Smaller shot rock resulting in less crushing in the secondary and tertiary stages may mean less improvement through crushing. Therefore the mineral quality and/or changes in physical properties of the product may be affected. Figure 5-2. Drilling Figure 5-3.

    Drilling Activities. The driller must take all possible steps to avoid deviation of drillholes as reduced burden or intersection of shotholes is a significant hazard that has a high potential for injury to persons and property damage. Good practice should minimise drillhole deviation to 2 or 3°. The driller should accurately mark out the
