This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Jeannette McGill is one of the foremost thinkers in mining, having earned her stripes working many years underground and studying at the best universities in the world. She makes the point, in this TEDxJohannesburg 2014 talk, that mining needs to embrace technology if it’s ever going to reach the productivity levels of its past. Dr Jeannette McGill is a mining visionary. Before earning two Master's degrees and a PhD in economic geology and mineral economics from the Colorado School of Mines, USA., McGill was the first woman to work underground in numerous mines in South Africa and only the second to acquire an underground blasting ticket. McGill is recognized as a thought leader with regards technology and innovation and is a senior manager and non-executive director.

But due to advanced features like incremental plowing, horizon control, and overload protection the outstanding performance of Cat® plow systems not only masters geological faults but also gives you an advantage in productivity no other mining system can offer in low or medium seams. Cat plowing technology produces up to 3,500 metric tonnes of coal per hour. It is the most effective production method in low and medium seams below 1.8 meters (71 inches).

How is coal mined? Read Full Story: http://www.spoonfeeding.in/2013/02/how-is-coal-mined-what-is-surface.html Mining is the process of removing coal from the ground. There are two types of mining: underground mining and surface mining. When the coal seam is fewer than 125 feet under the surface, it is mined by surface mining. Coal that is deeper than 125 feet is removed from the ground by underground mining. Underground mining is used when the coal seam lies deep in the earth. In an underground mine only some of the coal is removed. The coal that remains helps support the mine roof. Underground mines look like a system of tunnels. The tunnels are used for traveling throughout the mine, moving coal from place to place and allowing air to circulate in the mine. The coal that is mined is put on conveyor belts. The conveyor belts take the coal to the surface. There are three types of underground mines: slope, drift, and shaft. When the coal seam is close to the surface but too deep to use surface mining, a slope mine can be built. In a slope mine a tunnel slants down from the surface to the coal seam. A drift mine is built when the coal seam lies in the side of a hill or mountain. Drift mines may also be built in a surface mine that has become too deep. There are many drift mines in the eastern United States. The most common type of mine in Illinois is the shaft mine. These mines may be 125 to 1,000 feet deep. A large hole, or shaft, is drilled down into the ground until it reaches the coal seam.

South Africa's TauTona mine, real life alchemy, and Halicephalobus Mephisto. Footage from the 2012 documentary, "Down to the Earth's Core". We have travelled into space and looked deep into the universe's depths, but the world beneath our feet remains unexplored and unseen. Now, that's about to change. For the first time in one epic unbroken shot, we embark on an impossible mission - using spectacular computer generated imagery to smash through three thousand miles of solid rock, and venture from our world into the underworld and on to the core of the Earth itself. It's a journey fraught with danger. One thousand feet down we find ourselves inside one of the planet's most volatile places - the San Andreas Fault. Caught between two huge rock slabs, we watch as stress builds and then releases. It unleashes an earthquake and blasts us on towards rivers of molten rock, explosive volcanoes, tears in the Earth's crust and giant tornadoes of liquid metal. But for every danger, there are wonders beyond imagination. Four hundred feet below the surface, a three hundred million year old fossilized forest, with every leaf and every piece of bark perfectly preserved. At one thousand feet down we enter a cave of giant crystals, glistening in deadly 122 degree heat. More than two miles underground we find buried treasure - gold and gems. Deeper still there are valuable resources - salt, oil, coal and iron. And over one hundred miles down we see the sparkling beauty of diamonds. As we descend we piece together our planet's extraordinary story. We rewind time to discover how prehistoric forests became modern-day fuel. 1700 feet down a layer of rock reveals the extraordinary story of the dinosaurs' cataclysmic death. We watch stalactites form and gold grow before our eyes. The deeper we travel into the underworld the more we understand our world above the surface. A bigger picture takes shape - a cycle of destruction and creation, driven by the core that sustains our dynamic planet and makes the Earth the only planet with life in a seemingly lifeless universe. Until, finally, three thousand miles down, we reach the core. Inside it lie the secrets of life as we know it - the magnetic force field that protects life on Earth from the sun's deadly rays, the ancient heat source that keeps our planet alive. Down to the Earth's Core brings the latest science together with breathtaking computer generated imagery. The result is an unmissable journey into an extraordinary world - full of dangers, wonders and secrets. And it's all down there, beneath our feet, right now waiting to be discovered.

“The Shuttle Car Operator” is 1960s-era color film taking the viewer deep inside a bituminous coal mine to learn more about the coal-mining industry. The camera takes us into cramped spaces as drills make their way through the earth (mark 01:15) and coal hauled away on trolleys called shuttle cars. But the job of a shuttle car operator is one of the most dangerous in the coal mining industry, we’re told at mark 02:10, with one out of every seven transportation injuries involving shuttle car operators. To ensure safety the film discusses the importance of proper car maintenance and proper training of employees. Numerous scenes of shuttle cars in the bowels of the earth follow as the narrator continuously reminds the viewer of the importance of being vigilent and on the lookout for any physical hazards that may impede movement. Starting at mark 04:45 the film reminds of the viewer of those men who “paid with their lives” as crews are shown at work including checking ventilation shafts and removing hazards — though “failure to think about safety” leads to a (staged) fatality at mark 07:55. Other accidents follow, the result of workers too engaged in conversation and oblivious to changes in their underground environment, or those inadequately trained. If an operator is trained and alert, we’re told at mark 15:50, such tragedy can be averted. First introduced in the 1930s, shuttle cars are batch haulage vehicles in the underground mining industry. Shuttle cars are designed to work as a system with continuous miners, efficiently removing cut material from the working face and maximizing the productivity of the entire section. Heavy-duty, high-power drive trains enable our shuttle cars to haul heavy loads in the most difficult conditions. Traction motors power the permanent four-wheel drive system. The cast pivot axles are virtually indestructible, while the heavy-duty conveyors and abrasion-resistant conveyor decking improve reliability and durability. We encourage viewers to add comments and, especially, to provide additional information about our videos by adding a comment! See something interesting?

In the first step of the collaboration, Barrick and Cisco will jointly develop a flagship digital operation at the Cortez mine in Nevada—embedding digital technology in every dimension of the mine to deliver better, faster, and safer mining. Building on the Cortez mine digitization experience, Cisco will support Barrick as it transforms its entire business over time—bringing digital technology to all of its mines as well as to its head office. Digital technology will also improve Barrick’s environmental and safety performance. Predictive data and analytics will improve management of energy, water, and emissions. Real-time data capture will allow the company to be even more transparent with, and accountable to, its local partners—for instance by providing water monitoring information in real time. And the use of digital technology will enhance Barrick’s permitting activities, further increasing transparency to stakeholders. As valuable as these new technologies will be in and of themselves, Barrick sees in them even deeper potential: to accelerate the cultural renewal already underway across the company. As Barrick has returned to its historical commitment to partnership, it has placed renewed emphasis on building and maintaining trust with its many stakeholders. The integration of digital technology into the heart of the business will allow Barrick to be all the more transparent with its partners. Furthermore, by embedding technology more deeply into the company, Barrick means to further reinvigorate its tradition as a bold, entrepreneurial company whose people are unafraid to challenge and surpass conventions.

The issue of 15 laborers stranded in illegal mine of Eastern Jaintia Hills of Meghalaya has not only raised the question of human rights, but has also put question marks on laws and regulations. Despite the ban of Rat Hole Mining by the National Green Tribunal (NGT) in 2014 and the orders of the Supreme Court, coal mining continues uninterrupted. In India on the one hand, due to increasing demand for sand and other minerals, we have to find those options which can create a natural balance, while on the other hand for human life and the regulation of child labor engaged in the mining there is a need to take drastic steps. .

Tight Radius Drilling (TRD) - The future of Coal Seam Gas Drainage CRCMining has developed an advanced Tight Radius Drilling (TRD) system for extracting methane gas from coal seams safely and cost-effectively. This step-change technology has application on both surface and underground mine sites, as well as in the Coal Seam Gas (CSG) industry. Rapid and continuous, flexible and controlled, TRD boasts vastly superior value to surface to in-seam techniques, making coal seams safer to mine and enabling the capture of fugitive carbon emissions. Originally developed for coal mine gas drainage, TRD is a clean alternative to hydraulic fracturing (fraccing), with substantial benefits for the CSG industry.

This short documentary brings the enormously destructive process of longwall mining up from the depths of the vast Pittsburgh Coal Seam and into public view for the first time. Under hundreds of square miles of Pennsylvania's Greene and Washington Counties longwall mining leaves the earth's surface unsupported. Subsidence damage to structures - like homes, farms, and roads - is inevitable. Longwall mining also damages entire watersheds, depriving the land and its occupants of springs, streams, ponds and wells, creating an environmental disaster of local and national importance. This 15-minute documentary portrays the experience of two families as they struggle to cope with extensive longwall subsidence damage to their historic homesteads. Written and directed by Emmy Award winning journalist Terri Taylor. For more information or to request screening copies, please contact: Terri Taylor, 412-242-7995 or [email protected]
