This paper describes the application of Q-slope classification system to 38 failed and intact slopes from Australian open cut coal mines. It further describes the relationship between Q-slope and Slope Stability ...

This week's focus is Robert Peloli, one of Washington's legendary coal miners pictured at that mine's Skookum Slope riding a coal car being hoisted from the mine. When this photo was taken on March 18, 1944, Peloli was a 20-year-old coal miner and the son of Italian immigrants. Peloli began work in the Skookum Slope of the Wilkeson Products mine shortly …...Slope mining is a method of accessing valuable geological material, such as coal or ore.A sloping access shaft travels downwards towards desired material. Slope mines differ from shaft and drift mines, which access resources by tunneling straight down or horizontally, respectively.In slope mining, the primary access to the mine is on an incline.

Parc Slip Colliery was a coal mine near situated at Aberkenfig, near Tondu in Bridgend County Borough, Wales.. History. This pit was opened in the 1860s by John Brogden and Sons.In 1872 Brogdens merged with the Llynfi Coal and Iron Company Ltd to make the Llynfi, Tondu and Ogmore Coal and Iron Company...becoming a major concern. Slope failures cause loss of production, extra stripping cost for recovery and handling of failed material, dewatering the pits and sometimes lead to mine abandonment/premature closure. Maintaining pit slope angles that are as steep as possible is of vital importance to the reduction of

In the present study four cut slopes from a coal mine in Wardha Valley Coal field have been analyzed using empirical and kinematic tools. The study …...These slope failure accidents in Indian mines have taken place due lack of sound design of slopes and lack of monitoring. So, the coal industry has identified slope design, monitoring and stabilization as one of the thrust areas. Table 1.1 Accidents due to highwall failure in Indian opencast coal mines (DGMS report, 2016)

Slope. A slope road, also known as a slant (in Wales), downbrow, or gug (Somerset) was a roadway driven at an angle to a level course. Sough. A sough is a drainage tunnel to take water from coal mines without the need to pump it to the surface. An example is the Great Haigh Sough. Snap or bait...Slope stability is a prominent problem for the efficient application and promotion of highwall mining technology, especially when mining residual coal under high and steep end-slope conditions.

Old Slope Coal Mine (GC63JCJ) was created by wiifly on 9/15/2015. It's a Regular size geocache, with difficulty of 2, terrain of 2. It's located in British Columbia, Canada. The final coords are at N49 12.254 W124 02.174 for this cache and is given temporarily until the first two stages can be relocated. The area of the first two stages is ...Abstract Coal and lignite (brown coal) are geo-resources that govern energy production for decades. Geomechanical challenges, particularly slope stability, related to surface coal and lignite mines are critical during operation and determine the post-coal era. Several failure incidents have been reported in mining areas, typically associated with a sub …

Advance detection of Slope failures in Opencast Coal Mines using Microseismic technology. Dr. L. Ajay Kumar1), S. Vinoth2), E. Kumar2), M. Suresh Kumar2) Abstract: The application of microseismic monitoring in opencast coal mines provides an ideal method for the analysis of slope status. Since slope angles are critical to the economics of open pit mining, micro …...Western Slope coal mines face uncertain future The. Mike Moran Business Times. These are challenging times for the coal industry in Western Colorado. As political and economic pressure builds to force power plants to Read More.

In coal mining: Access …three types of portal: drift, slope, and shaft. Where a coal seam outcrops to the surface, it is common to drive horizontal entries, called drifts, into the coal seam from the outcrop. Where the coal seam does not outcrop but is not far below the surface, it is accessed by… Read More...A new perspective is presented for evaluating the slope stability of coal and lignite mines due to rainfall. The case of Greek lignite mining areas is employed to illustrate the methodology. Initially, past climatic records of rainfall are documented and analyzed; rainfall intensity varies from light (0.8 mm/h) to heavy (up to 9 mm/h).

Reclaiming steep-slope coal mines in the eastern US for successful reforestation by D. Kumar and R.J. Sweigard Abstract nA methodology has been developed and demonstrated to be effective in reclaiming surface-mined land for a forestry post-mining land use. The forestry reclamation approach (FRA) has been applied, almost exclusively, to lat or gently rolling …...Drift mines enter horizontally into the side of a hill and mine the coal within the hill. Slope mines usually begin in a valley bottom, and a tunnel slopes down to the coal to be mined. 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. …

After intense, non-partisan, public pressure, in opposition to coal strip mining on Alberta's Eastern Slopes, the United Conservative Party has reinstated the 1976 Coal Policy and has begun a consultation process with Albertan's. However, many questions remain.

A likelihood of failure is determined using a new slope stability classification system for excavated coal mine slopes developed using a database of 119 intact and failed case studies sourced from open cut coal mines in Australia. Consequence of failure is based on slope height and stand-off distance at the toe of the excavated slope. Results are presented in a new risk …...Keywords Dump slope Coal mine, artificial neural network Back propagation Finite element method 1 Introduction Since 1970s, the Indian mining industry has witnessed a sea change, particularly in Coal mining.

The Skookum Slope mine is located outside the town of Wilkeson WA in Pierce County WA. Other workings near this mine had closed in 1883. In 1942 the mine was re-opened with a new slope sunk by the Wilkeson Coal and Coke Company. An agreement was enacted between the U.S. Defense Plant Corp. and Wilkeson Products Company to produce coal for industries in …...Cedar Mountain Coal Mine – The Big Mine Slope. The second hole in the ground was dug by the Cedar Mountain Coal Company in 1888. They had abandoned the first slope and moved across the river.
