Coal mine methane (CMM) is a term given to the methane gas produced or emitted in association with coal mining activities either from the coal seam itself or from other gassy formations underground. The amount of CMM generated at a specic operation depends on the productivity of the coal mine, the gassiness of the coal
Longwall mining is an automated form of underground coal mining characterized by high recovery and extraction rates, feasible only in relatively flat-lying, thick, and uniform coal beds. A high-powered cutting machine (the shearer) is passed across the exposed face of coal, shearing away broken coal, which is continuously hauled away by a floor-level conveyor system ( Figure E.2 ).
The overall coal mining process consists of several sequential stages (1) exploration of a potentially economic coal seam to assess minable reserves, environmental issues, marketable reserves, potential markets, and permitting risks (2) analysis and selection of a mining plan (3) securing the markets (4) developing the mine (5) extracting the coal (6) processing the coal if necessary and (7)
long-wall mining, where a long wall of coal is mined in a single slice, usually by a large machine. sub-level-caving, where levels of the ore are blasted by explosives and block caving, where large areas of the ore body are blasted and then extracted with the assistance of gravity. We use these three different types of underground mining techniques for coal, diamonds and copper. 3. Underwater mining
Choosing a mining method. The various methods of mining a coal seam can be classified under two headings, surface mining and underground mining. Surface and underground coal mining are broad activities that incorporate numerous variations in equipment and methods, and the choice of which method to use in extracting a coal seam depends on many technological, economic, and social factors.

Jan 27, 2016 Underground coal mining mainly include the process of drift, slope, and shaft mining, and actual mining methods include longwall and room and pillar mining. Drift Mines enter the side of a hill horizontally and mine the coal within the hill. Slope mines usually begin in a valley bottom, and a tunnel slopes down to the coal surface.
Jan 25, 2018 Surface mining and deep underground mining are the two main methods of mining coal. Depth, density, and thickness of the coal seam are the factors that are taken into account while selecting the mining method for coal extraction. However, many coals extracted by using these two methods need washing in a coal preparation plant.
China, as the largest coal-producing and -consuming country in the world, is highly dependent on its coal industry, or Black Gold industry, for the national energy and economy. The consequent environmental crises, however, have persisted for decades, and the most serious effect is surface subsidence induced by underground mining. Underground coal excavation in China has ignored this ...
Oct 24, 2013 Through partnership among coal producers, equipment manufacturers, and research institutions, China developed the ultra-thick seam longwall mining system by stages prior to 2005, development and application concentrated on 4.3- to 5.5-m (14.1-18 ft) thick seams in 2007, the system applied to 6.3-m (20.7-ft) thick seams was introduced and in ...
The mining method selected for exploitation is determined mainly by the characteristics of the coal deposit and the limits imposed by safety, technology, environmental concerns, and economics.
In surface mining, the ground covering the coal seam (the overburden) is first removed to expose the coal seam for extraction. The elements of a surface mining operation are (1) topsoil removal and storage for later use, (2) drilling and blasting the strata overlying the coal seam, (3) loading and transporting this fragmented overburden material (called spoil), (4) drilling and blasting the ...
Large scale mechanised mining methods we use include long-wall mining, where a long wall of coal is mined in a single slice, usually by a large machine. sub-level-caving, where levels of the ore are blasted by explosives and block caving, where large areas of the ore body are blasted and then extracted with the assistance of gravity.
