An assessment of environmental impacts of quarry

2005-6-10  This study evaluates the impacts resulting from quarry-blasting operation on nearby buildings and structures as it generates ground vibration, air blast, and fly rocks. In this paper, first blasting operation and its possible environmental effects are defined. Then the methods of blast-vibration prediction and commonly accepted criteria to prevent damage were introduced.

Maximum profitability depends largely on an optimized blast. Consider that drilling and blasting are the first operations performed in any hard rock quarry operation.

Quarry drill and blast: a vital first operation

2014-11-18  Drilling and blasting is one of the first operations to be carried out in a quarry to gain the material for further processing. The vital process often starts with a detailed survey of the quarry face, which will enable the explosives engineer to design the blast and to plot where the shot holes should be drilled, enabling the task to be carried out safely and efficiently.

Blasting Induced Ground Vibration in Quarry Mines

In Sri Lankan quarry mines, the rock breakage is primarily done by blasting techniques. One of the major environmental issues associated with rock blasting operations is the ground vibration.

Surface mineral workings: control of blasting gov.scot

Blasting within opencast coal sites is within specific cuts or linear areas of a site which progress across the excavation area relatively quickly compared with the progress of quarry faces. Hence, a suitable time period for an opencast coal site may be that time typically taken for any one cut to be fully worked.
