BHP & Mitsubishi claimed the world record for the World's largest electronic blast.

The major duo used the Dyno Nobel's Digishot technology, to blast around 4.7 million metres of overburden with 2194 tonnes of bulk explosives across 3899 holes at the Caval Ridge Coal mine in Queensland.

The blast took 14 days to load the explosives using almost 8,144 detonators, which is amusing even the industry experts.

The usage of such large-scale blasting technologies ensures low-cost removal of the waste, reducing the stripping costs.
