Abstract
This chapter gives guidelines for preventing methane gas explosions at continuous miner sections in coal mines, both at continuous miners and at roof bolters. The need to control peak methane emissions is particularly stressed. Emphasis is also placed on ventilation principles, monitoring for gas, and reducing frictional ignitions.
