Our team of blasting professionals has over 120 years of combined blasting experience.

We take pride in being able to produce required size rock in all types of conditions. Given our location within the Kootenay Region, we are familiar with blasting varying harnesses of rock from mica-schist to marble granite.

We specialize in control blasting near buildings, power lines, structures and ecologically sensitive areas.

We utilize various types of explosives and primarily non-electric detonators with surface and down-hole delays to provide ultimate control while maximizing rock breakage.
