A single blasting event can generate vast amount of data. This information may be pre-blast, during-the-blast and after-the-blast In light of today’s technology, most efficient method of
blasting data management is by means of computerized database which has all relevant information for getting desired results and for continuous improvement. Further, this paper presents a case study use of data record and analysis in a limestone mine which shows that data storage by use of software has improved mining operations, reduced drilling and blasting costs and
improved blasting results. The concept of data2Desk is also being introduced.
