Abstract

"Evidence of the steady increase in the production of quarries is a reflection of the improved blasting practices that are being used. New explosives, the new millisecond electrical blasting caps and the endless experimentation carried on by both manufacturer and operator continue to aid or better the old methods of quarry blasting. In many instances the better results were obtained from practices hitherto unknown or at least unused. This report describes the results obtained from comparing quarry rounds shot in the accepted firing order and those shot in the reverse order of firing. The purpose of the report is to determine if the reverse order of firing is in any way superior to that of the regular order"--Introduction, page [1].
