Subsection 21 10 in SME Mining Engineering Handbook 2:21-96to21-106
The ability to package a vast amount of energy in a very small container, together with the demonstrated ability of nuclear explosives to fracture and break large volumes of rock efficiently and at costs below those of conventional explosives, makes the use of nuclear explosives in underground mining systems potentially attractive. Nuclear explosives are described, available cost data is presented, and a number of potential applications are discussed. No actual tests have been conducted in mining as of 1974.
