The water cut of working benches in ore pits does not allow the wide use of the simplest types of explosives and causes the necessity of using water-resistant explosives, which significantly increases the cost of blasting operations. In cases when granulotols are used in watered boreholes, there is a very significant environmental load due to increased toxicity of explosion products and high dust-forming ability.
