Fortescue Metals Group engaged HEA Enterprise for a project consisting of 3M bcm of blasting through some challenging terrain and located near significant heritage sites.

Throughout this project HEA Enterprise provided specialist drill and blast services and:

  • Assisted the contractor to develop a Blast Management Plan and the associated Critical Risk Assessments
  • Assisted the contract to assess the location and implementation of blasting activities close to heritage sites
  • Management of the contractor carrying out blasting activities

The project was completed with no damage to heritage sites, some being within 5 metres of the project and all activities were compliant with our client’s operational requirements and blasting specifications as well as government regulations.
