The Mount Mulligan mine disaster occurred on 19 September 1921 in Mount Mulligan, North Queensland. A series of explosions in the local coal mine, audible as much as 30 km away, rocked the close knit township. Seventy-five workers were killed by the disaster which is the third worst coal mining accident in Australia in terms of human lives lost. Four of the dead had been at the mouth of the pit at the time of the explosion. Only eleven of the bodies were found. The disaster affected people in cities and towns all over the country. The mine, which was new at the time of the accident, was widely considered safe and had no previous indications of gas leaks. The miners hence worked using open flame lights instead of safety lamps.

Landslide occur at Seaside Malaysia on 1993 year,this video was taken on the spot at that time.That year, They received a call by the owner of a tin mine (the element tin, not tin as in cans...). He said that his mine, which had been running for a few decades, was about to collapse. They rushed to the scene with a video camera and waited for a few hours. Finally, they took this valuable footage. Sea water keep coming in. Although the footage lasted only a few minutes, it is horribly exciting enough.

At approximately 23:35 hours on Sunday 7 August 1994, an explosion occurred in the Moura No 2 underground coal mine. There were twenty-one persons working underground at the time. Ten men from the northern area of the mine escaped within thirty minutes of the explosion but eleven from the southern area failed to return to the surface. Those who failed to return comprised a crew of eight who were working in the 5 south section of the mine undertaking first workings for pillar development, and three others, a beltman and a sealing contractor with an assisting miner who were also deployed in the southern side of the mine. A second and more violent explosion occurred at 12:20 hours on Tuesday 9 August 1994. Rescue and recovery attempts were thereafter abandoned and the mine sealed at the surface.

NOTE: Although this video shows an up-close look at the blasting process, NEVER go near an active surface mine or blast site without Federal training and permission. FYI, the white bags are Emulsified Ammonium Nitrate. The read cap is TNT and the silver rod that is connected to it by the yellow wire is the blasting cap, it's what ignites the shot. The white pebbles that are emptied into the blast holes by the powder trucks are the main explosive- "ANFO" or Ammonium Nitrate, which is a mixture of fertilizer and diesel fuel. Once the holes are filled with explosives, rock fines or "stemming" is pushed back in the holes and packed down to keep the explosives under pressure. After all the holes are loaded and rigged up, it's time for the fireworks! And remember kids, don't try this at home! Want to see more Blasting?

A silent newsreel item from 1957 about mechanised coal mining procedures at the Awaba State Coal Mine, near Newcastle in New South Wales. The item opens with shots of miners going down into, and later leaving, the mine. We see older footage of miners underground using picks and shovels to break up the coal and load it onto carts. A pit pony takes the coal away. The newsreel contrasts this with the modern methods of cutting coal from the coalface using a machine. Two miners bore a hole in the coalface and set explosives. Coal is loaded into a truck using a mechanical loader and taken to storage bins by a locomotive. A conveyor belt takes the coal from the mine to the Crusher Shed where it is transported away by truck. Coal Mining the Modern Way, Newcastle, NSW, 1957. NFSA title: 128513

Centralia, Pennsylvania was nearly entirely evacuated following a coal mine fire, burning beneath the town since 1962. Centralia’s fire started in 1962, when residents turned an old strip mine into a dump, and setting the rubbish alight. The fire spread through an unsealed opening to the underground coal mines, igniting a seam of coal, and the fire has been burning to this day. In 1992, Pennsylvania condemned the town and claimed it under eminent domain in an attempt for force the remaining residents out. Some sued, and were allowed to stay. A section of State Route 61 was abandoned after it began to buckle and crumble from the underground fire. The fire stretches 12km, and burns underneath an area of 15 square kilometres, 300 feet below ground, authorities say the fire could burn for another 250 years. The town now mostly attracts tourists who visit an abandoned highway, where many profanities and obscene pictures are spray painted onto it, over time the highway has earned the nickname Graffiti Highway. Centralia is rumored to have inspired Silent Hill.

The Chasnalla mining disaster was a disaster that happened on 27 December 1975 in a coal mine in Chasnalla near Dhanbad in the Indian state of Jharkhand. An explosion in the mine followed by flooding killed 372 miners. When a roof of coal caved in, 7 million imperial gallons (32,000 m3) of water per minute flooded into the mine. The miners were trapped under a mountain of debris and drowned when the water surged into the mine. The Indian Iron and Steel Company (IISCO), which owned the mine, said it conformed to international standards. The film Kaala Patthar depicts the tragedy. Shaheed Smarak was built in the memory of the victims. Mining operations can occur during a long period of time (from several years to several decades) and in order to keep the mining operations running, water has to be constantly removed from the mine sites when needed. After the mine is closed, which happens when its operational life ends, the maintenance systems stop. Also, the dewatering systems cease to operate. Without any kind of work towards dewatering, the closed mines tend to get flooded with surface and groundwaters in the lower levels and mined spaces, if there is not a drainage adit present. The flooding process of an open-pit or underground mine can take from a several months period to more than a decade. The time it takes for a mine to get flooded depends on factors such as quantity of open space in the mine, availability of infiltration water and on the nature of flooding - it can be uncontrolled, controlled or monitored.

Are civil and military explosives the same? In other words, are we using the same explosives in mining and warfare? Well, yes and no. From the ninth century AD (though the historians are still uncertain about the exact date of its invention) to the mid-1800’s, black powder was the only explosive available. A single type of explosives was therefore used as a propellant for guns and for blasting purpose in any military, mining and civil engineering application. The Industrial Revolution carried new discoveries in explosives and initiation technologies. A specialization principle, therefore, operates between military and civil application of explosives thanks to new products economics, versatility, strength, precision or capability to be stored for long periods of time without significant deterioration. https://www.thebalance.com The following factors shall be considered to determine the blast area: • Geology or material to be blasted, • Blast pattern, • Burden, depth, diameter, and angle of the holes, • Blasting experience of the mine, • Delay systems, powder factor, and pounds per delay, • Type and amount of explosive material, and • Type and amount of stemming. #blasting #mining #industry #coal

Filmed at the Milford Mine Memorial Park. Located in Crow Wing County, Minnesota. "The history reads like a science fiction novel." Was this someone's bad dream? Not by a long shot, it was one of America's worst mining disasters and it happened right here. This is the site that on February 5, 1924, 41 miners lost their lives. On that fateful day a mine shaft collapsed allowing a flood of water and mud to fill an underground network of tunnels. The 200-foot Milford Mine had multiple levels with 1 shaft leading to the surface. Only 7 men made it to the surface alive. http://crowwing.us/294/Milford-Mine-Memorial-Park In the years after the disaster, local legends cropped up about the miners upon their return into the newly re-opened mine... "Their lamps revealed a hideous-looking ghost, the semi-transparent form that many of them recognized as Clinton Harris, the heroic and doomed skip-tender." http://www.prairieghosts.com/mine.html Is the ghost of Clinton Harris still wandering the grounds of the Milford Mine warning us of the danger that lurks below?

Hazelwood Open Cut Coal Mine Fire Smokes Morwell - Morwell Open Cut Mine is Still Burning Will You Survive a Disaster! http://finditwithusonline.com/FamilySurvivalCourse Two weeks after the Hernes Oak fire and the Morwell grass fire and Hazelwood open cut coal mine fire still burns and smokes out the Morwell Township. Residents in some parts of Morwell have had to leave for health reasons. Even a couple of primary schools are not operating, opting to move young students to other schools sites out of the town. Ash from the coal fire drops over most of the town each and every day. In this video I have put together a few different shots to give you an idea on how bad the smoke is. Not to mention that the carbon monoxide levels are high and the smell of the smoke creeps into the house and stays in your clothes. I have a friend with an in ground pool who is forever cleaning it, added costs he did not need being only within a short distance for the mine. Every day we are getting warnings about the air quality, to stay indoors or leave the area. I hope that the fire services and the mine management can get this mine fire out ASAP! Below is a breakdown of what we saw from each photo. This view of the Hazelwood open cut coal mine is right next to the Princess Freeway where the smoke plumes are the thickest. Looking South, East over the Hazelwood Morwell open cut coal mine. View from the Princess Freeway looking South, West over the Hazelwood open cut coal mine. West view along the Freeway of the smoke blowing over the road. South, West view from the freeway over the Hazelwood open cut coal mine. Looking West next to the coal mine, view along the Freeway where the smoke gets thicker. Smoke is so thick here; it interferes with the cameras focus. Looking from Mac Donald's Track Hernes Oak you get a better idea of how much smoke is still coming up out of the Hazelwood Open Cut mine. In the center of town on the south side the smoke causes visibility problems along with ash particles. On low wind or no breeze days the smoke fills the streets of Morwell. On these days it is hard to see more than 50 meters ahead in some parts of the town center. As the smoke rises when the sun is out it shows a yellow glow on the ground and through the smoke. We only go up to the shops for short periods and a few people are now wearing dust masks to help filter out the smoke.

Complete report is available @ http://www.rnrmarketresearch.com/coal-mining-in-australia-to-2020-market-report.html . Australia is one of the world's largest producers and exporter of coal with production estimated at 476.5 million tons (Mt) in 2013, further projected to reach 635.9Mt in 2020, representative of a CAGR of 4.4%. Substantial production over the forecast period is likely due to capacity extensions and new projects. Projects such as the China First coal project, the Alpha coal project, the Wandoan project, and the South Galilee project located in the state of Queensland are some of the largest, with capacities of 40Mt, 30Mt, 22Mt and 13.6Mt respectively. The country's abundant and high-quality coal deposits are widely distributed across all the country's states and the Northern Territory.

Winner - Safety Excellence Sizer Teeth Removal Innovation Glencore Ravensworth Glencore Coal’s Ravensworth open cut mine is located between Singleton and Muswellbrook in the Hunter Valley. The mine has been in operation in one form or another since the 1970s and currently employs 651 people. Crusher teeth require replacement up to three times a year. This maintenance task traditionally involves the use of a 6.4kg copper sledgehammer to strike the used teeth, loosening them so they can be removed. There are 116 teeth on the crusher, each requiring an average eight hits with the hammer by a maintenance technician, which equates to 928 strikes to remove all the teeth. The constant swinging and striking with the sledgehammer poses significant fatigue, ergonomic and soft tissue injury risks to the maintenance technician undertaking the teeth removal. A new, safer method was needed to eliminate the use of the sledgehammer. With no alternative method available on the market, the maintenance team at Ravensworth brainstormed new approaches. A hydraulic flange splitter was considered, however modifications would be required to allow its use on the crusher teeth. Following extensive safety and engineering consultation with regard to modifying the flange splitter, a successful trial was conducted on a full row of crusher teeth.
