About Us


DBS is one of the largest blasting contractors in the Australian mining industry. We provide blasting and explosives services to projects right across Australia, with a fleet of over 50 explosives delivery systems, four state-of-the-art emulsion-manufacturing facilities and a 250-strong workforce.

As a wholly owned subsidiary of Downer Mining, we have the backing and capability of a leading mining services company, but the personal touch of a smaller one. From working closely with our clients to understand their business drivers and developing detailed blast designs for every new project, to individually configuring each service truck to meet specific user needs, we aim to provide tailored solutions in each and every situation.

We integrate innovative blasting services and products with engineering expertise and advanced technology to provide our clients with optimal and cost-effective solutions to their individual blasting challenges. With the capacity and licensing to produce, store and transport emulsion, we are able to combine overseas equipment technology with Australian innovation to develop specialised products to meet specific customer requirements.
