More on blasting

Blasting will commence at shaft 2-1 middle of next week and the first blast has occurred at shaft 3-1 earlier this week.  This first blast went off without incident (the readings were well within allowable limits) and the contractor was pleased with results in the shaft itself.  We were fortunate enough to have some of the residents standing next to us during the blast at 3-1 and were impressed with the lack of vibration from the event.  That is the result of a well designed blast.
