was via underground mining methods.advancements in technology primarily hydraulics and explosives and expansion of mining activities in the west particularly in the prb have shifted mining trends from underground to surface production over the past 40 years. year ug production mm percentage underground surface production mm 1930
tunnels and underground excavations horizontal underground passageway produced by excavation or occasionally by natures action in dissolving a soluble rock. tunnels have many uses: for mining ores for transportationincluding road vehicles trains subways and canalsand for
the selection of underground mining methods is primarily based on the geological/spatial setting of the deposit. candidate methods can therefore be chosen and ranked based on estimated operational/capital costs production rates availability of labors and materials/equipments and
identify the priority of consideration between the problems of mining method selection and determining transition depth from openpit to underground mining. 2. procedure description generally many deposits can be mined entirely with openpit method; others must beworked underground from the very beginning.besides these two kinds of deposits
mining publication: rock dusting considerations in underground coal mines.the increased use of meshing to control roof and rib spall provides elevated surfaces for coal dust to collect which significantly increases the potential for dust explosion propagation if not adequately inerted. in addition to holding more coal dust

mineral and oil deposits come in many different forms and contain many different types of minerals. a full consideration of the geological origin of oil deposits is well beyond the scope of the current course. in this topic well only consider those mineral deposits which are relevant to our discussion of underground mining.
no two mines are alike though. technology applications and basic decisions about design and mining method rest on considerations like the type of ore being mined composition of surrounding rock shape and orientation of the ore deposit geologic features underground and simple economics [source: united mine workers of america].
