The following information is shown on the Drilling Length Dashboard:

  1. Total number of holes.
  2. Colour Legend (underdrilled/within tolerance/overdrilled).
  3. Comparison options.
  4. Summary.
  5. Coloured Heatmap.
  6. Hole (hover over) information.

  • Comparison Options:
    • Length - Provides a view of of the latest known measured hole length. Measured Length vs Design Length.
    • First Length - Provides the first measured hole length. First Measured Length vs Design Length. Read more about BlastIQ™ First Length.
    • Length After Backfill - Provides a view of the achieved hole length across the blast after the backfill process is completed. Measured Length or Backfill deck horizon where present vs Design Length.
  •  Tolerances:
    • For any of the comparisons, the tolerance considered will be the hole type's overdrill and underdrill tolerances set in SHOTPlus™, if either of these tolerances are not set by any of the hole types, then the Site's Reporting Tolerances are used to classify a hole as within, over or under tolerance.
  • Compliance Score:
    • For any of the comparisons, the compliance score (%) is calculated as follows:
      Compliance Score (%) = 100*W/M
      W = count of holes within tolerance
      M = count of measured holes.
