ABSTRACT OF ORAL PRESENTATION

Extraordinary conditions are often encountered

when designing large blasts for in situ mining

methods and spatial or innovation techniques are

sometimes required. Some of the considerations in

designing these large blasts will be discussed with

emphasis on those factors that concern powder

factor, rock movement and fragmentation. Sources

of basic data will be described, along with some of

the methods for obtaining these data.
