Drilling and Blasting Techniques course offered.

The University of Washington's College of Engineering is offering an intensive five-day continuing education course on Jan. 26-28, 1998, in Seattle, WA. Attendees will be given the opportunity to increase their understanding of modern, successful techniques used to effectively manage the drilling and blasting project from initial cost estimating to project completion and evaluation.

The course's format is specifically designed for mining engineers, licensed blasters, estimators, project managers and others responsible for supervising blasting projects. Safety procedures and problem-solving skills are among some of the areas to be covered. Special emphasis is placed on the effect of delay timing on rock fragmentation, the design of delay systems and controlled blasting (pre-splitting). Reclamation of rock pits, quarries and open pit mines are also included in this session. For more information, call (206) 543-5539.
