  • Development of integrated roof monitoring system and continuous miner
           working index for improving mine safety

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Banda Srikanth, Hemant Kumar, Srinivasulu Tadisetty
      Pages: 1 - 17
      Abstract: Roof falls are the major catastrophes that occur in the underground coal mines and these falls have a serious impact on workmen in terms of injuries, fatality, and interruptions of production. Hence continuous monitoring of roof convergence is important to predict roof fall. A suitable monitoring system for roof convergence may be installed in underground mines to mitigate problems associated with roof falls. This paper explains the development of a new real-time integrated roof monitoring system based on an ultrasonic distance measurement sensor that has been deployed in the continuous miner workings for the measurement of roof convergence. The roof convergence data is processed to develop the continuous miner working index (CMWI) using statistical techniques and CMWI is very useful for predicting roof convergence in continuous miner workings to improve the safety of operations.
      Keywords: roof fall; roof convergence; ultrasonic-based monitoring system; mine index; continuous miner working index; CMWI

  • How do operators and environment conditions influence the productivity of
           a large mining excavator?

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: S.P. Bettens, P.M. Siegrist, P.R. McAree
      Pages: 18 - 36
      Abstract: This paper considers the sources of variation in the operation of hydraulic mining excavators to shed light on the benefit of tighter control of the excavation process. An observational study is conducted, collecting operational data from a Liebherr R996 mining shovel for a number of equipment operators and environments. The methodology assesses the significance of the operator, material diggability, and bench height on variation in productivity. The paper finds that these three factors are important, with operator variation identified as the dominant factor. There is evidence that skilled operators may marginalise the influence of variation in environment conditions on productivity. The paper's contribution is the quantification of the influence of bench height, digging conditions and the operator on productivity. The significance is that the findings give clarity to the prospective benefit that the automation of excavators would achieve.
      Keywords: mining excavators; hydraulic shovels; mining shovels; productivity study; production rate; operators; human factors; bench height; diggability; excavation environment conditions; sources of variation; automation; precision mining

  • Economic evaluation of materials handling systems in a deep open pit mine

      Pages: 37 - 48
      Abstract: Materials handling constitutes a large portion of the costs of mining operations. Therefore, the system chosen must be cost-effective yet meet the production demands of the mine. In this paper, unit haulage costs, economic risk and sensitivity analyses were conducted to determine the optimal way of handling materials in a deep open pit mine between the traditional truck-shovel haulage system (TSHS) and in-pit crushing and conveying (IPCC) haulage system. The results show that the IPCC haulage system has lower unit costs than the TSHS. The NPV of IPCC system is US$ 15.09 × 10<SUP align="right">9</SUP> while that of the TSHS is US$ 14.64 × 10<SUP align="right">9</SUP>; the DPP of the TSHS and IPCC systems are 2.94 months and 2.13 months, respectively, while the IRR of the TSHS and IPCC systems are 147% and 185% respectively. As the NPVs of both systems are positive, with very short DPPs and high IRRs, the systems are considered to be economically viable. However, the IPCC is considered more economically viable than the TSHS. The NPV of IPCC is less sensitive to variations in the input variables compared to TSHS.

  • An attempt towards the safe utilisation of dangerous sediments deriving
           from mine water: a case study from the Polish part of the Upper Silesian
           Basin

      Pages: 49 - 63
      Abstract: The removal of formation waters from coal mines in the Upper Silesian Basin is the source of sediments. Due to high content of radium, the sediments are classified as naturally occurring radioactive materials (NORMs) and require special treatment according to the current EU and IAEA recommendations. On the other hand, the sediments contain potentially marketable materials and elements when separated. With this in mind, the radiometric, mineralogical, and physicochemical studies were conducted to characterise the sediments from the perspective of possible reprocessing. In the sediments high content of baryte was found, which is an interesting feature, since baryte is included in the list of critical raw materials (CRMs) crucial to the European economy. As a mineral, baryte can precipitate from underground waters or originate from gangues and it frequently contains radium. The research provides valuable information concerning the concentration and the forms of baryte present in the examined sediments. In particular, the concentration of radium as well as the purification process of the remaining sediments with potential applications in construction is discussed.

  • Measurement of the phosphorite ore pulp density based on the image
           recognition method

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Xianhai Li, Han Li, Jiying Zhang, Fan Zhou, Aoao Chen
      Pages: 64 - 75
      Abstract: In this paper, the image recognition method was applied to determine the phosphorite ore pulp density in the field of mineral processing engineering. The self-designed image recognition method-based ore pulp density measurement system was used to measure the density of phosphate ore pulp and conduct the feasibility analysis. The test results indicate that the grey value of phosphate ore pulp with different densities matched well with the pulp value. The test error of the ore pulp density of phosphate ore was 0.72%-1.23%, which could basically satisfy the requirements of industrial application with little discreteness, high accuracy and high precision. This study proves that it was feasible to measure phosphate ore pulp density by using an image recognition method and provides a new idea for ore pulp density measurement and some thoughts for the application of image recognition in mineral processing engineering.
      Keywords: image recognition; phosphorite ore; characteristic colour; exponential approximation curve; ore pulp density

  • Ferronickel slag produced in New Caledonia: characterisation and
           carbonation in seawater

      Authors: Jordan Prévot, Arnaud Serres, Peggy Gunkel-Grillon, René Sabot, Marc Jeannin
      Pages: 76 - 91
      Abstract: Ferronickel slags (FNS) have been studied for a potential use of this industrial waste in seawater through mineral carbonation. Leaching tests have been performed using seawater and EDTA, a strong chelating agent. In both cases, only small concentrations (in the range of µg/g) of released heavy metals are measured by inductively coupled plasma, demonstrating the non-hazardousness of FNS. The carbonation process of FNS was then observed by immersing them in artificial and natural seawater tanks for respectively four and seven months. FNS surface and cross-section samples have then been observed by scanning electron microscopy and chemical analysis. After seven months, a 5 cm thick sturdy conglomerate, composed of FNS stuck by a 25 µm thick calcium carbonate layer, is obtained. A mechanism of this natural carbonation process is proposed in the light of CO<SUB align="right">2 sequestration.
