CDC - Mining Feature - Coal Mine Explosion Prevention -

09/12/2011  The worst disaster caused by a coal mine explosion in the U.S. occurred in 1907 when 362 miners were killed in Monongah, WV. How is methane controlled from mined-out areas? Coal mines generally have active mining zones and areas that were previously mined. These mined-out areas can be abandoned areas that are no longer ventilated and are separated from the active mining areas by explosion ...

Effects of rock dusting in preventing and reducing ...

To control an on-going coal mine explosion, the first important step is to lower the air temperature as fast as possible for the purpose of lowering the explosion pressure. The second important step is to prevent coal dust from participating into explosion so that the total thermal energy produced and the intensity of an explosion can be controlled. Properly applied rock dust can achieve both ...
