Mining Publication: Methane and Dust Control by Water Infusion: Pittsburgh Coalbed (Fairview, W. Va.)

Original creation date: January 1972

Image of publication Methane and Dust Control by Water Infusion: Pittsburgh Coalbed (Fairview, W. Va.)

The effect of water infusion on the flow of methane and on the production of dust was investigated at an active face in the Pittsburgh coalbed. The average total flow of methane at the face decreased by approximately 79 percent, whereas the flow from the ribs increased about 24 percent after infusion. On the day after infusion, dust concentrations appear to have been reduced; however, the presence of large quantities of rock dust obscured the results on the following days.
