Abstract
Operational data was collected from selected surface coal mining systems in the United States, and the potential production and the economic capacity of the systems were assessed. The study included four mines using different mining techniques and different equipment. One mine was selected from each of the major coalfields: midwestern, eastern, northwestern, and southwestern. Following the documentation of each operation and development of a comprehensive production and cost data base, an analysis was conducted to identify production inefficiencies and to develop short-term and long-term improvements that would increase the productivity of the mines or reduce costs.
