Slope failure is one of the causes of safety and production losses in open pit coal mining in Indonesia often related to complexity in the rock mass and weak rock strength materials. In depth knowledge of slope behaviour and failure mechanisms is
DETECTING PROBLEMS WITH MINE SLOPE STABILITY Jami M. Girard1 and Ed McHugh1 1National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, Spokane Research Laboratory . ABSTRACT . Slope stability accidents are one of the leading causes of fatalities at U.S. surface mining
In slope and shaft mines, miners removed coal in a four-step process undercutting, drilling, blasting, and loading. First, miners used picks to carve a 3- to 4-foot wedge into the lower part of the face of the coal seam, usually on their knees or lying on their sides.

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.
Slope mine – An underground mine with an opening that slopes upward or downward to the coal seam. Sloughing - The slow crumbling and falling away of material from roof, rib, and face. Solid - Mineral that has not been undermined, sheared out, or otherwise prepared for blasting.
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
Eleven coal mines operate in Colorado, including eight underground mines in Delta, Garfield, Gunnison, La Plata, Rio Blanco, and Routt counties, and three surface mines in Moffat and Montrose counties. All active coal mines are on the western slope, although the New Elk coal mine in Las Animas County is expected to reopen in 4th quarter 2010.
The 190 Slope, Lackawanna Mine Tour is the most extensive anthracite mine tour in Northeast PA. Through the knowledgeable tour guides you will learn how anthracite was mine in the northern field. On average your tour will last about an hour. The mine stopped producing coal in 1966 and was abandoned for 20 years before being reopened be a few ...
Slope Mining With fast progress of modern industry, the demand for products manufactured from metal ores has gone up literally. In order to meet this demand, the awareness of uninterrupted mining, which can sharply elevate stope productivity and cut mining costs, has become a big trend in the development of mining techniques in underground mines.

The paper aims to identify a reasonable method for mining ultra-thick coal seams in an end-slope in surface mine. With a case study of Heidaigou surface coal mine (HSCM), the paper conducted a comparative research on three mining methods, namely Underground Mining Method (UMM), Highwall Mining System (HMS) and Local Steep Slope Mining Method (LSSMM).
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.
Coal mining, extraction of coal deposits from the surface of Earth and from underground. Coal is the most abundant fossil fuel on Earth. Its predominant use has always been for producing heat energy. It was the basic energy source that fueled the Industrial Revolution of the 18th and 19th
Pennsylvania's rich coal mining history dates back centuries to the late 1700s and boomed between 1870 and 1930. After the boom, the industry began a steady decline that continues to the present day. In fact, between September 2014 and April 2016, the industry as a whole in the U.S. lost an ...
The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection's Office of Active and Abandoned Mine Operations has collaborated with Pennsylvania State University to produce the Pennsylvania Mine Map Atlas.

The Scrantons, realizing that there was money to be made from coal, began to concentrate on its mining and transportation in the 1850's. Their efforts led to the formation of the Delaware, Lackawanna & Western Railroad. The railroad company controlled a network of coal mines that had mined and shipped two million tons of coal by 1868.
The Gravity Slope mines operated until October 5, 1955. When the D & H Coal Company shut down their operations along the river, mine water began seeping into the Gravity Slope and other collieries. This proved to be too much for the pumps to handle. As more and more pumps were dismantled, the colliery could no longer operate.

Nanticoke, Pa. -- On Friday, Dec. 18, 1885, scores of men and boys went to work just as they did every other day at Nanticoke's Susquehanna No. 1 slope mine. Their thoughts were surely focused on the duties of the day in the deep coal mine, as well as Christmas, which was a week away. Twenty-six of them would not live to celebrate the holiday.
