About the Course


This is a practical short course that will provide a review of basic blasting
theory and blasting products, but will emphasize the design and assessment
of blasting practices. The course will focus on drilling and blasting as it is
applied in mines and quarries. Design methodology for safe and efficient
blasting will be provided. Monitoring and assessment to improve blast
performance and reduce blast vibrations will be discussed. The use of
computers to design blasts and predict blast performance will be
undertaken using a suite of programs. Participants will receive software for
blast design and fragmentation evaluation.
The first day will be a general session covering blasting basics. The second
and third days will be split into separate sessions for underground and
surface operations. The third day will address controlled blasting, the basic
principles of design of slopes and underground excavations in rock and the
manner in which blasting affects excavation performance, pit slope design,
underground support, overbreak, and pillar performance.
