The Division of Mines and the federal Mine Safety and Health Administration jointly review and approve roof control plans and supplements. Roof control specialists are available to give safety talks, discuss health and safety issues, and teach certain classes such as new miner training, annual retraining, and continuing education classes. Inertisation strategies and practices in underground coal mines J J L du Plessis Appendix 4: Inertisation strategies and practices in underground coal mines 5 List of Tables Page control methods that mines use, can be easily audited.
This book addresses the hazard of gas explosions in sealed underground coal mines, and how the risk of explosion can be assessed, modeled, and mitigated. With this text, coal mine operators and managers will be able to identify the risks that lead to underground mine gas explosions, and implement practical strategies to optimize mining safety. Developments in controlling the roof in South African coal mines—a smarter approach by P. Altounyan* and D. Taljaard† Synopsis Techniques used to safely control the roof in UK coal mines for some 10 years have been applied to a South African coal mine. This new approach known in .
(a) (1) Each mine operator shall develop and follow a roof control plan, approved by the District Manager, that is suitable to the prevailing geological conditions, and the mining system to be used at the mine. Additional measures shall be taken to protect persons if unusual hazards are encountered. (2) The proposed roof control plan and any revisions to the plan shall be submitted, in writing. explosions occurring in underground coal mines in the US. More accurately, those explosions were methane ignitions that propagated through the mines due to coal dust involvement; despite current explosion prevention standards. There are 4 basic strategies employed to manage the risk of coal dust explosions in many other coal mining.

Intrinsic Roof Support – An empirically based software package, Analysis of Roof Bolt Systems (ARBS), has been developed to assist in design of roof bolt systems in coal mines.
Surface Control – NIOSH Mining publications have documented the advantages of using roof screen or mesh to prevent ground fall injuries. However, rock fall accidents and injuries continue to occur in coal mines that have been supported according to the roof control plan.
Experience at coal mines with large numbers of falls indicates that many have weak roof. Control of this roof may require additional ground control measures. Utah. Ground conditions and roof bolt densities from three ma-jor coal mining countries are compared in figure 4 [Mark b].
Roof bolt design guidelines are presented elsewhere in these Proceedings [Mark ]. ROOF SPAN In underground coal mining, the excavation geometry does not vary much, but the span can be very important.

Advances in Productive, Safe, and Responsible Coal Mining covers the latest advancements in coal mining technology and practices.
It gives a comprehensive introduction to the latest research and technology developments, addressing problems and issues currently being faced, and is a valuable resource of complied technical information on the. Ground control in undergound mines 1.

The Coal Mine Roof Rating (CMRR) was developed by the U.S. Bureau of Mines as an engineering tool to quantify descriptive geologic information for use in coal mine design and roof support selection.

doi: / Among all United States underground coal fields, those in Illinois have the highest rate of roof fall events due to their weak and severely moisture sensitive roof rock units.
Rockmass characterization is the key initial step in designing safe and economical roof control measures in underground coal mines. In this study, a performance-based roof rockmass characterization is Cited by: 1.
Ø The goal of the planning and design of underground coal mining operations is a strategy for designing an integrated mineral exploitation system that will ensure that coal is extracted and prepared at a desired market specification, at a minimum unit cost, within acknowledged safety, health, social, legal and regulatory constraints.
Over the past decade, the U.S. Bureau of Mines (USBM) conducted longwall gate road stability studies at four mines in the Book Cliffs and Wasatch Plateau Coalfields of Utah. These operations are characterized by multiple-seam mining, abruptly varying cover depths to m (3, ft), and massive rigid sandstone units in the main roof or floor.
Monitoring and Sampling Approaches to Assess Underground Coal Mine Dust Exposures compares the monitoring technologies and sampling protocols currently used or required by the United States, and in similarly industrialized countries for the control of RCMD exposure in underground coal mines.
This report assesses the effects of rock dust. This request for collection of information contains provisions for Roof Control Plans for Underground Coal Start Printed Page Mines. MSHA has updated the data in respect to the number of respondents, responses, burden hours, and burden costs supporting this information collection extension request.
Most coal seams are too deep underground for opencast mining and require underground mining, a method that currently accounts for about 60 percent of world coal production. In deep mining, the room and pillar or bord and pillar method progresses along the seam, while pillars and timber are left standing to support the mine roof.
Once room and pillar mines have been developed to a stopping. A sound roof control plan is essential for controlling the roof, face and ribs, including coal or rock bursts in underground coal mines.
Each mine operator is required by 30 CFR (a) (1) to develop and follow a roof control plan, approved by the Mine Safety and HealthFile Size: KB. Based on geological and mining characteristics, coal mine roadways under complex conditions were divided into five types, for each type the deformation and damage characteristics of rocks surrounding roadways were analyzed.
The recent developments of roadway support technologies were introduced abroad, based on the experiences of supports for deep and complex roadways from Cited by: His career encompasses directing ground engineering research groups in South Africa and Australia; practical mining experience, including active participation in the mines rescue service and responsibility for the design, operation, and management of large underground coal mines and for the consequences of loss of ground control as a mine Cited by: Action to Terminate: All underground miners received extensive roof control re-training on Ap The approved roof control plan was revised to require the section foreman to authorize any cuts that exceed 20 feet.
A (a) Citation No. was issued. PREFACE On Octou.s. Bureau of Mines (USBM) researchers met with the West Virginia Board of Coal Mine Health and Safety (WV Board) to discuss roof bolting hazards in underground coal mines.
The WV Board had completed a nationwide investigation of roof. Roof falls in underground coal mines, which have detrimental consequences, are closely related to the geology of the mining environment, to the mining method and to the method of roof support or control.
It is often difficult to predict them because of the uncertainty associated with the inherent variability of the roof fall by: This book includes 14 chapters. It begins with the introduction of U.S. coal mining methods in chapter I.
Rock properties and in-situ stresses are described in chapter two. The geological conditions that form the rock strata and their anomalies as well as the geophysical methods employed to detect the anomalies are illustrated in chapter three.5/5(1).Roof control strategies for underground coal mines [microform] / by William C.
