Includes bibliographical references (p. ).Mode of access: Internet Topics: Coal mines and mining To compete in western coal markets, the cost of multislice mining must be within the range of normal longwall costs.

Analysis indicates that multislice operating costs should be within this range, and that multislice mining costs decrease as panel width increases.

Remember seeing a sign post for Tupton & thinking "that's another name for the Low Main seam!" (coal seams are called mines in Lancashire) union was   Those seams that have been mined were given names, which reflected their quality (Brassey Coal, Stone Coal, Crank Coal, etc), their thickness (Five Yard Coal, Main Coal, etc), or locality (Hollin Coal, Mountain Mine Coal, etc).

In most areas the coal seams 2 days ago  Western Australia The coal seams in Western Australia belong to the Carboniferous, Mesozoic, and Post-tertiary ages.

Most of the coal contains a large proportion of moisture, and belongs partly to the hydrous bituminous and partly to the lignite class. The only coalfield at present worked is at Collie, in the Mesozoic beds of the ://@.nsf/featurearticlesbytitle/ACA This coal availability study -- the first in the Western United States -- indicates that about 67 percent of the coal in the Main Wyodak bed is available for mining, and about 60 percent of the total coal in the quadrangle is available for mining.

Studies in the Appalachian coal region indicate that, overall, only 50 percent of the original Ground control analysis of multi-slice mining for thick Western coal seams.

Authors This paper describes a study by the Bureau of Mines into the ground control factors affecting multislice longwall mining under western mining conditions, including field trials at a multislice operation in Colorado. COAL LOADING, HAULING, AND HANDLING Surface mining coal recovery varies from about 80 percent in the thin eastern and midwestern seams to tetter than 95 percent in the thick western seams.

After the overburden is removed, some coal seams may be mined directly with shovels, but in most cases, holes from 3 to 6 inches in diameter are drilled Multislice mining methods were analyzed by the U.S. Bureau of Mines to determine their application to Western U.S.

thick coal seams; ground control, geology and costs were considered. Multislice mining is used in widely varying seam conditions worldwide, including flat seams too thick to mine in a single pass, pitching thick seams, and seams   Coal Mining Methods Underground Mining Longwall & Room and Pillar Mining Longwall mining and room-and-pillar mining are the two basic methods of mining coal underground, with room-and-pillar being the traditional method in the United States.

Both methods are well suited to extracting the relatively flat coalbeds (or coal seams) typical Mining Methods - EMFI This method that comprises mining and converting of coal has already been tested in-situ or even pat into operation on a technical scale in several countries.

The results have shown that an in-situ gasification process can be initiated and sustained. But these operations have been run mainly in shallow thick seams often of highly reactive ://   Some 6, acres of relatively flat land in the county held thick seams of coal not far beneath the surface.

The beauty of this project for TVA was that the powerplants were built, essentially, right in the coalfield, dramatically cutting coal haulage and transportation costs. Paul McRee, “Book Inspired by Western Kentucky Coal Mining    Mining methods.

About 70–80% of thick coal seams are exploited by means of underground mining methods. Two mining methods, longwall and room-and-pillar, are generally used for the extraction of coal worldwide.

Both of these methods are well suited to extracting the relatively flat coalbeds (or coal seams). The top seller was steam coal, which was desired by industry.

The cost of transport can be substantial and can account for a large fraction of the total cost to the consumer. Rail transportation is by far the most common mode of hauling coal over long distances. Roadbed and track requirements and large fixed investment in Exploration for thick seams within the Carbon and Thompson coal zones should be concentrated within the NS‐SE trending belt of thick coal accumulation.

Because the regional dip is to the west, exploitation of coal seams in the western portion of the study area would be limited to underground mining The same mass of Coal occurs at the Quarrelton Coal Field, in Renfrewshire, from 50 to 60 feet thick in some parts, composed of five distinct seams, separated by thin strata of shale and ironstone.

This great thickness appears to have been produced by a disturbance of the strata, which has caused the series to break and overlap, or double over   The Height of Water-Conducting Fractured Zones in Longwall Mining of Shallow Coal Seams.

Geotech. Geol. :// Coal bursts involve the sudden, violent ejection of coal or rock into the mine workings. They are a particular hazard because they typically occur without warning. During the past 2 years three US coal miners were killed in two coal bursts, following a 6-year period during which there were zero burst fatalities.
