The Institute of Quarrying's latest handbook is a comprehensive guide aimed at professionals involved in commercial blasting within surface extraction, providing insights into the latest technologies and best practices in the field of explosives.
September 2023 sees the launch of the third iteration of the Explosives in Quarrying Handbook. The new version was based on previous editions White and Robinson (1995) and Cordon and Christie (2010).
This book has taken two years to rewrite with the help of EPC Groupe and brings all the key subjects up to date.
The handbook also aids those pursuing the IQ Diploma in Surface Mining Explosives Engineering and the Foundation Degree in Mineral Extractives Technology.
