Information for Quarry Operations

  • Video for typical production blast.   This drone video was filmed at one of H&K Group, Inc.’s (H&K’s) surface mines and presents what a typical Production Blast looks like, and where it typically occurs within the quarry. The “pause” and “return” features on most video players will allow the resident to see what occurs within the immediate “blast zone,” how individual blast holes detonate, and how blasting design limits vibration and “keeps” the majority of the blast energy at the blast zone – where it is needed. - Blast Video
