About Us


The ISEE Australian Chapter is run entirely by volunteers as a not for profit Professional Society to give people in the Drill and Blast industry a forum to discuss and learn about new blasting techniques, standards, legislation and technology. All raised funds stay in the Chapter with the plan to provide sponsorships and student scholarships when possible.

The Chapter was incorporated in September 2015.
