João Soares – Mining Engineer

João Soares studied Mining Engineering at Centro Universitário Luterano de Palmas (Brazil) and during his recent academic and professional career, he developed experience in areas of rock blasting, mining software’s, blast KPI’s, etc., always focused in continuous improvement of mining processes. João Soares was doing an internship at O-Pitblast (O-Pitblast University) and left us with his testimony. O-Pitblast Team wishes you best of the lucks for your future.

“I had the opportunity to do an internship in O-Pitblast in Porto, Portugal where I’ve learned to plan and audit blasts and use tools that help to improve mine productions significantly.

With O-Pitblast software it’s possible to work directly with topographic information, edit, create and manage hole characteristics, control timing sequence, view the histogram in order to prevent excessive MIC, predict fragmentation, analyze vibration issues, solve dilution problems, analyze borehole deviation, among others.

With all this in one software it’s possible to optimize the blast by applying geometric adjustments on the pattern resulting in cost reduction of the overall production process.”
