Prediction of flyrock distance has a remarkable role in reduction and control of blasting accident in surface mines. In this paper, at first a new empirical equation for predicting flyrock distance was developed using dimensional analysis. The equation extended based on controllable blasting parameters that compiled from 150 blasting events in Sungun copper mine, Iran. Then, flyrock phenomenon is simulated using this equation and Monte Carlo (MC) method. Results showed that MC is a good means… CONTINUE READING
