Benchmarking Study of Underground Coal Mine Logistics

Report


Type Of Work


  • Report

Abstract


  • This Benchmarking Study was commissioned in December 2018 by Australian Coal Research LTD to investigate the management of Logistics within underground coal mines in Australia and consider mechanisms that might be utilised to ensure the movement of personnel and materials in and around a mine is achieved in a timely and efficient manner. With the desire to optimise the development of roadways in underground coal mines as operations expand, it logically followed that any increase in the development rate will require more efficient logistics management, especially the timely supply of roof support materials (bolts, chemicals and mesh) to each active face area.

    This study has undertaken a range of site visits underground coal mines, a consideration of the various constraints associated with underground coal mining operations, a review of how logistics management is addressed in various mines, and the development of conclusions/recommendations with the primary aim to support the efficient movement of personnel and essential materials in and around an underground coal mine.
