Comparison of Environmental and Blast Response in Blanford, IndianaPublic Deposited
Mining near the town of Blanford, Indiana for a number of years has led to an opportunity for Peabody Coal Company to study and compare environmental and blast effects. Such a comparison allows description of any blast effects relative to those caused by common environmental changes, which should be familiar to the public and provide a common experience. The long term nature of the mining and the proximity of a number of residential structures allowed a critically close home to be instrumented ,for a sufficiently long time to draw significant conclusions', This home was chosen from existing housing stock and thus represents conditions typical of Blanford and rural Indiana.
