Drill & Blast Optimisation Process

No matter the size of the project, we apply our proven four-step method:


Together, our experts help to define specific goals and uncover areas of opportunity. Detailed analysis and benchmarking are typically performed. Projects are always tailored to suit individual needs, usually centred on a key focus area.

Solution development

Strathcona Engineering has developed a number of process monitoring, analysis, and control tools to evaluate current operations. Utilising these tools, custom solutions are then engineered and tested to provide an optimal solution(s) for your unique set of circumstances.


All recommendations are implemented safely and efficiently with the complete support of SES experts. Risk mitigation and safety are the core focus of this stage.

Continuous improvement

SES can provide ongoing support through site visits or remote analysis that SES can integrate into solutions and support standardising operating procedures and training to sustain benefits over time.
