COAL MINING CONSULTANT WORKS
SCALING NEW HEIGHTS IN UNDERGROUND COAL BLOCK MINING
In India, Coal companies are now working towards ―clean coal strategies, which aim to reduce the environmental impact. The reduced ash contents of the washed coal increases the thermal efficiency of combustion.
This has a direct impact on reducing emission of pollutants. The coal washing process requires extra water, but it can help us progress towards a pollution free society.
THE VOLSON ADVANTAGE
When coal mining is present beneath a site and some form of structure is built on that site, there is the potential for total and differential settlement of any structures or buildings at that site due to the heavy loadings being constructed over any voids left by coal mining techniques such as room and pillar/board and pillar.
In addition to shallow coal workings, former mine shafts can also present a hazard.
Undertake ground investigations specific to the mineral extraction, mining and quarrying industry.
We work for clients interested in investigating land for mineral extraction by drilling boreholes through both the drift and the solid geology, taking samples and performing subsequent laboratory analysis on the samples for their soil & rock properties and mineral content.
Supply Chain Management
The objective function minimizes the operating costs of every department in the coal supply chain, and an optimal solution can be obtained through the use of Mixed-integer linear programming (MILP ).
‘whole-of-supply-chain’ approach by considering the impacts of the various connected components of a raw material supply chain extending from run-of-mine to the ultimate user.
