The ÕII International scientific conference “Up-to-date technologies in drilling and blasting operations, their economic efficiency and technogenic safety” took place on September 3-9, 2013, at Kremenchuk Mykhailo Ostrohradskyi National University. The event was held in cooperation with the Ukrvzryvprom interagency association and ZAO Interdepartment commission on explosion science within the AMS (Russia). “Prof. D-r. Assen Zlatarov” University (Bulgaria), National Mining Academy of Ukraine, Silesian University of Technology (Poland), the Ukrainian Union of Explosive Engineers, N.S. Polyakov Institute of Geotechnical Mechanics, Poltava Ore Mining and Processing Plant, OJSC were co-organizers of the conference. Scientists from nearly 40 HEIs from Ukraine, Russia, Bulgaria, Kazakhstan, Romania, Poland, and Uzbekistan were working in the atmosphere of fruitful collaboration. The main thematic sections were: theoretical and experimental research of blasting rock destruction, new emulsion explosives and their use efficiency in mining; advanced technologies for development of mineral deposits; economic efficiency of up-to-date technologies using in mining; special blasting works and technogenic safety in underground mining workings; design and maintenance of special blasting works; innovations, technology transfer, and commercialization of scientific research; labour protection and industrial safety at mining enterprises.
During the conference 35 reports were announced.
