Mining Publication: The Direct Method of Determining Methane Content of Coalbeds for Ventilation Design

January 1973

Image of publication The Direct Method of Determining Methane Content of Coalbeds for Ventilation Design

The applicability of the "direct method" for determining the methane content of virgin coalbeds was tested. Preliminary results indicate that the direct method, when applied to exploration cores, can be successfully used to estimate coalbed gas content and also approximately predict the total gas emission from a prospective mine located in the coalbed at the exploration site.
