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 plough height is the working height in the seam being mined (possibly a bit lower if the coal tops can be guaranteed to fall once the coal below is cut These "picks" act in a fashion similar to chisels and break a narrow web of coal off the face (of the order of 300-400mm thick) In most cases there are no moving parts on a coal plough...
