  • Comparison of Gas and Water Pycnometry of Coal Mine Wastes

    Coal mine washery wastes comprise two major components whose specific gravities differ markedly. Consequently, their specific gravity is much more variable than that of natural soils and is determined relatively frequently. The specific gravity of coal mine wastes is determined more rapidly and efficiently by gas pycnometry than by water pycnometry. However, the two methods give significantly ...

  • Wastewater treatment for mining camps/oil and gas camps

    Mining and oil and gas camps operating in remote and environmentally sensitive areas become home to large work forces for extended periods of time. Supplying water for domestic use and treating large volumes of sewage and greywater can be a complex and expensive challenge. Improper wastewater treatment can lead to pollution of the surrounding ecosystems. Many jurisdictions have tightened ...

  • Cleaner Production in the Mining Industry: Mount Isa Mines

    MIM Holdings Limited has implemented a program of innovations which has enabled the company to open a new mine and add new electricity-using activities while cutting total annual electricity use and carbon dioxide emissions. MIM has committed to the Australian Governmentís Greenhouse Challenge. This Federal and State Government sponsored initiative requires companies to reduce emissions of carbon ...


  • Acid mine drainage treatment

    Acid mine/rock drainage is a rampant problem in the world today. The above photo depicts acid drainage at an abandoned mine in the Yukon Territory of northwest Canada. This mine shares a similar history to thousands of other mines throughout the world. It was in operation for six short years in the 1950’s, producing gold ore. Its profitability eventually failed and it was abandoned. In the ...

  • Case study - From mines to the slopes

    At ABUTEC, the only thing we like more than having fun is helping OTHERS have fun! That’s why we were excited about a project recently with the Oxbow Coal Mine in Somerset, Colo. For more than 100 years, Oxbow has been free-venting all of the methane from the mine, which ends up being approximately $1 million worth of fuel sent into the atmosphere with nothing to show for it. However, ...


  • Donald Blankenship Charged in Mine Disaster

    Former chief executive of Massey Energy Company, Donald Blankenship, was charged for multiple violations of safety rules and deceit of federal inspectors that ultimately led to the death of 29 coal miners during a single incident in 2010; the deadliest mine incident since 1970. Indicted on four criminal counts by a federal grand jury in the Upper Big Branch disaster, Blankenship faces a ...

  • Closures of mine a new challenge for Romania

    AbstractThe mining activity is one of the oldest activity in Romania, dating from the year 100 B.C. The gold and silver ores represented one of the riches of our country. In time the economic content of metals diminuend, and the ore mines become non profitable. Due to this situation the best option of the State was the closure and ecological rehabilitation of the mines.The steps for the ...


  • Intelligent valve actuators in the mining industry

    Overview In mining, as in other hazardous industries, flow control equipment makes a vital contribution to efficiency and safety. Numerous operations, both on the surface and underground, depend upon the reliable control of fluids and gases which is generally achieved using valves, actuators and associated equipment. Underground areas of application include pumping stations, ...

  • GenRel: A computerised model for reliability prediction of mining machinery

    This paper discusses ongoing research regarding the application of theoretical probability distributions to a reliability assessment model called GenRel. GenRel is a computer model for reliability analysis of mining equipment based on Genetic Algorithms (GAs). The reliability changes over time due to several covariates/factors (e.g., equipment age, operating environment, repairs). In our model, ...

  • The Gasplasma process: its application in enhanced landfill mining

    Abstract A key component in the ELFM concept is the provision of an advanced thermal conversion technology as an integral part of the process. The two stage thermal Gasplasma™ process developed by APP is designed to produce both a refined syngas which is capable of being fed directly to a gas engine for the efficient recovery of energy and an environmentally stable, vitrified ...

  • Application of data mining techniques in building predictive models for oil and gas problems: a case study on casing corrosion prediction

    This paper describes the use of (supervised) data mining to predict casing corrosion in carbon geological storage projects. This study discusses: 1) data pre–processing such as missing value handling and discretisation; 2) feature selection methods such as correlation coefficient, signal–to–noise ratio, information gain, Gini index, and the k–nearest neighbour (KNN) approach; 3) classification ...

  • Lightning Detectors: Safety Within The Mining Industry

    There have many instances of deaths or injuries to mining employees as well as damage to equipment due to lightning strikes in the mining industry. These incidents could have been prevented with the use of a quality lightning detector and a “Lightning Safety Plan” that is strictly enforced by both management and all employees. There are too many cases of lightning strikes causing ...

  • Abandoned Wells and Mines as Underground Storage for Waste Management

    Abstract Albania is a rich country in oil, mineral and water sources as well as a very polluted one in Europe There are a lot of wastes that couldn’t be managed in existing circumstances. At the present many oil and gas fields are in the third or depleted phase of the exploitation, while a lot of mines are abandoned. In this frame the paper presents some considerations to use them as underground ...


  • Wastewater Mining and Reuse: Creating Benign Future Scenarios

    Wastewater mining: In addition to being perhaps the most uninviting combination of words, it sounds like a most unlikely idea. But for almost 30 years, Aqueonics, now headquartered in Greenville, SC, has pioneered such systems, starting in the ’80s, with its first wastewater mining project. For that project, Aqueonics provided an onsite or decentralized treatment system for a developer in ...

  • Position Brief on oil sands mining in Canada

    Background The oil sands (also called tar sands) in Canada are the second largest petroleum deposit in the world after Saudi Arabia and underlie about 140,000 square kilometres of land in northern Alberta, composed of woodlands and wetlands. Wetlands cover roughly half the landscape of the oil sands region and a vast majority of these wetlands are peatlands. Oil sands development has ...

  • A Neural Model for SPM Concentration Prediction in Coal Mines

    ABSTRACT Coal mines are the major sources of suspended particulate matter. To implement any control techniques or to install any control equipment around the coal mines, ambient concentration of suspended particulate matter should be known. In this paper a model is developed to find the concentration of suspended particulate matter at various locations away from the source. The model is ...


  • Electronic Waste: The Rich Resource in the Urban Mine

    Forgetting your mobile phone can be a real pain, playing on your mind during the day. Then as you think you can feel your phone vibrating in your pocket and you come to realise how dependent we are on our gadgets. Electrical equipment has changed our lives completely and we rely on phones, microwaves, TVs, kettles, computers to keep us informed, entertained and even alive. It is hard to imagine ...

  • In-Mine Field Trials of a Particulate Filter System with On-Board Electrical Regeneration
