Mining Services

RedBull supplies a full range of explosives to OceanaGold’s three South Island gold mines – Macraes Open Pit, Frasers Underground and Reefton Open Pit Mines and also Newmont’s Martha Mine at Waihi.

RedBull owns and operates a dedicated purpose-built emulsion explosive manufacturing plant and two MMUs at Macraes Open Pit Mine in East Otago. The product range supplied to the mines includes RedStar Bulk Emulsion, RedPak Packaged Emulsion (manufactured at RedBull’s North Island plant), ANFO, non-electric detonators and electronic detonators.

RedBull introduced fully-programmable electronic detonators at Martha Mine. We conceived, designed and implemented "panel blasting" techniques to control vibration and dissipate ground energy within a blast, thus reducing blast vibration.
