In the SHOT-FIRER SGUIDE an attempt is made to place at the service of explosives users in mines and quarries simple, practical explanations concerning the most approved types and methods of handling blasting apparatus and the precautions that are necessary in order to secure safety. Every stage of a blasting operation is described in detail; instances are given of the varieties of accident which most frequently occur jand the very important question of shotfiring in fiery and dusty mines is considered in the light of the most recent inquiries. It is hoped that by thus seeking to familiarise mine officials, shot-lighters and others with the risks involved in underground shot-firing, and with the skilful use of modern methods of ignition, something will be done to lessen the annual toll of lives which Nature exacts as the price of failure to comprehend her laws. In Great Britain alone 106 mine explosions have been caused by shot-firing during the past 10 years. In the same period more than 3,000 persons have been injured and over 500 killed by accidents arising out of the use of explosives. On the average, one person is injured every day and one dies as the result of his injuries each week throughout the year. Few of these casualties partake of the nature of unforeseeable occurrences.
