Platinum News

Ever wondered what 7,500 tonnes of AN looks like?

Last week at Port Alma we successfully unloaded another bulk shipment of Ammonium Nitrate (AN) bound for our storage facility at Bajool. From there, depending on the grade, it will be distributed for use at our various mine site operations throughout Queensland, or sent to Platinum’s own manufacturing plant in the Bowen Basin for the production of our high quality Hydra emulsions.

 At Platinum Blasting our suite of services cover the full range of customer requirements including explosives supply and logistics. For any enquiries regarding these products and services, please don’t hesitate to contact us. 


We’re celebrating

Platinum Blasting Services is proud to have secured a three-year extension to our contract at the Foxleigh Mine.  This extension is on the back of delivering excellent performance over the past three years and our strong partnership with Middlemount South.

The efforts extended by all involved in delivering the blasting requirements safely and efficiently at our Foxleigh operations has not gone unnoticed. In particular we extend our appreciation to our crews for their ongoing hard work and commitment. To mark the occasion, crew members were gifted with an engraved Yeti travel mug.

Congratulations to the team, and we look forward to continuing to work closely with Middlemount South.
