Abstract

ABOUT 3,000 tons of commercial blasting explosives of various types are used every year in Western Australia of which approximately two thirds is utilised by mining industries and the remainder goes mainly to quarrying and public works.

The farmer and orchardist actually use only very small amounts but nevertheless explosives are a very useful working tool for the primary producer.
