Testimonials

"Austin, over the last seven years, has really helped us understand our total blasting process from start to finish and they have helped us grow our blasting process. They have been exceptional in providing technical services to us. It’s been a very positive relationship."
Kursten Walton Carmeuse Regional Purchasing Manager
"Austin Powder has been very instrumental in helping us address our problems. We were looking at size of material that we were trying to achieve through our drilling and blasting, they helped us with the design of our headings, the design of our bench holes and the types of products we needed to achieve the outcome we were looking for on a consistent basis."
Jim Gilliam Carmeuse Site Operations Manager
"We went out and loaded headings with them we reviewed all the products that they were using and all the applications they were using. And then with that information we were able to establish base lines of where we were at that point. After establishing those baselines then we worked together to create an outline of recommendations we were able to suggest."

"As we are mining, our material changes, our rock changes. And sometimes we don’t achieve the results we are looking for. If the consistency in our drilling and blasting changes and our results have changed, we contact Austin and bring their technical people in. Together we can find the root cause of the problem and go to the source and correct it."
Jim Gilliam Carmeuse Site Operations Manager
"Actually the process took about a year to get the whole mine dialed in. Making small adjustments—some of them worked, some of them didn’t—most of them were positive adjustments. We’d make small adjustments and as they started working, we would implement them throughout the whole mine."
