Productivity Improvement in Underground Coal Mines - A ...

01/01/2013  Moreover, while opencast mining has seen major advancements, underground mining has remained sluggish for the past five years with an output per manshift (OMS) hovering in the range of 0.70–0.77 tonne. Such a low OMS compared to other countries indicates that the norms of equipment productivity adapted and attained in India are themselves low (Kulshreshtha, Parikh 2001).

Here are the Types of Underground Mining and Their

Depending on how these ores are extracted, mining methods can be categorized as ‘surface’ or ‘underground’ types. In surface mining, the rock barrier on top of the deposit is removed to access the ore. However, sometimes, such deposits occur too far below to access them from the surface. In such cases, they are extracted by leaving the overlying rock intact, and accessing
