THANKS TO VAST EXPERIENCE IN THE PRODUCTION OF AMMONIUM NITRATE, ENAEX HAS BECOME THE LARGEST PRODUCER IN LATIN AMERICA AND THIRD IN THE WORLD. WITH 97 YEARS IN THE INDUSTRY, IT HAS ESTABLISHED ITS LEADERSHIP IN THE BLASTING SERVICES MARKET FOR LARGE-SCALE MINING IN CHILE AND BECOME A MAJOR PLAYER IN THE REGION’S EXPLOSIVES MANUFACTURING MARKET.

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 Argentina, Bolivia, Mexico and Peru.

In its explosives product line, Enaex S.A. 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.
