Back Mountain Project blasting
With work underway on the Back Mountain Project, community members can expect an increase in blasting during the day. These smaller blasts could occur multiple times throughout the day. To minimize disruption and to differentiate from regular production blasts, the project will utilize three blows from an air horn as a signal instead of a siren. The air horn will be quieter. The siren will still be used for regular production-related blasts.
