Russia and its scientifi c and technological allies in the world have currently reached the state-of-theart in the field of provision of mining operations with a wide range of explosives and firing agents. On the other hand, due to specificity of mineral resources, some countries, in particular, Mongolia, are faced with some difficulties in application of Russian explosives, e.g. small cross section blastholes, blasting in combustible coal, shattering of highly strong ore, etc. The authors put forward some engineering decisions on improvement of operational and explosive properties of explosive mixtures. Manufacturability of such explosives of commercial quality using available process raw materials is illustrated. It is emphasized that the current problems in mines in Russia and Mongolia can be solved by means of selecting rational technologies to manufacture explosive mixtures with regard to peculiarities of currently available raw materials. When choosing new areas to continue the research, much attention should be given to modern surface active substances and polymeric material.
