Explosive characteristics of ammonium nitrate prill-alcohol (ANA) mixture were experimentally investigated. It adopted methyl alcohol or ethyl alcohol as the alcohol at a mixing ratio to ammonium nitrate prill for the oxygen balance condition. It was experimentally validated that this mixture showed a detonation velocity exceeding that of ANFO while its sensitivities were at the same level as of ANFO .
