The Virden, Illinois, Coal Mine Massacre on October 12, 1898

 · For miners and loaders (unskilled workers who only shoveled coal and did not do skilled undercutting with a pick), by far the most common cause of injury and death was bad top or a collapsing mine roof. In 1899, for instance, Frank Stroff arrived for work at a Madison County coal mine and worked for only twenty minutes when a gigantic piece of slate fell directly on him, instantly crushing the ...

Mine Machines, Coal Cutting

used in small mines until the 1950s. The earliest coal cutting machines used a spinning disk, or a cutting arm like a chainsaw, to cut a slice from the softest part of the seam, often at the bottom, freeing up the coal to fall naturally, be cut down by hand picks, or brought down by wedges or even explosives. Later cutting machi nes were designed to cut all the seam, so there was no need for ...

In the operation of coal getting, picks are used for undercutting or holing, the coal being afterwards detached by wedges or by blasting. The coal is then ready for filling into the tubs. Thus the complete equipment of the working miner consists of a few picks, a wedge or two, a hammer and a shovel, with a boring machine and the necessary drills and tools for charging and tamping the shot hole ...

 · In others, shale wedges and lowsulfur coals are distributed on either side of the channels (Fig. 12A–B, 12B–C). Because lowsulfur coals have more economic value than highsulfur coals, significant mining has occurred along both the Walshville and Galatia paleochannels, which has meant mines have had to deal with a host of other mining issues related to paleochannels including partings ...

When coal is removed from a seam, the rock strata immediately over the mined area becomes unstable due to the withdrawal of support and is eventually filled with cracks and openings. These openings vary in size, which depend on the nature of the strata. The fragments of rock nearest the opening will fall if they are not supported since there is ...
