H BLASTING IN SURFACE EXCAVATION - Mining and Blasting

Figure 8: Drilled burden and spacing versus effective burden and spacing (after ICI) Figure 9: Hook-up system with Nonel in surface mining Delay Intervals Too short a delay causes the back rows to be initiated before the burden on the front holes has time to break away and to move. This may cause flyrock from rows at the back.
