The Illinois-Bureau of Mines Cooperative Mine Subsidence Research Program.
Proc 2nd Conf Ground Control Prob in Illinois Coal Basin Southern Illinois Univ 1985 May; :13-17
This paper highlights past and present subsidence research projects within Illinois. The long-term research program developed and the management scheme devised to ensure efficient use of available research funds and expertise are presented. The program provides techniques for reliable subsidence prediction for both high- extraction mining, which results in immediate, planned subsidence, and room-and-pillar mining, in which no subsidence is anticipated.
