Selective Interburden Handling Techniques. Volume II--appendices.
NTIS: PB/81-221913 :321 pages
A summary of the major findings of the literature survey for interburden handling concepts are presented. Literature pertaining to mine practices in multiseam strip mining operations were reviewed. The survey covered two coal regions: the western coal region with emphasis on the northern great plains coal province and the interior central coal region with emphasis on the tri-state area of Illinois, Indiana, and west Kentucky. Previous works on multiseam mining and selective handling techniques were identified and evaluated. The effects of the current proposed state and federal surface mining laws on alternative interburden handling techniques employed in the western and central coal regions are discussed.
