a. A cut on which groups of holes are drilled at increasing heights above floor level and at increasing angles from the free face. The shots are fired to break out successive wedges of strata across the width of the face. BS, 12
b. A drill-hole pattern widely used in high-speed drilling. The cut holes are inclined downward to cut a wedge along the floor, the other holes being drilled to break to the cut holes. Also called horizontal cut. Nelson
c. A cut in which the cut holes are angled in the vertical plane toward a parting in order to breakout the ground along the parting. Drag cut rounds are suitable for small drifts 6 to 7 ft (1.83 to 2.13 m) wide or where shallow pulls are sufficient, but the drag cut does not find much application in large-scale drifting practice.
