Blasting Blasting is generally performed by charging the holes from the top. Retreat blasting up the hole is used for safety and practical reasons. Bottom blasting is possible provided only one blast is taken from the bottom. 234 MAY 2003 The Journal of The South African Institute of Mining and Metallurgy Graph 1 Graph 2 Figure 1 Raise/Winze
Quarries, by necessity, are loed in urban areas in close proximity to people and property. Adhering to local air overpressure and blastinduced ground vibration limits is therefore crucial in enabling a quarry to maintain their licence to operate.

sites. The cautious contour blasting techniques were used. The explosives used during the tests were those commonly used in perimeter blasting. The Vånga dimension quarry was the core site for the blast damage investigations. Here, tests were conducted under carefully controlled conditions. Saw cuts were

Detonating cord quarrying technique in extraction for dimension stone can be considered as extreme case of pre splitting with a total absence of random radial cracks and a controlled displacement of separated rock mass. Blasting techniques such as cushion blasting, presplitting, smooth blasting are used to control the
Presplit blasting Spacing = Hole diameter x 12 Burden = x production blast burden (B) Uncharged length at top = 10 x D Powder factor = per square metre of face Do not stem holes. Fire all holes on the same delay, or in groups of ≥ 5 holes Smooth blasting Spacing = 15 x Hole diameter (hard rock) 20 x Hole diameter (soft rock)
In July of 2016, at a granite quarry in the Southeast United States, current drill patterns were a 13x13 with 3' of subdrill using a " blast hole. The average pounds per hole was 598. The seismograph, measuring vibration, is loed within 700ft from the blast. SHA (Signature Hole Analysis) was being utilized to delay shots.
· As a result, the lines of research were determined for development of methods and techniques allowing to quickly respond to changes in mining and geological conditions and control disruptive blasting effect in the process of dimensional stone quarrying in .
Blasting Techniques Adopted in Opencast Mines: Efficient blasting should give such rock fragmentation as to eliminate the need for secondary blasting. The fragmented rock should be easily handled by the bucket of the shovel. For mineral which has to go to crushers, the size should not be more than the input size for primary crusher.

Gulf Mining and Rock Blasting is a well established and longstanding business group on the Sultanate of Oman, having operations all over the Sultanate of Oman. The history of Gulf Mining and Rock Blasting derives from 2008, starting as a blasting specialist subcontractor. Since then, it has evolved into a leading rock drilling, gypsum and ...
blasting mats anchored by 4 tonne concrete barricades. With a powder factor of /m3 this was believed to be a conservative design. As there would be no free faces to blast to, a 5 metre deep sump was hammered out of the rock at one end of the blast. This sump provided some relief for the blast and allowed the designer to direct
Quarrying with channeling machine. Blasting . Digging or Excavating: Stones buried in earth or under loose overburden are excavated with pick axes, crow bars, chisels, hammers, etc. Wedging: This method is mainly used for the rock of sedimentary type, which are comparatively soft, such as sandstone, limestone, marble, slate, laterite.
