Mining the Coal. Coal minersuse giant machines to remove coalfrom the ground. They use two methods:surface or underground mining. Many U.S.coal beds are very near the ground’s surface, and abouttwo-thirds of coal production comes from surface mines. Modern mining methods allow us to easily reach most of our coal reserves.
The overallcoal mining processconsists of several sequential stages: (1) exploration of a potentially economiccoalseam to assess minable reserves, environmental issues, marketable reserves, potential markets, and permitting risks; (2) analysis and selection of amining plan; (3) securing the markets; (4) developing themine; (5) extracting thecoal; (6)processingthecoalif necessary; and (7) …Read more +
Coal mining,extraction of coal deposits from the surface of Earth from underground. Coal has been used since the Bronze Age, 3,000 to 4,000 years ago, and was the basic energy source that fueled the Industrial Revolution of the 18th and 19th centuries.Read more +
Dec 22, 2012·Underground mining,sometimes called deep mining, is a process thatretrieves coal from deep below the Earth’s surface—sometimesas far as 300 meters (1,000 feet). Miners travel by elevator down a mine shaft to reach the depths of the mine, and operate heavy machinery that extracts the coal and moves it above ground.Read more +
In surfacemining, the ground covering thecoalseam (the overburden) is first removed to expose thecoalseam for extraction. The elements of a surfaceminingoperation are (1) topsoil removal and storage for later use, (2) drilling and blasting the strata overlying thecoalseam, (3) loading and transporting this fragmented overburden material (called spoil), (4) drilling and blasting the ...Read more +

This is known as the cakingprocess. The quality of the resultant coke is determined by the qualities of the coking coals used, as well as the coke plant operating conditions. Coke quality is largely influenced bycoalrank, composition, mineral content and the ability to soften when heated, become plastic, and resolidify into a coherent mass.Read more +
There are four mainminingmethods: underground, open surface (pit), placer, and in-situmining. Underground mines are more expensive and are often used to reach deeper deposits. Surface mines are typically used for more shallow and less valuable deposits. Placerminingis used to sift out valuable metals from sediments in river channels, beach sands, or other environments.Read more +
Coal-Coal- Problems associated with the use ofcoal:Coalis abundant. Assuming that current rates of usage and production do not change, estimates of reserves indicate that enoughcoalremains to last more than 200 years. There are, however, a variety of problems associated with the use ofcoal.Miningoperations are hazardous. Each year hundreds ofcoalminers lose their lives or are ...Read more +

Coalis mined by both surface or ‘opencut’ (or opencast) and underground or ‘deep’miningmethods, depending on the local geology of the deposit. Undergroundminingcurrently accounts for about 60 per cent of worldcoalproduction but around 80 per cent of Australia’scoalis produced from opencut mines.Read more +
In surfacemining, all of the rock from the ground surface to the top of the seam (material referred to as overburden) is removed and set aside to expose thecoal, which is then taken out and transported from theminefor preparation and use (Figure 11). With undergroundmining, in contrast, a series of openings is made from the surface to the ...Read more +
