Author(s): Torres, Vidal N.; Reis,J. A.; Luiz, P. L.; Costa, J. H. R.; Chaves, Leonardo S.
Summary: The growing demand for minerals results in increased use of explosives for blasting in open pit mining . Blasting is usually the main method used in hard rock mining
to achieve rock breakage and fragmentation . Blasting and fragmentation directly affects operational activities such as loading, hauling and mineral processing.
