Unstable & unsafe cliff collapses made safe using blasting explosives

Cliff face stabilization using blasting explosives.

Sandstone cliff face was undermined by erosion on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria.                   

Able Blasting Company was able to make safe the possibility of a collapse onto a public beach, avoiding the tragedy of an unexpected death by burial.


Rock landslides can become a regularity in the high country of Australia.                                                                                                                                                                                                                              Particularly in the snowfields, when the melting snow freezes once again in the cracks of the cliff face, then expands when turned back into ice.                                                                                                  Able Blasting was able to use abseiling skills to place charges on the cliff face, controlling the blast so all public road users were not put at risk of a collapse.
