The Advantages of Open Pit Mining Sciencing

Mar 13, 2018Open pit mining does offer some advantages over traditional deep shaft mining. Pit mining is more cost effective than shaft mining because more ore can be extracted and more quickly. The working conditions are safer for the miners because there is no risk of cave in or toxic gas. Open pit mining is the preferred

IEEFA Update Taxpayer Exposure to U.S. Coal Reclamation

A report that came out last month from the nonpartisan Government Accountability Office recommends that Congress eliminate the risky system of self-bonding by coal-mining companies. But the report also raises concerns about the financial stability of surety-bond companies, a much more common form of reclamation bonding, as well as problems with underfunding for mine cleanup costs.

Deep mining Mining Geomechanics

In recent years, a number of Chinese underground coal mines have reached a mining depths in excess of 1000m in China. An increase in depth results in a high stress environment, high gas content and pressure and lower permeability, which presents greater risks to safe mining operations. In collaboration with China's Huainan Mining (Industry) Group,

Jul 30, 2018As more proposals are submitted, the Coal Authority is now telling planning authorities they may need to consider issues such as ground stability, mine gas and hydrogeology in areas where there are deep abandoned mines. Previously, the organisation responded only where there were high risks to development on the surface from shallow workings.

Much accelerated runoff and erosion is caused by soil compaction that reduces the land's capacity to absorb rainwater.
