Underground mining of thick coal seams - ScienceDirect

This paper reviews underground mining methods for total thickness of a thick coal seam in single lift (TTTCSSL). Review shows the required engineering for extraction of thick seams needs to be fitted with thickness of the seam, behavior of rock-mass and surrounding stress conditions for efficient mining. Variants of TTTCSSL are able to extract a maximum 10–12 ...

Thick seam coal mining and its ground control -

01/01/2017  At present, there are two commonly used mining methods for the thick coal seam mining: large-cutting-height longwall mining and top coal caving longwall mining. 2. The large-cutting-height mining for the 3–5.5 m thick seams has been used successfully in China, Australia, and South Africa. The technology of ground control has become increasingly mature. And the larger-than-6 m-high mining ...

Thick-seam mining. Coal seams as much as five metres thick can be mined in a single “lift” by the longwall method, and seams up to seven metres thick have been extracted by conventional mining systems in one pass. However, when a seam exceeds these thicknesses, its extraction usually involves dividing the seam into a number of slices and mining each slice with longwall, continuous, or ...

13/07/2020  Companies mining coal in the Powder River Basin and southern Montana region are blessed with thick coal deposits ranging anywhere between 25 and 100 feet. Traditionally, coal quality has been derived using a quality model composited over the full seam thickness. With this approach, a single quality is evaluated for the entire seam thickness. With no ability to consider the variability of ...

24/02/2020  The total thickness of the No.4 Seam in the Kriel coal field is generally between 4 and 5 m thick, where the top seam attains a thickness of 1.5 to 2 m. The No 4 seam is regionally overlain by a thick interlaminated shale-sandstone/siltstone and underlain by a typical white Ecca sandstone layer. Glauconitic sandstone, indicative of transgressive marine periods, is present above the Nos. 4 and ...

Underground mining of thick coal seams - ScienceDirect

01/11/2015  One-slice longwall mining of a thick coal seam, with the help of special equipment, provides an opportunity for single lift working of 6–7 m thick coal seams. Some special variants of longwall and room and pillar mining, involving natural or induced caving of roof coal band for the extraction of TTTCSSL, are able to extract a maximum thickness of 10–12 m only.

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 ...

In Turkey, mining of thick coal seams is often carried out employing longwall methods. According to Hartman and Mutmansky (2002), longwall mining is an exploitation method used in flat-lying and tabular deposits, where a long face is established to extract the mineral. In coal longwall mining, large blocks of coal seam (about 300 m wide and 2 to 3 km long) are developed by driving headings ...
