Strategic Alliance partners Sandvik and Dyno Nobel held their annual Quarry Academy Nov. 12-15, 2013, at the Omni La Mansion del Rio Hotel in San Antonio. The event included a site visit to Martin Marietta Materials’ Beckmann Quarry.
During the tour the participants received a plant overview; viewed primary loading and the company’s gigantic O&K in-pit mobile HSI crusher; saw an electronic initiation systems demonstration; viewed a production blast (see blast sequence photos); and inspected field-survey control instruments, tools and methods.
