Mining Publication: Methane Emissions from an Advancing Coal Mine Section in the Pittsburgh Coalbed
Original creation date: January 1976
Authors: PW Jeran, DH Lawhead, MC Irani
The methane emissions from an advancing coal mine section were continuously monitored for 120 days. During this time, the section advanced 2,000 feet into virgin Pittsburgh coalbed producing 54,565 tons of coal with a total methane emission of 91 million ft3. Analysis of the data gathered showed that daily methane emissions did not correlate with overburden thickness and daily coal production. A good correlation was found between the daily methane emission and the average length of rib exposed to virgin coal.
