Engineering blasting operations

POSTED BY - Equinox Gold


Rock is blasted either to break it into smaller pieces such as in most mining and quarrying operations or large blocks for dimensional stone mining and some civil engineering applications, or to create space. The conditions under which blasting is carried out also affect the operations and the results. Precise engineering of operations are needed to achieve the desired objectives. The engineering of blasting operations needs clearly defined objectives, materials, skilled techniques, the necessary theoretical background of the process of rock fragmentation and effect of rock conditions and experience in combining them.
