Quality of blast preparation for rock beneficiation influences both on integrity of mineral stock in particular and in economical performances of enterprise operations in general. While rock processing for obtaining of crushed stone the yield of screenings is high, its amounts depend on rock strength properties. Investigation into the influence of drilling and blasting parameters on strength properties of blasted rocks is an urgent research and practical task for mining companies producing
