Best Particle Size. Minimizing Processing Costs.

For nearly 200 years, Austin Powder Company has been in the business of helping customers mine rock safely and efficiently. Our long history of serving the mining industry reflects the continuous development of new, safer, and more reliable blasting products, and innovative technologies. Today, Austin serves mining operations throughout the world.

Our commitment to the industry begins with our commitment to safety. We employ certified blasters, state-of-the-art delivery systems, and the safest and highest quality products. We also place great importance on environmental concerns, minimizing or eliminating any environmental impacts.

Mining plays a critical role in providing the resources that make our daily lives possible. The conveniences and technologies enjoyed by society today simply would be non-existent without mining. Since first providing explosives to the underground coal producers in Appalachia, the Austin name has earned respect around the world, and our market shares in both surface and underground operations have grown steadily in metal and non-metal minerals, coal, and precious metals.

Blast Optimization

Each mining operation is different, each bench is different, and every day, the conditions in the mine are different. Getting the right-sized rock, minimizing oversize and fines, is the goal no matter the changing conditions. Austin knows that the most cost-effective place to break rock is at the face.

So, here at Austin, we begin with helping our customers choose the right product for the specific application. Products such as Austin Powder’s E*STAR Detonators are critical – not only to achieve maximum environmental control but also for the best fragmentation results possible. And, used with Austin’s 440/4100 Series gassed emulsions, this level of control results in significant cost savings.





We are a traditional manufacturer of initiation systems for industrial blasting operations and an important technological and research base for production and further development of initiation systems.
