CDC Mining Geologic Hazards and Roof Stability in Coal

At the root of many injuries and fatalities are weak or defective roof strata. Throughout mining history, millions of miles of entry have provided exposure of every conceivable geologic roof hazard. This report describes the geologic origin, association, and potential danger from the most common hazards.

CDC Mining Topic Geologic Characterization NIOSH

Feb 20, 2020· The U.S. underground mine worker faces a continuing hazard from roof falls and other ground control related hazards. Many injuries and fatalities are related to mine roof that is weakened as a result of geologic factors. The roof may consist of rock that is inherently low in strength such as drawrock, thinly bedded rock, or mudstone.

CDC Mining Geologic Factors Causing Roof Instability

A geologic study of Mines 32 and 33 in Cambria County, Pennsylvania, was conducted as part of a methane control research program. Areas of high methane emission and roof instability are encountered; these are related to the structural and stratigraphic features that characterize the geologic setting of

CDC Mining An Approach to Identifying Geological

Identifying the properties of overlying rocks in underground mining operations is important to ensure the appropriate roof support design is used to maintain stability of the mine entries. Recently J. H. Fletcher & Co. developed a monitoring and control system for roof bolters for the underground mining industry.

CDC Mining Contract Ground Control Research to Improve

Sep 01, 2016· Underground stone mining involves geological hazards unseen in the rest of the industry and therefore is also presented with unique ground control and safety challenges. In particular, pillar and roof span design are often developed based on historical evidence, trial and error, or on a case-by-case basis by rock engineering experts.

CDC Mining Project Advanced Mining Seismicity

For these mines, monitoring seismicity can provide useful insights into mine design performance and help to identify and manage potential ground control hazards. However, the equipment, processing expertise, and software needed to monitor and locate mining-induced seismicity (MIS) can be prohibitively expensive.

Geohazards assessment in longwall coal mining using

The resulted geohazard may take the form of rockburst, coalburst, coal/gas outburst, rockfall, pillar burst and roof collapse, which can potentially affect personal safety and mine productivity. As mining continues to greater depths, the impact of seismic geohazards may

A methodology for evaluation and monitoring of recurring

Oct 01, 2011· For example, in mining worksystems, a number of hazards are frequently recurring. Complex nature of mining worksystem and inadequacy of safety systems lead to this frequent recurrence. Unsupported roof and side, unguarded transportation equipment, slippery roadways and poor housekeeping are but a few examples of such recurring hazards in mines.

Surface Subsidence and Collapse in Relation to Extraction

The U.S. Geological Survey conducts earth-science research, including field studies, so as to provide advance recognition and warning of many types of geologic-related hazards. Geologic processes and conditions that could result in harm to people and damage to property include earthquakes,

Other Geologic Hazards DCNR Homepage

Subsidence associated with the underground extraction of coal and minerals is a geologic hazard with a human twist. After a resource is removed from the ground, there may not be enough remaining material to support the roof of the mine. If that is the case, over time, the roof will collapse, and the sagging rock layers may propagate to the surface.
