Underground mining of thick coal seams ScienceDirect

Nov 01, 2015 But underground mining of a thick coal seam inherits a number of geo-technical challenges which makes it difficult for mining and mechanization. Multi-slice working of a thick coal seam is a normal choice to reduce operational constraints and optimize recovery and safety during underground mining.

Coal Mining, Kentucky Geological Survey, University of

Sep 18, 2019 Shaft mines are the deepest mines; a vertical shaft with an elevator is made from the surface down to the coal. In western Kentucky, one shaft mine reaches 1,200 feet below the surface. In room and pillar mining, the most common type of underground coal mining, coal seams are mined by a continuous miner that cuts a network of "rooms" into the seam.

Coal seam Energy Education

A coal seam is a dark brown or black banded deposit of coal that is visible within layers of rock. These seams are located underground and can be mined using either deep mining or strip mining techniques depending on their proximity to the surface. These seams undergo normal coal formation and serve as a conventional coal resource.The reserves of coal are immense, and are the largest of all of

Coal mining Choosing a mining method Britannica

Coal mining Coal 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

Coal seam geology Britannica

In coal mining: Underground mining medium, which consists of the coal seam and the overlying and underlying strata. Access to the coal seam is gained by suitable openings from the surface, and a network of roadways driven in the seam then facilitates the installation of service facilities for such essential activities as human and material

How does structure effects on coal seam and its mining

In underground operations, if the dip of the coal seams steepens, it can make the working of the coal difficult, and in the case of long wall mining, prevent further extraction. Therefore it is important to be sure that all readings taken reflect the true nature of the structure in the area of investigation.

A Simplified Calculation Method for Ultimate Mining

Coal seam mining is one of the most widely participated engineering activities in China. This study examined the failure process induced by underground thin coal seam mining of Wangxia perilous rock in Chongqing, China. Numerical simulation was conducted on the stress, displacement and plastic deformation with Fast Lagrangian Analysis of Continua 3D (FLAC3D).
