these problems will be investigated and appropriate solutions developed. The investigation of these research questions is applicable in the mining as well as oil & gas fields.
