fragmentation – Mining and Blasting

Oct 12, 2012  FRAGMENTATION: Primary fragmentation occurs during the detonation phase. The shock waves exceed the compressive and the tensile strength capacity of the rock, and the rock is crushed and pulverized close to the drill hole, and radial cracks will be created out from the hole to a certain extent (equal to 4 – 5 times the hole radius).

Thermal Fragmentation as a Possible, Viable, Alternative ...

Dec 06, 2019  In currently used mining methods, blasting techniques often causes dilution of valuable ore and results in costly processing requirements. In the context of narrow vein mining of thin and highly concentrated orebodies there is a need of a mining method that can reduce dilution in order to remain economically viable. This research project explored the viability of a new mining technology ...

Rock Fragmentation by Blasting - Orica Mining Services

The fragmentation of rock is fundamental to mining. It is the first preparatory stage in the extraction process – making rock small enough and loose enough to be efficiently excavated. But this simple statement underestimates how important this activity is for the whole mining operation. By optimising rock fragmentation by blasting, you can ...

Apr 01, 2019  Rock fragmentation is a complex dynamic process relating to the interaction between rock mass and explosives. For this reason, a mature model has not yet been developed to meet all mining conditions and geological features (Siddiqui et al., 2009).In order to overcome this drawback, the main goal of this paper is to provide a new framework to evaluate and predict rock fragmentation
