About Us

Diptek provides solutions for specialised problems in the field of drill and blast.

Who We Are

Founded by Brian Kellett and Chris Loveland, Diptek provides solutions for specialised problems in the field of drill and blast Quality Control and Quality Assurance (QAQC).

Through the use of the patented Diptek System we ensure conformance and compliance to the feedback loop required for blast hole QAQC. The trust in this feedback loop delivers downstream profitability, performance, and sustainability to the open pit drill and blast activity.

Our Vision and Mission

Our vision is to advance the feedback loop of blast hole QAQC by enabling field data to be easily collected and effortlessly fed into databases to output trusted and usable data sets.

When the input data is trusted these data sets can be relied upon to enhance value for the operation. The most widely known example being the enhancement of crushing throughout while simultaneously reducing blockages and bridging.

“Our mission is to place this technology and system in the right hands to obtain quality data sets, thereby unlocking the significant value that remains hidden within the mining cycle.”
