"OPTIMIZATION OF DRILLING AND BLASTING PRACTICES AT A

The mining process begins with drilling and blasting activities. The efficiency of blasting affects all downstream operations such as loading, hauling, crushing and milling. Therefore drilling and blasting activities should be designed to ensure that designed parameters produce the desired fragmentation. The Kuz-Ram model is a fragmentation prediction model and is widely used for predicting

Drilling and Blasting Technical Aspects of Mining

Drilling. Most blasting in mines involves charging explosives into holes drilled in rock. The entrance or mouth of a drill hole is called the collar and the end is the toe. Drilling is still carried out in some cases, in the ASM sector, by hand, using a hammer and chisel. This is obviously tedious and slow, especially in hard-rock mining

How Does Blasting Solution Work in the Mining Industry?

The same process is again repeated until the expected tunnel length is achieved. The process includes drilling multiple holes into the rock and stuffing them with explosives. The ideal spot and size of the holes are minutely determined by mining engineers with the help of geological surveys, along with the quantity of the explosives.
