Systems to limit coal dust methane explosions in collieries
In response to the need for enhanced precautionary measures to safeguard mine workers in collieries from the consequesnces of methane ingnitions in a heading, the coal mining industry has expressed the desire for the development and
Strategies to monitor atmospheres in sealed-off panels
Many South African coal mines contain large areas sealed off from the mine ventilation. These areas contain an atmosphere sampled only at or near the seals. The research described in this report was commissioned to examine whether the
