English term or phrase: Shotfirers
Mining: they also use "Blasters" as in "Shotfirers and blasters". Any ideas on either or both?
Thank you

Spanish translation:hacer explotar
Explanation:
to shortfire = hacer explotar
Shortfirer = encargado de explosivos (or similar, according to your country)
Blaster = dinamitero, el que hace expñotar la dinamita u otro explosivo.
Yo traduciría la frase Shotfirers and blasters de modo general: "Los encargados de explosivos"
Luck!
