AEL is proud to introduce the new series of the Surface Blasting Handbook
What every Miner should know about Surface Blasting
The Surface Blasting Handbook has been
used with great enthusiasm as a reference
guide in mine blasting training syllabi since it
was first published.
In line with our value proposition of
Thought Leadership and a move to revive
the publication, AEL has replaced these
treasured copies with a new series. This new
edition authored and tailored by our Mining
Optimisation team, has been revised to
provide greater emphasis on the answers to
critical questions that the Blaster encounters
both during his day-to-day blasting activities
and during unusual situations.
This is a practical reference guide for blasting
on surface mining operations.
This technically driven customer publication is
now available on order. This booklet compiled
by AEL Mining Optimisation, is the first in
our new series of ìWhat every Miner should
knowî. Based on practical experience, this
answers most of the questions a miner might
ask on the use and application of AEL Mining
Services range of explosives and initiating
systems for Civil, Quarrying and Surface
Mining blasting operations.
Advice on the most appropriate explosive and
initiating products and their application in the
specific mining area should be obtained from
the AEL Mining Services Office, sales support
and technical teams and/or the website www.
