Drilling and Blasting in Underground Mining GRT Review

01/04/2021 Working safety in underground mining is related to blast operations, rock conditions and mining methods. The potential for roof problems, rock spalling, rock bursts, rock falls and brow damage is rife. It is a common problem that rock blasting in underground mines makes local underground water contaminated. The problem stems from two reasons. Firstly in multi-hole blasting, the

Blasting in Underground Coal Mines ACARP Project C20033 . Blasting in Coal Mines •Modern mechanised coal mines use machines and longwall mining methods to cut solid coal and convey the broken coal out of underground workings. •Continuous mining equipment has escalated coal production and introduced more effective and efficient coal handling facilities. •Traditional drilling and blasting

This chapter focuses on the blasting in sublevel caving. But the principles in sublevel caving blasting are applicable to other underground mining methods. The following topics are discussed in

Blasting Techniques Used in Underground and Opencast

In underground coal mine the yield of coal on an undercut face is nearly 5-8 te per kg of explosive and 1-2.5 te per detonator but with solid blasting the figures are 1.8 to 2.7 te per kg of explosive and 0.8 to 1.35 te per detonator. Some of the slurry explosives of I.D.L. have produced the following results during experiments at a few coal mines on precut face (Pentadyne figures are for

Blasting Practices in Mining what you need to know

06/04/2021 Air blasting in mining is a method of blasting in which compressed air at very high pressure is piped to a steel shell in a shot hole and discharged. It is often called air overpressure. An air blast is the airborne shock wave generated by an explosion. In underground mining, after an explosion a strong rush of air follows. Air is also caused by the ejection of air from large underground

Control blasting has mainly been used in surface mining operations to minimalize blast damage. To explore the applicability of control blasting in underground mining operations, protect the safety

Drilling & Blasting of Underground Stopes

04/04/2017 Blasting directly on the grizzlies is destructive to the grizzly bars and settings, and the recent trend is toward blasting in chambers on one side of the grizzly and transferring the reblasted ore by scrapers to the grizzlies. Figure 110 shows a bulldozing chamber and details of grizzly construction at the Alaska-Juneau mine in 1928. In that

Underground Mining Methods Mining Matters

Drilling and blasting takes place at different underground levels of the mine at the same time. As the blasted rock, muck, is continuously transported to the ore pass, more blasting will encourage the roof to cave in to the void and further into the drift. This is repeated until blasting, caving and transporting depletes the entire ore body.

12/10/2012 Benefits of Inclined Drilling in Surface Mining: In Bench Blasting, inclined drilling extends numerous benefits. These are: Better Fragmentation Better displacement and swelling of muckpile, as Burden B is kept almost uniform along length of blasthole and angle of projection of the blast increases (Refer fig below). Less chances of misfire caused by cutoff from Burden movement

Underground Mining Orica

As the easy coal is mined out, mine operators need to become more skillful at mining thin, steep, deep and undulating seams productively and without sacrificing coal quality. Orica has developed significant expertise in using unconventional techniques for through-seam and deep-seam blasting and coal edge protection using our own specialist design software, geophysical tools,

31 Blast design considerations for underground mining and

Because the great majority of completely new fractures are created by tension, the dynamic tensile breaking strain (εt) is an important property of massive rocks. As the degree of natural fissuring increases, the influence of εt decreases whilst that of the pre-existing cracks becomes greater. Important and highly controllable blast parameters include the diameter and length of

The Blast Control Unit (BCU) provides the required blast voltage and encoded signal necessary to initiate the blast. The BCU can be used in a standalone or remote blasting mode, blasting a maximum of six blasting points from a point of safety using a Red SmartKey. The BCU can be powered from 110, 220, or 525 V and incorporates a battery back-up system in case of power
