Excerpt from Explosions in Coal Mines The writers propose to consider the subject of explosions in coal mines from the basis of experience gained by direct investigation.

Six explosions will be particularly described, and reference will be made to others.1/5(1). The first part of the book describes the importance and characteristics of underground gas mine explosions in a historical context with data showing the high number of fatalities from explosion.

This is a reproduction of a book published before This book may have occasional imperfections such as missing or blurred pages. The first part of the book describes the importance and characteristics of underground gas mine explosions in a historical context with data showing the high number of fatalities from explosion incidents, and how risk has been mitigated in the past.

This explosion and numerous other incidents, including fires and gas ignitions at the Willow Creek ( and ) and the Buchanan ( and ) mines, as discussed in detail by the author [4], demonstrate that EGZs can be present in longwall gobs and that they can cause fatal mine explosions and fires.

The safety hazards posed by EGZs can be characterized as follows. Mine fires and explosions traditionally have ranked among the most devastating industrial disasters. At the end of the nineteenth century, fires and explosions in mines resulted in loss of life and property damage on a scale unmatched in other industrial sectors.

A mining accident is an accident that occurs during the process of mining minerals or metals. Thousands of miners die from mining accidents each year, especially from underground coal mining, although accidents also occur in hard rock mining is considered much more hazardous than hard rock mining due to flat-lying rock strata, generally incompetent rock, the presence of methane.

Methane explosions occur in mines when a buildup of methane gas, a byproduct of coal, comes into contact with a heat source, and there is not enough air to dilute the gas to levels below its. Firedamp is flammable gas found in coal mines.

It is the name given to a number of flammable gases, especially methane. It is particularly found in areas where the coal is bituminous. The gas accumulates in pockets in the coal and adjacent strata, and when they are penetrated, the release can trigger explosions.

If exploding methane disperses and ignites the coal dust that has accumulated on the mine ribs and floor, the burning coal dust immeasurably increases the strength of the explosion.
