Are readings from seismographs located in the town taken by employees of an external firm or by Mine employees?
Environment Department employees take seismograph readings in accordance with a well-established procedure. The seismographs are checked and calibrated once a year by an external firm.
Overpressure is startling and can be disquieting. Blasting air overpressure ranging from 100 to 120 dB has the same impact as 5- to 16-km/hr. winds. Air overpressure of 128 dB, the set maximum standard, has the same impact as 25-km/hr. winds and poses no risk to physical well-being. Air overpressure in excess of 150 dB generally breaks windows. We conduct studies on some town buildings (homes fitted with instruments) to ensure that blasting operations have no impact on buildings.
