Blasting is the process of breaking of  bulk rock masses  into loose forms,  using  explosive compounds.  Here, the primary role is  played by the explosives.   The explosives  are  the substances or devices used in blasting. The explosives are used to produce  a volume of rapidly expanding gas that exerts sudden pressure on its surroundings and break the mass into pieces  But when it comes to underground coal mining, all coal seams are considered gassy and the degree of the gas present may vary from I to III. Then only permitted explosive &  approved detonators are to be used.
