Kentucky's Bitsource has a novel idea for a tech workforce: Laid-off coal industry professionals. Eastern Kentucky, once an epicenter of the U.S. coal industry, has seen jobs steadily dwindle in recent decades. Mining work — increasingly the work of engineers, rather than blue collar laborers — dwindled by an additional 2,000 jobs in 2015, marking the lowest mining employment in the region since the great depression. But one company in the small city Pikeville —population 7,000 — is capitalizing on a technical-minded, eager labor force to create a burgeoning tech industry. Called Bitsource, the company hired its staff with the unique goal of "teaching miners how to code." “The mind of a coal miner or an engineer, you know, they’re very technical. It’s not like what probably most people t...

Join Grant Wenker of the Carlson Mining division as he takes you step-by-step through the process necessary to flow from importing drillholes, making the block model, defining the grades to calculating tons and doing the pit design. See how chemistry attributes are modeled, divided into various grades of stone and reported. Learn how cross sections and 3D drillholes can be displayed for analyzing the reserve deposit. Finally, Grant will show you how to create the ultimate pit with Carlson's pit design and layout with 3D benches, thereby producing the finished product. Carlson Mining, utilized by 90 % of U.S. coal mining companies also produces technically advanc...

In Europe, lignite mined takes place for a large part in Germany and the lignite is expected to remain dominant fuel for electricity generation. There are supplies in Germany of 40 billion tons, enough for the next 250 years. One of these German lignite opencast mines where brown coal is extracted is Garzweiler . The name Garzweiler refers to the eponymous village in the municipality Jüchen, that disappeared by the extraction of lignite. The pit Garzweiler consists of two parts: Garzweiler I east of the A44 Garzweiler II west of the A44. Garzweiler II is 48 square kilometers and contains 1.3 billion tonnes of lignite. The operation started in 2006 and is expected to last to 2045. This will require 12 villages (with 7,600 inhabitants) to disappear. The lignite mining Garzwei...
http://www.siemens.com/mining - Siemens constructed a new coal conveyor system with a total length of 13.5 km at Reichwalde, in the Lusatian Lignite Mining Area in Germany. As a part of the modernization of the Reichwalde open-cast mine, Vattenfalls wanted to ensure the highest levels of reliability and efficiency for its machines and electrical equipment. Based on an extensive experience in building electrical installations for mining, Siemens offered a wide range of solutions and products for the entire life of the plant.

But Curtin’s Professor Erkan Topal sees value in waste... specifically, in better management of mine-site waste. Watch this video to see how his Top Dump mining waste management optimisation program is set to become a valuable addition to the world of mining software.

This 1980 MSHA film clip demonstrates various ventilation techniques to control dust including the use of proper face ventilation to effectively remove airborne dust. Over the years, some consensus has emerged on the best dust control practices. The NIOSH Publication, Handbook for Dust Control in Mining summarizes those practices and is available at http://www.cdc.gov/niosh/mining/pubs/pubreference/outputid20.htm . This handbook describes effective methods for the control of mineral dusts in mines and tunnels for different kinds of mines and mining equipment. This includes underground coal and hard-rock mines, as well as surface mines, stone mines, and hard-rock tunnels. Dust control methods described are practical and cost-effective for most mine operators. This is clipped from the 19...
This video shows a working model of an open cast mine. It has 3 faces and 2 drop zones -- one for coal and one for over burdon. The realistic graphics are a really powerful aid to help non-tech stakeholders visualise and understand the process. But the nice graphics hide the real power of the simulation; all scoops, loads, piles, travel distances, bottlenecks, breakdowns, and throughputs, are tracked and reported on. Experimentation of scenarios and optimisation of variables gives the ability to "play with" the number of resources available, and any other variable you need to examine.
