Abstract
The purpose of this study was to formulate practical guidelines for active underground mining in close proximity to water bodies. This was accomplished through systematic completion of three phases of study: (I) collection and documentation of data, (II) application of existing guidelines to case histories of previous inundations, and (III) development of recommended guidelines for underground coal mining near bodies of water. Phase III was directed at the development of viable guidelines to promote the greatest possible coal extraction while precluding accidental mine inundation. Two levels of guidelines are presented, level I guidelines require little or no subsurface exploration on the part of the mine operator, while level II guidelines recommend various testing and investigative procedures to permit the greatest possible mineral extraction. This report presents findings and conclusions of the study.
