Quarry Drilling & Blasting McCallum Rock Drilling

Rock hammering is slow, inefficient, costly, and has the same inherent properties of blasting on a smaller scale. Blasting can actually be quieter than rock hammering, and takes much less time. A typical blast duration is usually 1 to 3 seconds, while rock hammering can take over two weeks to displace the same amount of volume incurred by a

blasting. There are four methods commonly used in blasting rock boulders and outcroppings. Two have been discussed: mudcapping and blockholing. Another method, SNAKEHOLING, includes the placement of ex-plosives under the rock. SEAM BLASTING is used when the blaster is lucky enough to find a crack or seam, and load the explosive charge into it.

Duntroon Quarry Operations Fact Sheet: Blasting and

As a quarry operator, blasting is an important aspect of our business. The most efficient fracturing of the bedrock is done at the blast face. Our challenge is to balance the effective fracturing of the rock with the control of impacts from the blast. This fact sheet explains the science of vibration and the craft of blasting.
