3 Technologies in Exploration, Mining, and Processing

Drilling and blasting methods are commonly used to excavate hardrock in both surface and underground mining. Blasting is also used to move large amounts of overburden (blast casting) in some surface mining operations. Improved blasting methods for more precise rock movement and better control of the fragment sizes would reduce the cost of overbreak removal, as well as the cost of downstream
