Based on the blasting crater theory, the equation between k under typical cases and burden line, charge height was obtained by open pit bench blasting analysis model. The model was calculated with mine production blasting. The blastability coefficient k and the best range of blasting burden line were specially emphasised on determination of lateral crater tests.
