Abstract
This report describes a computer program devised by the Bureau of Mines to model coal-mining situations where one or more panels encounter oil or gas wells. The program seeks in several hundred trials to evade the wells if possible or to minimize their influence by shifting or skewing the mine plan and/or adjusting the centerline dimensions of the entryways. Upon completion of computations, the program sorts the hundred of models which have been tested, and lists the 10 bests with their associated parameters. It also draws a mine plan of the best configuration showing the entryways and crosscuts along with the "lost" coal remaining in the barrier pillars surrounding the various wells.
