Tried and tested since 1989, the Spoutnik® lifts explosive charges under an ore or sterile pass build-up using compressed air.


Economical, efficient and safe, the Spoutnik® can carry explosives under obstructions at otherwise unattainable heights: Tested by CanmetMINING, the instrument has delivered a 26 lbs explosive charge at a height of 300 ft (91 m).

Simple and adaptable, the Spoutnik® allows triggering explosives remotely.



The Spoutnik® is the fastest solution to free ore and sterile passes. In turn, the device improves underground productivity and reduces operating costs.
