Who Should Participate? People active in the design and operation of surface mines for coal and other bedded materials such as china clay, phosphate, tar sands, uranium, etc. People who prepare reclamation plans for these mines. Similarly, people who prepare permit applications and environmental impact assessments for these mines. Environmental resources and reclamation managers What You Will Learn Part 1 provides an introduction and glossary of terms. Part 2 discusses the "Nature of coal-mine overburden," including distribution of coal fields in North America, the kinds of sedimentary strata found typically above and below the coal, the connection between the depositional environment and the types of contaminants found in the overburden, and the connection between rhealogical changes when the overburden is submerged in a groundwater regime and the rock types. In Part 3 we look at "Overburden Analysis" and the kinds of tests that can be used to predict contamination and rhealogical changes. Part 4 looks at "Potential reclamation problems from routine overburden handling," which is a catalog of potential problems and is meant to reinforce the need for good planning of overburden handling. Part 5 goes over the process of "Disposal of inimical material," which is often essential to the economic success of a surface mine but can lead, if done haphazardly, to the need for almost perpetual care and treatment of discharged waters. In Part 6 we get to the heart of the course, for which the earlier materials provide the foundation, "Improved handling techniques of surface coal-mine overburden." Examples are presented and diagnosed for each of the major coal surface-mining geometries. Part 7 - Conclusions reviews the major parts of the course and suggests that individual designs, responsive to the goals of the course, may need to be tested on sophisticated mine-design software to optimize production before buying capital goods.

This course is the fourth in a comprehensive series of five mine ventilation courses by the author, written for practicing professionals. The complete series includes the following titles: Mine Ventilation 1 - Introduction Mine Ventilation 2 - Hazard Awareness Mine Ventilation 3 - Design Basics Mine Ventilation 4 - Advanced Design Mine Ventilation 5 - Operations The basic focus for this course series is on airflow engineering. This is because getting the right amount of fresh air to the workplace is the single most important success factor in meeting the quality and quantity requirements of an efficient, safe and healthy underground mining operation. The courses are also designed to ensure the ventilation practitioner has an adequate understanding of at least the basic issues involved in mine ventilation, and therefore knows when a ventilation problem is of such magnitude as to need to call in a specialist, and has sufficient background to be able to liaise technically with that specialist. Mine Ventilation 4 - Advanced Design covers pressure, volume and temperature measurement, and design of development, auxiliary, production and fixed plant ventilation for hardrock and coal mining. Major topics covered include... Pressure, Volume and Temperature Measurement Development and Auxiliary Ventilation Production and Fixed Plant Ventilation Hardrock Mine Ventilation Design and Practices Coal Mine Ventilation Design and Practices Authors Rick Brake   Duration 22 hours Access 90 Days Category Mining Level Specialize Version Date           August 20, 2009   ​Need to train a team?

  This is a training course for all mine personnel involved in surface mining and quarrying. The course is an overview of the major safety issues pertaining to surface mines and quarries. It is meant to introduce hazards rather than provide in-depth safety training on the many hazards present on a mine site. Because every operation is different, you may not encounter all of the situations presented. There may be others that are specific to your mine that are not included here. If so, you should be made aware of these through training and/or working with an experienced mentor. Your mine is required to provide the training and equipment necessary to keep you as safe as possible while working on the property. It is up to you to learn this information, and to use it. The video clips used in this training are taken from the NIOSH video "Aggregate Training for the Safety Impaired: Safety Training for Everyone Else". Although the hazards associated with surface mining are presented in a humorous fashion, each of the safety issues presented should be given serious attention. You will watch two new hires, Ted and Slick, who do not take safety seriously, and who suffer the consequences. They learn some valuable lessons from older, wiser miners, on how to keep themselves safe on the job. Your safety is no laughing matter…this training should be used to keep you out of harm's way while you learn how to be a safe, productive worker. While the mandates of the mining regulatory agencies are law in the US, they are also comprehensive enough to be considered best practice for mining in countries throughout the world. The author is a Certified Mine Safety Professional as well as an MSHA Certified Instructor for both surface and underground. This course material was developed originally for the US National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) and is compliant with MSHA regulations. Authors Elaine T.

This is a training course for all mine personnel involved in underground coal mining. The course is an overview of the major safety issues pertaining to flame cutting and welding in coal mines. It is meant to introduce hazards rather than provide in-depth safety training on the many hazards present on a mine site. Because every operation is different, you may not encounter all of the situations presented. There may be others that are specific to your mine that are not included here. If so, you should be made aware of these through training and/or working with an experienced mentor. Your mine is required to provide the training and equipment necessary to keep you as safe as possible while working on the property. It is up to you to learn this information, and to use it. The video clips used in this training are taken from the NIOSH video "Tame the Flame: Flame Cutting and Welding Safety for Underground Coal Miners". Coal mines can be dangerous places. They are developed in solid fuel and are constantly leaking methane, commonly known as natural gas. Miners can work safely in these environments, but if things go wrong, it can be disastrous. The explosion that occurred at the Upper Big Branch Mine in West Virginia, USA, on April 5th, 2010, killed 29 miners. While MSHA (the US Mine Safety and Health Administration) had not yet determined exactly what happed at Upper Big Branch at the time this course was written, it is clear to all that it was a gas explosion. Other explosions in mines in China and elsewhere in the U.S. have claimed thousands of lives. While this training course focuses on coal mines, other types of mines can be considered gassy. If you are working in any of these mines, you must know how to do it safely. A simple mistake could cause the entire mine to blow up, killing you and everyone in the area. The video clips included in this training show miners at three coal mines in the US, two in Kentucky and one out west in Wyoming. Your host, Ted Teske, visits these mines and learns from experts at all three about the dangers associated with using flame cutting torches and welders when methane is present. Most importantly, he learns how to protect himself and the others in the mine. While the mandates of the mining regulatory agencies are law in the US, they are also comprehensive enough to be considered best practice for mining in countries throughout the world.
