As mining companies rapidly shift their strategies and operating models to leverage digital transformation, new technologies in blasting and explosives are making an ever more vital contribution to bottom-line improvements.

On Wednesday, 13 February, two high schools in the Merafong Community were the proud recipients of a school mobile laboratory. The initiative results from a close collaboration between the Mayor’s Office at the Merafong City Local Municipality and BME.

South Africa-based explosives leader BME will be showcasing its African presence, expertise and technology at the 2019 Investing in African Mining Indaba from February 4 to 7 in Cape Town; it will also highlight its strengthened presence in West Africa, which is poised to become one of the top five gold-producing regions in the world.
