Blast information 

For over 60 years, Kraemer Mining & Materials has been conducting blasts in the Burnsville Quarry, which is directly overseen by the Mine Safety and Health Administration, a division of the U.S. Department of Labor. Kraemer complies with the standards set by The U.S. Bureau of Mines for safe blasting.

Neighbors may occasionally feel vibration from a blast but rest assured, no damage will come to homes or property. In 2017, an independent consultant was hired by the City of Burnsville to study Kraemer’s blast practices. For several months, blasts were recorded by permanent seismographs at various locations in the quarry. The report concluded that the vibrations from the blasts are within the guidelines and are safe for area residents and the community.
