vertical crater borehole mining method

Techniques in Underground Mining ILO Encyclopaedia

Like sublevel stoping and shrinkage stoping, vertical crater retreat (VCR) mining is applicable to mineralization in steeply dipping strata. However, it uses a different blasting technique breaking the rock with heavy, concentrated charges placed in holes (craters) with very large diameter (about 165 mm) about 3 m away from a free rock surface.
