Drilling and Blasting Technical Aspects of Mining

Drilling. 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

Blast Hole Drilling: The Basic Process RPM Drilling

Blast hole drilling is traditionally used wherever the mining company wants to explore the mineral composition or potential mineral yield of the area demarcated for their mining interests. Blast holes are thus a fundamental step in the exploratory mining process, and can be employed in both surface mining operations and underground mining

Understanding charging and blasting Mining Technology

The process involves drilling several holes into the rock and filling them with explosives. The locations and size of these holes are carefully determined by mining engineers based on geological surveys, as well as the quantity of explosives. When detonated, these explosives cause the rock to collapse.

An integrated approach to the drill and blast process

Aug 12, 2020 In the mining cycle, drill and blast (D&B) is arguably the first and most important step to get right. D&B 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.

or sharply kinking fuse, lead tubes of non electric blasting caps, or leg wires of electric blasting caps leading to the primer charge. STEMMING is packing an inert material, such as gravel, sand, or drill cuttings, on top of the charge to the top of the borehole. When loading a borehole, the blaster must always leave space for adequate stemming.

There Are Currently Two Modes Of Operation Under C

There are currently two modes of operation under consideration: Mode Mining rate Drilling-and-blasting cost Loading-and-hauling cost Comminution cost (t rock/h) ($/t rock) ($/t rock) ($/t rock) A 210 3.8 1.8 42.8 B 180 3.5 0.9 37.8 Mode B implies a more selective blasting pattern than Mode A; this ultimately leads to a slightly lower blasting cost, but a considerably slower mining rate.

Nov 01, 2018 1. Introduction. Mining activity is mostly represented by these four main operations: drilling, blasting, loading and hauling. For a proper mine planning and design, all of these operations need to be carefully planned in such a manner that can prevent extra loads such as operating costs, environmental footprints, etc. Amongst these operations, drilling and blasting are known as the
