Drill And Blast Process

Drill and Blast Method - railsystem.net

The typical cycle of excavation by blasting is performed in the following steps: Drilling blast holes and loading them with explosives. Detonating the blast, followed by ventilation to remove blast fumes. Removal of the blasted rock (mucking).

An integrated approach to the drill and blast process ...

12/08/2020  In the mining cycle, drill and blast (DB) is arguably the first and most important step to get right. DB operations impact the entire mining process, from mining equipment efficiency, through crushing and grinding circuit performance, to recoveries and final product quality. Costs and energy usage increase throughout the comminution process.

BEST PRACTICES IN DRILL AND BLAST

Engineers can create designs in the offi ce and upload them to the drill rigs by remote means; drillers can see the patterns from their drill rigs as sent by drill and blast engineers from the offi ces. Engineers can monitor and follow up drilling progress in real-time from the offi ces, from any location, depending on how they are connected.

Working, e.g., excavating, a geological mass by a succession of substantially continuous drill-load-blast sequences, each sequence comprising drilling a hole in the mass, placing a charge of condensed secondary explosive in the hole, and initiating the charge by projecting propagative energy, e.g., the kinetic energy of a high-velocity projectile, through an inactive medium, e.g., the ...

Drilling and Blasting Technical Aspects of Mining ...

Most blasting in mines involves charging explosives into holes drilled in rock. The entrance or mouth of a drill hole is called the collar and the end is the toe. Drilling is still carried out in some cases, in the ASM sector, by hand, using a hammer and chisel. This is obviously tedious and slow, especially in hard-rock mining conditions.

Drill-and-blast process - E. I. DU PONT DE NEMOURS AND

An efficient drill-and-blast process requires that as much as possible of the available explosive energy be manifest in the form of high pressure working on the formation surrounding the drill hole, e.g., to break the formation. This is accomplished by having as much of the explosive as possible surrounded by the formation with avoidance of any substantial intervening compressible layer, e.g ...
