Ammonium nitrate is also sold as a raw material used for on-site manufacturing of blasting agents at various mining sites. Enaex provides customer- and site-specific solutions using ammonium nitrate and other products. Today, the ammonium nitrate produced by the Company is sold directly to customers within Chile and abroad, including important destinations like Australia, Argentina, Bolivia, Mexico and Peru. In its explosives product line, Enaex produces a large amount of high explosives – including various types of dynamite, boosters, cartridge emulsions and detonators – at the Río Loa plant in Calama. These products are used in blasting for open-pit and underground mining as well as small- and medium-scale mining operations.
