The purpose of this research is, to determine the success of blasting in an
effort to achieve the production target, to know the types of explosives, to
know the use of abrasive materials used in blasting activities, to know the
production achieved and the fragmentation produced in blasting activities.
The blasting process at PT. ABP is said to be successful. The blasting target
was not achieved due to the drill unit which experienced a lot of breakdowns,
and weather factors that prevented the blasting target in April. PF 0.19
Kg/M3, ANFO used 220,350 Kg, Dinamit 2,353.50 Kg. The weight of the blast
hole filling with an average depth of 6 and 8 meters with a column length of
3-4 meters, the amount of explosives used is 10-25 Kg/Meter, so the total is
30-100 kg/hole if the blast hole is in dry. With the number of production
targets desired by the company in April is 1,880,220 Bcm and the actual
blasting production field in April is 1,154,050 Bcm, the resulting
fragmentation is 37-42 cm
