Coal Mining 101 – The Coal Seam

May 06, 2013 · The typical method of assessing surface mining economics for a coal seam is a calculation of overburden (native rock and soil above a coal seam) moved per clean ton of coal produced, commonly referred to as "mining ratio". The higher the mining ratio (or more overburden moved per clean coal ton), the higher the cost of producing coal.

The borehole hydraulic coal mining system accesses the coal seam through a hole drilled in the overburden. The mining device is lowered through the hole into the coal seam where it fragments the coal with highpressure water jets. The fragmented coal is pumped to the surface as a slurry by a jet pump loed in the center of the mining device.
