Approximately 3.5 million tons of explosives were used within the U.S. in various applications during 2007. Any use of explosives involves increased cost to the operation, so blasting is never taken lightly or conducted without advanced planning and organization. Neighbors to blasting may experience vibration and noise produced by the operation, but whether the end purpose is mining, quarrying or construction, no operation has anything to gain by creating issues with neighbors. As a property owner near blasting operations, existing or planned, you are likely to have some questions and concerns. GeoSonics/Vibra-Tech is happy to provide some trustworthy and reassuring answers.
