In addition to a DTH service, a TLS encompasses all the associated on-bench blasting work required for a mine. This includes measuring the depth and conditions of the blast holes, priming of blast holes (also referred to as baiting), blast crew for loading requirements, stemming of blast holes, tying in of a blast and completing statutory shotfiring duties.
