Title: BLASTING METHOD
Abstract:
Methods for using a single explosive material whose specific volume energy can be controlled for use in at least a segment of a borehole. Alternatively, or additionally, methods for using mixtures of one or more explosive materials and one or more non-explosive energetic materials whose specific volume energy can be controlled for use in at least a segment of a borehole. Such methods include determining a target specific volume energy required for the explosive/energetic materials in the segment of the borehole and selecting a product mixture for that segment of the borehole which will produce the required target energy.
