Experimental Mine

Unlike other universities, Missouri S&T prides itself on exclusive research conducted in world-class facilities. Such is the department's Experimental Mine.

Located just off campus (map)...the Experimental Mine provides students first-hand application in quarry operations, surface and underground blasting, pyrotechnic displays, as well as extensive research in air blast and ground vibrations. This is where most of the explosives labs are held, such as drilling and blasting and demolition. It is also the filming site for the lab portions of the Discovery series "The Detonators."
