Season One

This video is for our one-day Public Safety class, Explosives Device Recognition for First Responders.  This class is ideal for Law Enforcement, Police, Fire, EMT, Security, Search & Rescue.  It covers commercial, Military and Homemade explosives and IEDs.

This video is from drilling and blasting at an Oregon Sunstone Mine in Eastern, Oregon.

This video is from blasting 400 feet underground at a historic gold mine in Southern, Oregon.

This video is from blasting old hard rock mine portals in the Sumpter Mining District and finding a new gold strike!

This video is our AEG DRAGON IED Bomb Water Disrupter.  It uses shaped charge technology to rip bombs apart with a jet of water!

In this video we test 22 pounds of gold bearing quartz vein ore with a Keene RC1 rock crusher and then process it with a Blue Bowl gold concentrator.

This video is part two where we return to the Southern Oregon gold mine to have a look at the results from our prior blasting.  We then process some ore using Global Mining Equipment crushers and find some very nice gold! 

This video features our specialty police, SWAT training program, B-TEAM, Breaching, Teambuilding, Explosives & Motivation.  Filmed on location with members of the Yakima, Washington SWAT Team.

This video features blasting for new home construction.  First we blast bedrock for a basement, then cut a 900 foot utility trench.  A good example using delayed Nonel caps and technical blasting.

There is technical blasting, but this is surgical blasting!  Breaking up a 30 foot slab of bedrock in the middle of a mobile home park!  We use the 1.4 product Autostem to do the job.

Ever go gold mining by helicopter?  No blasting in this video, but a great gold mining expedition for both underwater dredging and exploring hard rock adits at the remote Emily Camp in Southern Oregon.  Beautiful gold nuggets, enjoy!
