The Underground Blasting course is a must take for anyone working with underground mining or underground construction. When approaching an underground blasting operation one of the first questions is, what type of pattern will be used? In some cases, only one option is available but more often a number of combinations are possible and how will you determine which one is the best for the situation?

In this course topics such as pattern selection, design of different underground patterns, new ways to use explosives underground, underground vibrations, and underground ground control from blasting will be taught at this new, one of a kind blasting seminar.
