Downstream Impacts of Drilling and Blasting

Impacts of Drilling and Blasting Drilling and Blasting is a complex process, that in many situations is not given the full emphasis it deserves in process development and controlling the costs throughout the mine. For example, the blasting process dictates muckpile configuration which effects shovel and loader fill factors. The fill factor of the shovel […]

Spacing with Delayed Holes

Spacing with Delayed Holes Spacing In this video Anthony Konya explains how to calculate spacing with delayed holes. Incorrect spacing can make blast vibration increase up to 500%! This happens in ground vibration when to much spacing is included in the blast pattern, as the hole will feel constrained and not break the rock effectively. […]
