Blast Hole Drilling: The Basic Process RPM Drilling

Blast hole drilling is traditionally used wherever the mining company wants to explore the mineral composition or potential mineral yield of the area demarcated for their mining interests. Blast holes are thus a fundamental step in the exploratory mining process, and can be employed in both surface mining operations and underground mining

Drilling and Blasting Technical Aspects of Mining

Drilling. Most blasting in mines involves charging explosives into holes drilled in rock. The entrance or mouth of a drill hole is called the collar and the end is the toe. Drilling is still carried out in some cases, in the ASM sector, by hand, using a hammer and chisel. This is obviously tedious and slow, especially in hard-rock mining

Mining Surface mining Britannica

Mining Mining Surface mining: It has been estimated that more than two-thirds of the world’s yearly mineral production is extracted by surface mining. There are several types of surface mining, but the three most common are open-pit mining, strip mining, and quarrying. These differ from one another in the mine geometries created, the techniques used, and the minerals produced.
