  1. Assume Wet
    1. 'Wet - Unknown' renamed 'Assume Wet'.1
    2. Holes marked as 'Assume Wet' are treated as wet holes for the application of Loading Rules.
    3. No water measurements will be exported to BlastIQ™ for holes marked as 'Assume Wet'
    4. Loading rules will not be applied in BlastIQ™ for holes marked as 'Assume Wet'.
    5. Holes marked as 'Assume Wet' will be protected from the automatic reapplication of rules in SHOTPlus™.2
    6. Where a hole marked as 'Assume Wet' receives a water measurement, the 'Assume Wet' tag will be cleared and the water measurement will be applied to the hole.
  2. SHOTPlus™ now maintains 'Depth to Water' where a hole has a water measurement and a new length measurement is received.3
  3. A backfill deck is now added to all holes beyond backfill tolerance.4
  4. Selection of holes enabled from within the Volume Overview window.
  5. 'Auto' surfaces removed from selectable layers.
  6. When importing measurements for holes with manually edited loading, users will now be prompted to reapply loading rules.
  7. Time Envelope now evaluated on the time displayed on the plan, rather than potential sub-millisecond timing.
  8. Back and Forward arrows in the hole table disabled where a single hole is selected.
  9. Bulk explosive display colours now displayed for Graphical Loading Rules.
  10. Selected holes will now been shown highlighted in the Row View at the bottom of the Hole Table.
  11. Text objects can now be moved using the 'Move Objects onto Surface' functionality.


    1. 'Assume Wet' acts as a design property for holes.
    2. Holes tagged as 'Assume Wet' are treated as unsupported rules for BlastIQ™ users. Where new measurements are received for holes tagged as 'Assume Wet' users will be prompted to reapply loading rules.
    3. Where a hole receives a length measurement that is less than the Depth to Water, the depth to water of the hole will be cleared if no new water measurement is entered or received. 
    4. Based on the tolerances defined in SHOTPlus™ and a comparison between the 'Design' length and the 'Actual' or 'Drilled' length. To prevent backfill decks being added, disable the backfill tolerance for a specific hole type.


  1. Tie legend text was not visible when using SHOTPlus™ with a black background.
  2. Creating a hole with 'Drill to Length' drilling method was resulting in holes with a Grade RL above the Collar RL in certain circumstances.
  3. The Sub-drill specified in Default Design Data was not being assigned to holes imported via the text importer with incomplete design information.
  4. Clearing the actual collar and toe was not resetting collar positions where drill data was present.
  5. Certain warning messages were being shown twice when exporting to BlastIQ™.
  6. Blast volume was not indicated in the Volume Overview tool when opened.
  7. Bench Height was being incorrectly calculated for holes in certain situations.
  8. An error was incorrectly given when importing temperature data in the text importer with blank cells present.
  9. An error was incorrectly given when marking a hole as Not Drilled via the text importer.
  10. Editing the 'Drill To' method for multiple holes could result in incorrect design parameters in certain situations.
  11. Recording a temperature for a hole was not updating the hole from Design mode to Updated Design mode.
