The paper desribes the results of the analysis of the drilling and blasting index at some large enterprises. The significant period of their work has been considered. The increase in the specific consumption of explosives by years has been shown and the reasons for this increase have been explained. The issue of the development prospects of the drilling and blasting complex in terms of reducing the cost of explosives, as well as some issues associated with the use of explosives, manufactured on site. It is suggested that in the near future the development of open mining will be associated with the acceleration of processes and a significant increase in their intensity, both in the development of new ones and in the refinement of existing large open-pit mines. In this regard, drilling and blasting operations are waiting for certain changes in both the mechanization of processes and the technological methods of production. An approach is proposed for improving energy efficiency and resource saving in the production of drilling and blasting operations, which consists in applying a horizontal cut along the bottom of the bench with blasting breaking of the rock mass. It has been previously shown that the use of this method of breaking can be quite effective in comparison with the traditional approach.
Key words: Drilling and blasting operations / Explosive materials / Horizontal cut / Specific consumption of explosives / Explosive breaking / Horizontal drilling
