MinnBlast'14 speakers were great!


MinnBlast’14 featured the best lineup of presentations in recent memory. An audience of some 75 blasters, engineers drivers and suppliers plus students from SDSM&T

listened to a slate of 10 speakers. Hailing from: Ohio, Washington DC, Utah and Minnesota; they covered topics including; bulk products, magazine security, drill performance, mine/mill optimization, ground vibration and professional development. There was a breakout session for drivers and training was not limited to the classroom. The Minnesota State Patrol was on hand to provide a walk-around inspection of a truck (provided by Viking Explosives). A good number of questions were answered. Attendees agreed that the Minnesota Discovery Center was an excellent venue. Modern and spacious facilities contain a museum and afford a scenic overlook into the historic Glen Mine.
