WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) has found high rare earth element (REE) concentrations in coal samples taken from the Illinois, Northern Appalachian, Central Appalachian, Rocky Mountain Coal Basins, and the Pennsylvania Anthracite region.These highly concentrated samples are greater than 300 parts per million (ppm).

15.04.2019 · Concentrations in the lab-generated coal-dust samples were either very low or undetectable; the highest concentration measured in any of these samples was 0.0007 μg/g (i.e., 2 orders of magnitude less than in the mine dust samples). These results provide further evidence that coal dust should not present analytical interferences for the measurement of 1-NP (i.e., as a diesel .

Intermediate haulage in coal mines is provided by panel belts or by mine cars driven by locomotives. Panel belts have widths ranging from 90 to 150 centimetres, the wider belts being used with longwall panels. The use of mine cars and locomotives requires detailed considerations of shuttle-car dumping ramps, locomotive switching requirements, the inventory of mine cars, and track layout for ...

Frequent Questions About Coal Mine Methane | .Traduire cette page

To ensure mine safety, fresh air is circulated through underground coal mines using ventilation systems to dilute in-mine concentrations of methane to levels well below explosive levels. These concentrations are regulated by mine safety authorities in each country. Typically, methane concentrations in ventilation air range from 0.1 percent to 1.0 percent.

Best practice and recommendations

Under the Coal Mine Safety and Health Act 1999 and the Coal Mining Safety and Health Regulation 2017, if methane concentration is equal to or greater than 2.5% then the underground mine is dangerous and workers must be withdrawn from the mine. Methane is explosive between 5% and 15%. The Mines Inspectorate recently completed a series of compliance audits and requested methane gas .
