Mass explosions in ore pits are powerful sources of environmental pollution. In the process of explosion, a dust cloud is formed, containing a significant amount of solid products of destruction of rocks and toxic gases, which are transported over significant distances, polluting the surrounding area of the quarry. The environmental damage caused to the surrounding area is partially compensated by penalties to mining enterprises from environmental authorities, but it does not eliminate the problem of environmental pollution.
