3 Technologies in Exploration, Mining, and Processing

Drilling and blasting methods are commonly used to excavate hardrock in both surface and underground mining. Blasting is also used to move large amounts of overburden (blast casting) in some surface mining operations. Improved blasting methods for more precise rock movement and better control of the fragment sizes would reduce the cost of overbreak removal, as well as the cost of downstream

The most common processes that produce respirable silica dust in mining and quarrying are drilling, blasting and cutting silica-containing rock. Most holes drilled for blasting are done with an air powered percussion drill mounted on a tractor crawler. The hole is made with a combination of rotation, impact and thrust of the drill bit.

Design of controlled blasting (pre-splitting) in

The main objectives of pre-splitting in open pit mining operations are preventing/controlling back-break; con-trolling excessive ground vibrations; and filtering the effects of explosive gases from production blasting. Pre-splitting in open pit mining is performed by arranging a row of blasting holes behind the main blast pattern (production holes).

Blasting Safety Revisiting Site Security

In underground mining situations, the mine roof conditions, ground support system, and ventilation are important factors in determining the extent of the blast area. In an underground gold mining operation in Nevada, blasting in a drift caused a roof fall in another drift situated about 25 ft below the blasted drift.

How Underground Mining Works Science HowStuffWorks

The least common method in hard-rock mining, block caving, is typically saved for low-grade ore. It involves drilling a section of ore at the very bottom of the deposit and then blasting to make the roof collapse. Gravity then takes over, as the ore above the blast site fractures and collapses in succession as support is withdrawn.
