Drilling and Blasting Technical Aspects of Mining

Blasting in a mine generally occurs in two phases, primary blasting and secondary blasting. Blasting Primary Blasting is the activity in which in-situ rock is broken in both development and stoping and in surface mining by drilling holes in the rock, charging them with explosives and detonating the holes in a planned sequence.

Blasting Britannica

Blasting, process of reducing a solid body, such as rock, to fragments by using an explosive. Conventional blasting operations include (1) drilling holes, (2) placing a charge and detonator in each hole, (3) detonating the charge, and (4) clearing away the broken material. Upon detonation, the

Explosion propagation and characteristics of rock damage

Dec 01, 2020· The blasting damage to a rock mass results from the activation, expansion, and accumulation of micropores in the rock under the combined action of the blasting stress wave and detonation gas, which leads to the deterioration of the rocks’ mechanical properties and reduced bearing capacity until rock failure; in other words, the damage degree

The characteristics of blasting vibration frequency bands

High-slope and rock mass joint development are the factors for predicting and controlling blasting vibrations under open pit mining. Blasting vibration adversely affects the stability of jointed rock slopes, thus studying the characteristics of blasting vibration frequency bands in jointed rock masses slope is an important task to ensure the safety of blasting operations.

Dynamic Response Characteristics and Failure Mechanism of

Rock slopes with weak intercalated layers could experience disturbance from various deep mining activities; however, their dynamic stability has not been thoroughly investigated. In this paper, the dynamic response characteristics and failure mechanism of the coal slopes with weak intercalated layers under blasting loads were studied by means of numerical analysis, shaking table tests, and

Damage Characteristics of Surrounding Rock Subjected to

For limiting the damage range caused by explosive shock loads in vertical crater retreat (VCR) mining, the blasting damage characteristics of surrounding rock were studied by two methods: numerical simulation and ultrasonic testing. Combined with the mining blasting in Dongguashan Copper Mine of China, the VCR blasting shock characteristics under different conditions are obtained by using

Characteristics of coal mining microseismic and blasting

Oct 28, 2017· The signal waveforms caused by blasting events, which are similar to the microseismic (MS) signal waveforms caused by mining activities, are very common during the MS monitoring at coal mines. However, these blasting signals are not useful for monitoring and early warning of the coal or rock dynamic disasters by MS monitoring technique. To distinguish between the coal mining MS

History. The VCR mining method was developed by INCO and CIL Inc., and is based on Mr. C.W. Livingston’s crater blasting theories. It was first used in 1974, at the Levack mine located in the Sudbury Basin’s North Range, and it provided productivity benefits almost immediately.In fact, mining productivity, measured in pounds of nickel and copper produced per manshift, has improved by
