A study for finding the causes of a coal dust explosion that occurred during the blasting of coal by large diameter slurry explosive with detonating cord and detonators in the top section of the KOCP mine of BCCL was taken up for the investigation. Incendive nature of the remaining sample of the explosive was confirmed by the investigations conducted under simulated laboratory conditions in coal dust atmosphere even with very low charge. Study of relative inflammability of coal dust of the particular coal have thrown light on the prevention of coal dust explosion. This paper deals with the investigations carried out into various safety aspects associated with the usage of non-permitted explosives for blasting in coal and comments based on the results of these investigations.
