Improving UIS gas drainage in underground coal mines

Abstract


  • Gas drainage is considered one of the most effective controls in preventing coal and gas outbursts. The advances in

    mining equipment technology over the last 20 years have led to a significant increase in coal mine production, resulting

    in increased coal mine gas emission during the coal extraction process. High gas emissions, if not effectively managed,

    may exceed the diluting capability of the mine’s ventilation system, potentially exceeding the statutory limit, resulting in

    gas related production delays. The development of underground to inseam (UIS) gas drainage is discussed. The study is

    focused on a range of factors which impact gas drainage and proposes actions to improve drainage performance.
