Evaluation of dump slope stability of a coal mine using

20/08/2015· In this study, ANN is used to find out the factor of safety of coal mine dump slope. Here, 520 dump slope models are used to develop ANN. The range of overall dump height, overall slope angle, number of benches, hydrological condition, cohesion of dump material, and internal angle of friction of dump material are taken as input parameters and factor of safety is considered as an output

Methods applied in Australian industry to evaluate coal

01/03/2020· 1. State of the art. As part of Australian Coal Association Research Program (ACARP) funded research project C25078, to develop a new methodology for assessing coal mine slope stability, a survey was compiled and distributed to geotechnical engineers currently working as either employees or consultants in Queensland (QLD) and New South Wales (NSW) open cut coal mines.

Naomi Mine Explosion

The Naomi mine is a slope mine and one of the oldest operated by the United Coal Company which has its principal offices in Pittsburg. It is one of the biggest mines in the soft coal region and gave work to from 200 to 300 men all the year round. The property loss will be enormous as the mine was equipped at a cost of thousands of dollars with all the up to date mine appurtenances such as

New risk assessment method for coal mine excavated

This new empirical-statistical Slope Stability Assessment Methodology (SSAM) is intended for use by geotechnical engineers at both the design review and operational stages of a mine’s life to categorise the risk of an excavated coal mine slope. A likelihood of failure is determined using a new slope stability classification system for excavated coal mine slopes developed using a database of

ANTHRACITE COAL MINES AND MINING. eHISTORY

The term colliery includes the coal mine, with its buildings and appurtenances; the mine proper is underground. The entrance to it is by a drift, a slope, or a shaft. "Stripping,"—which is quarrying, and not mining at all,—is only possible where there is an outcrop of a thick bed of coal. The strippings are in the Lehigh and Schuylkill regions, where the coal is in the mountain tops. A

Slope Mining, Shaft Mining, Drift Mining, Mining

Based on the depth of the coal seam and the surrounding terrain, the decision of what type of mine to construct is decided. More or less all underground mines are not as much of 1,000 feet deep, but some mines reach depths of about 2,000 feet. As a rule, slope mines begin in a valley bottom, and a tunnel slopes down to the coal to be mined.

Slope mining Britannica

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

Slope mining Wikipedia

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.

Cwmbran Colliery

In about 1916 the Mine Slope was closed and the ventilating fan was moved to the Henllys shaft. In 1918 there were 1,032 men employed at Cwmbran, Henllys and Fire clay level. From a report 1923, there were 1,201 men employed producing from the Elled, Red Ash, Old Coal, Meadow Vein and Black vein seams. Production ceased in 1927.

Slope Construction and Rehabilitation

Slope Construction and Rehabilitation Construction of slopes and tunnels for mining purposes is one of the major sectors of our work. We have constructed many miles of slopes of various sizes both from the surface to underground and underground from location to location. Lengths have varied from a couple of hundred feet to well over a mile. Configurations have been plain unlined for

Morley Mine Can You Dig It

The Morley Slope access to the western side was five thousand four hundred feet in length, and had a pitch of 15%-26% for the first two thousand eight hundred feet. The Coal pulled from the mine by cart with mule often required a team of up to seven mules. Each haul consisted of twenty carts pulled to the main slope. Morley Mine by 1927, employed five hundred and forty workers and one hundred

Sample Rocks Tests and Slope Stability Analysis of a

The safety and stability of waste dump are vital influencing factors to the mine sustainability and mine employees. Based on a real mine project in a certain open-pit mine waste dump in Tibet, the in situ test on waste rocks from waste dump, including measurements of density, water content, rock size, and natural repose angle, was conducted. Afterwards, these sample waste rocks, of which grain
