#Truth is: ‘Underwater blasting’ is a complete misrepresentation of the proposed blasting method.
JDCL is not planning to do underwater blasting “at the bottom of a gravel pit”, rather would blast into a water-filled pit from the excavation face. This doesn’t prevent flyrock due to “cratering” or “rifling” from the explosive-filled boreholes drilled on dry land.
It is not underwater blasting. It is blasting into water—a big difference!
#False This is is a false claim!
Don’t put your safety in their hands.
