Ventilation is a key component of operating an underground coal mine and is effectively used for managing gas from the coal seam during mining.
Friction bolts or resin installed rock bolts hold together the safety of underground mines by providing ground support to keep workers safe from roof falls or collapsing ground. Minova has revolutionised traditional bolts with its Unipass technology.
Water control remains a fundamentally important aspect of underground coal mine design and operation worldwide.
Strata consolidation is a crucial aspect to the safety of any underground mining operation, as it provides stability around mine openings.
It is a universally recognised principle of underground coal mine safety that there must be proper ventilation of the mine.
Ventilation controls remain a core risk management area at underground mine sites, especially at a time when pneumoconiosis, or black lung, has re-emerged.
Contact with chemicals, dangerous equipment and unpredictable surfaces all exist in underground mines, but Minova has found a way to reduce human exposure.
