Structure instability forecasting and analysis of giant ...

Steeply dipping thick coal seams (SDTCS) are common in the Urumqi coalfield, and some dynamical hazards such as roof collapse and mining- induced seismicity occur frequently in the coal mines. The cause of these events is mainly structure instability in giant rock pillars sandwiched between SDTCS.

Working thin dipping or steeply dipping seams in open-cut ...

As the Central Kuzbass open-cut mines become older, the necessity of working thin seams will be increasingly felt. This is particularly true for the Novosergeevsk and Bachatsk opencut mines, in which up to 20% of the reserves of good coking coal is contained in thin seams.
