Part 36 Mining

Section 660 Electric conveyance

Sparking or induction from electrical sources can cause explosives to detonate. Bumps, jerky movements and other impacts created by the conveyances can also cause detonation. Enclosing explosives in specially designed containers can provide protection against such hazards. However, the Director’s permission must be obtained to use containers and the described conveyances.
