Abstract
This Bureau of Mines report describes five nonelectric explosive initiation systems and compares them by pointing out advantages and disadvantages of each. It indicates that no system is satisfactory in all situations, but that each is essential in the blasting industry. Two new developments described will increase competition and flexibility, both of which normally work to the mine operator's advantage.
