Drilling and blasting is the controlled use of explosives and other methods such as gas pressure blasting pyrotechnics, to break rock for excavation. It is practiced most often in mining, quarrying and civil engineering such as dam, tunnel or road construction. The result of rock blasting is often known as a rock
ROCK BLASTING FOR MINING. With proper understanding of the rocks and blasting methods, the mining work can be done effectively. Investigation into the influence of drilling and blasting
Drilling and blasting is an important section during mining production. Let’s talk about the three methods of rock drilling — Rotary drilling, DTH (down the hole) drilling and Top hammer drilling.
Jul 28, 2017 Rock blasting for mining 1. 1 ROCK BLASTING FOR MINING by Prof. A. Balasubramanian Centre for Advanced Studies in Earth Science University of Mysore Mysore-6 2. 2 Objectives: You are all aware that Mining is a major economic sector of any country. Mining is a geotechnical industry.
Method and procedures for rock blasting works are as follows. Before the commencement of the work, the Engineer will be notified of the areas where rocks are to be blasted. Accordingly, the Engineer will inspect the area for approval before commencement of the works. 6.1 Rock Drilling Rock drilling will be carried out by jack hammer.
Underground soft mining involves blast mining, which is an essential part of mining. In almost all forms of mining we can see that blasting and drilling occurs. It is a method to break the material into smaller parts by blasting technology. Blast design and the execution of this process are equally important in this method.
Dec 13, 2018 It is the most common drilling technique used for mining exploration, particularly in South America and Australia. RC drilling is a form of percussion drilling, by which the rock is made to fail through the use of a piston that delivers rapid impacts to
Extraction of Minerals Minerals can be extracted by: Mining Drilling Quarrying Mining The process of taking out minerals from rocks buried under the earth’s surface is called mining. I. Open-cast Mining: Open-cast mining, also known as open-pit mining and open-cut mining, refers to a method of extracting rock or minerals from the earth by their removal from an open pit or borrow.

SURFACE MINE BLASTING Proceedings: Bureau of Mines Technology Transfer Seminar, Chicago, IL, April 15, 1987 Compiled by Staff, Bureau of Mines ABSTRACT The Bureau of Mines has sponsored a comprehensive research program to enhance the safe, effective, and efficient use of blasting technology by the mining industry.
Sublevel caving is based on gravity flow inside a broken-up rock mass containing both ore and rock. The rock mass is first fractured by drilling and blasting and then mucked out through drift headings underneath the rock mass cave. It qualifies as a safe mining method because the miners always work inside drift-size openings.
PDHonline Rock Blasting Fundamentals Slide No. 3 Introduction zThe rock must fracture enough to displace it and break it down to the size of the intended use. zRock Blasting consists of drilling holes in a rock mass at depths, in diameters, and at spacing so that an
Conventional mine shaft sinking methods involve the performance of a cycle of different operations—drilling and blasting, removal of smoke and cleaning of fly-rock lodged on overhead timbers, mucking and hoisting of the broken rock, and timbering. The latter (a) may be the last operation of the cycle, (b) may be carried on during drilling and mucking, provided it is done from a substantial
Blasthole Drilling This module presents aspects of surface drilling that are important to blasting operations. The purpose of drilling into rock is to provide a “blasthole” into which explosives can be loaded. Good drilling practices include carefully monitoring drill-rig operating parameters, taking careful notes of the changes in geology
explosive that is needed in the bottom part to break one cubic meter of the actual type of rock. Figures of C for different types of rock, in combination with different types of explosives, are found on page 3 in the programme module “Drilling and Charging”. The figures have to be regarded as preliminary while waiting for more reliable methods.
Blasting is the most productive excavation method in hard rock mining. In quarries, to remove the mother rock from in-situ and crush into the desired size is realized by bench blasting method. The latter more used in our country because it is a very profitable method.
Course Outcomes: Drilling and blasting is primary operation in any mining organization, student understands various methods of drilling, design and selection of drilling methods. Knowledge about explosives and blasting techniques makes student confident in design of blasting operations in the field.

Monitoring of drilling operations will also provide feedback to the drillers so that they may make adjustments to their methods. Flyrock can also be controlled by using
Dec 17, 2009 Techniques of Controlled Blasting 1. blasting is the predominant method for fragmentation of consolidated mineral deposits and rocks. Pre-splitting is the smooth blasting method in which cracks for the final contour are created by blasting prior to the drilling of the rest of the holes for the blast pattern.
A blasting method for beneficiating minerals comprising mining of a geological body ( 10 ) including a value portion ( 20 ) having at least a threshold content of a mineral to be extracted and a waste portion ( 30 ) relatively lean in content of a mineral to be extracted wherein mining comprises controlled blasting of the geological body ( 10 ) such that the value portion ( 20 ) fragments
Zong-Xian Zhang, in Rock Fracture and Blasting, 2016. 17.1 Introduction. Conventional drifting or tunneling by drilling and blasting method requires a much higher specific charge than ordinary production blasting such as bench blasting. For example, the specific charge at tunneling is 3–10 times higher than at bench blasting, depending on borehole deviation, tight holes, lift of the
Room-and-pillar mining A method of mining flat-lying ore deposits in which the mined-out area, or rooms, are separated by pillars of approximately the same size. Rotary drill A machine that drills holes by rotating a rigid, tubular string of drill rods to which is attached a bit. Commonly used for drilling large-diameter blastholes in open
for drilling and blasting. In hard-rock mines carefully planned drilling into the ore and blasting with dynamite or ammonium-nitrate explosives are common. Underground metal-mining methods may be unsupported, supported, and caving methods, and there are numerous variations of each.
The tunnel face geometry is unlimited, and the method is effective in rocks of low-to-medi-um compressive strength, when the rock mass is relatively fractured. In hard and compact ground, application is limited by low production rate. 6.2. METHODS 6.2.1 Drilling and blasting DRILLING PATTERN DESIGN
Drilling at right angles to a well-marked face, with top and bottom contact lines and drilling direction lines indicated, ensures that the angle of the drill is close to parallel to the top contact. PAGE 2 CHAMBER OF MINES DRILLING AND BLASTING IN HARD ROCK NARROW TABULAR MINES
However, the principles in sublevel caving blasting are applicable to other underground mining methods. Rock blasting in sublevel caving deals with drilling plan, charging plan, quantity of rings in each blast, back break, brow damage, and misfires. These will be described in detail in this chapter.
