Abstract
A test conducted in the Lower Kittanning coalbed that indicates that up to 71 pct of the methane produced by a mining operation can be captured by a properly designed cross-measure system is described. The number, depth, spacing, and angle of boreholes is detailed, and methane flow at varying points during mining is discussed.
