INTRODUCTION In recent times, a number of underground coal mine development projects in the Bowen Basin region of Queensland Australia have been undertaken.

On Alternative Technology to Conventional Coal

1979-1-1  On alternative technology to conventional coal mining and in fact this applies up to x for opencast and between x and JC for underground mining. On the other hand, in the case of a curve such as k,only opencast mining under favourable conditions is more economic, that is to say that up to abscissa point x it is less costly than extraction via boreholes.

2018-1-25  Developed as an alternative for room and pillar mining, Longwall mining is an advanced technique of underground mining to extract coal. It is used to mine a long wall of coal that is a few kilometres long and some hundred meters wide.
