"The purpose of this study was the evaluation of military and commercial explosives. A standardized index of effectiveness was used as the basis of comparison.
Testing was conducted at the Experimental Mine of Missouri School of Mines and Metallurgy at Rolla, Missouri, and at Graniteville, Missouri. At the school mine, 16 drift rounds, 8 slab rounds and 70 quarry tests were made in the dolomitic limestone. This rock, known locally as the Quarry Ledge of the Jefferson City formation, is of Ordovician Age"--Abstract, page ii.
