    Also, a considerable amount of surface-mined subbituminous coal is lost because of out-of-seam dilution with mineral matter—an annual loss of as much as 10 million tons was reported for the Arch Coal Black Thunder Mine (which produces about 80 million tons per year). 11 The development of dry coal beneficiation processes designed for these

    Longwall mining machine shears coal from a long straight coal face (up to about 700 feet) by working back and forth across the face under a movable, hydraulic-jack roof-support system. The broken coal is transported by conveyor. Longwall machines can mine coal at the rate of 1,000 tons per shift

    A. Abutment - In coal mining, (1) the weight of the rocks above a narrow roadway is transferred to the solid coal along the sides, which act as abutments of the arch of strata spanning the roadway; and (2) the weight of the rocks over a longwall face is transferred to the front abutment, that is, the solid coal ahead of the face and the back abutment, that is, the settled packs behind the face

    In dry mining (below), the salt is mined in large underground caverns, much like one would mine coal or iron ore. Dry mining is only practiced in the Detroit area. Salt worth millions of dollars comes (or at least used to come) from underneath Detroit each year. But not a pinch of it goes on a boiled egg

    Dry Coal Cleaning Applications in India Many coals located 1000 km away from the utility are not cleaned. As a result, 40%-45% ash coals are transported and used in utilities designed for 25%-35% ash coal. For a relatively easy-to-clean India coal, dry cleaning has the ability to reduce the ash from 41% to 30%. 0 5 10 15 20 25 30 1.35 1.35-1
