CIVIL BLASTING AT ROBE VALLEY
JSW successfully completed the first blast at Rio Tinto’s Robe Valley site in the Pilbara in January, paving the way for the creation of the site’s new Ammonium Nitrate facility.
The JSW crew, which has been drafted from Callide, Bald Hill, Boddington and Ramone, mobilised to site last December following the completion of the project kick off meeting and CRAW workshops with contractor CPB.
Prior to the first blast, workshop areas were established and the team undertook the required Rio Tinto training, which covered firefighting, isolation and critical risk awareness. Training was also provided in 4WD vehicles, first aid and civil construction resources.
