Underground mining of thick coal seams ScienceDirect
But underground mining of a thick coal seam inherits a number of geotechnical challenges which makes it difficult for mining and mechanization. Multislice working of a thick coal seam is a normal choice to reduce operational constraints and optimize recovery and safety during underground mining.
Effect of coal mining on vegetation disturbance and ...
These controls allowed other factors affecting NDVI to be separated from coal mining to highlight the change in NDVI in the coal mine area owing to the disturbance of the vegetation by coal mining. This indicated that continuous coal mining has had a negative effect on the vegetation in the mining area.
Study on Influence and Evaluation of Coal Mining on Envionment
Through the synthetically analysis of the characteristics of coal mining and the environment quality of the mining area, the environment quality evaluation index system is formed: water and soil environment quality are the principal layer, the influence factors are measure layer.
