Sensing and Monitoring Technologies for Mines and Hazardous Areas: Monitoring and Prediction Technologies presents the fundamentals of mining related geotechnical risk and how the latest advances in sensing and data communication can be used both to prevent accidents and provide early warnings.. Opencast mining operations involve huge quantities of overburden removal, dumping, and backfilling. mines can be further differentiated into “drift mines” or “shaft mines” depending on the mode of access to the underground workings. Access to deep mines can be either by means of a shaft (i.e. a vertical or sub-vertical tunnel) or an adit (an essentially horizontal or sub-horizontal tunnel from a hillside).File Size: 2MB.

In general the goals for any underground mine’s communication system are improved local and global communications within a system that is simple to use, improving health and safety. One important direction in which this is all moving are comprehensive systems that . Underground hard rock mining refers to various underground mining techniques used to excavate hard minerals, usually those containing metals such as ore containing gold, silver, iron, copper, zinc, nickel, tin and lead, but also involves using the same techniques for excavating ores of gems such as diamonds or rubies. Soft rock mining refers to excavation of softer minerals such as salt, coal.

However, ever since the introduction of continuous miners in the late s, room-and-pillar continuous mining has been gaining ground over conventional room-and-pillar mining. Types of Underground Mining Underground mining for coal is conducted by either room and pillar mining or longwall mining. In room and pillar mining, approximately 50 percent of the coal is removed, using a continuous miner, from areas known as rooms. The rest of the coal is left in place in the form of pillars that hold up the roof and prevent File Size: 2MB.

Wireless Communication in Underground Mines: RFID-based Sensor Networking focuses on the recent advances in wireless communication technologies for underground mines and other hazardous : Ashutosh Patri. Underground mining is one of the few fields where the environment has a significant and direct impact on the communication performance [7].

Establishment of a reliable system in an underground. Communication and industrial technology has developed rapidly in recent years as breakthroughs and improvements have brought forth new applications.

The result is an industrial environment that can run productively, predictably, and with lower risks. In an underground mine this has the potential to bring forth huge improvements in safety and productivity, but a new [ ].

Many underground coal mines use some form of telephone as the primary means of communications between the surface and Communication Methods in Underground Mines.

book underground miners. It is easy to imagine two phones (or transceivers, as introduced in Section ) directly connected by wires to form the physical communications link. Sincethe Bureau of Mines, U.S. Department of the Interior, has sponsored numerous programs aimed at improving methods of underground communication.

As a result of these research and development programs, a wealth of information has been made available to the mining industry. Wireless communication in underground mines 1. Page 1 1. INTRODUCTION Communication is the activity related to the transmission of signals (data) for the sake of information exchange.

In underground mines communication is the crying. Underground Mining Methods presents the latest principles and techniques in use today.

Reflecting the international and diverse nature of the industry, a series of mining case studies is presented covering the commodity range from iron ore to diamonds extracted by operations located in all corners of the world.

Industry experts have contributed 77 chapters/5(5). Wireless Communication in Underground Mines: RFID-based Sensor Networking focuses on the recent advances in wireless communication technologies for underground mines and other hazardous areas.

This comprehensive book provides a unified foundation of wireless communication systems for transmission of data, voice and video, and incorporates Cited by: Through-the-Earth (TTE) signalling is a type of radio signalling used in mines and caves that uses low-frequency waves to penetrate dirt and rock, which are opaque to higher-frequency conventional radio signals.

In mining, these lower-frequency signals can be relayed underground through various antennas, repeater or mesh configurations, but communication is restricted to line of sight to.

The objective of this document is to provide a preliminary understanding of different communication systems and devices used in effective operation of the Mine/Pit along with the other connected units like Power Plant, Washery, Coal handling plant, township etc.

The first demonstration ActiveMine system was installed in August in a km-long operating underground coal mine in Illinois, and has been successfully tested there. Active Control is targeting North American underground mines for testing and sales through next year.

It is not an exact science and in the choice of a method each varying factor has a certain weight, which, in many cases, experience alone can determine.Advanced communication and monitoring systems were developed and demonstrated in three underground mines representing different mining techniques, geographical areas, and material mined.
