  • Nice summary Satyanayana,
    I started this innovative technology and re-introduced the highwall miners from 1996 of.
    This directional Highwall Mining technique belongs to the next booming Modern Mining 'Surface to In-Seam [SIS] Techniques' as similarity with Horizontal Directional Drilling [HDD]. Two techniques are in development: SIS-Mining and SIS-Drilling, major technology behind these ideas are Directional Drilling vs. Directional Mining.
    Keep in touch;

Highwall mining

  1. 1. PRESENTATION ON Highwall Mining I. Satyanarayana, M.Tech,MBA,MCADy. Manager, Project Planning, SCCL, isnindian@gmail.com, visit at www.slideshare.com/isnindian
  2. 2. High Wall Mining Technology• Highwall Mining is a remotely controlled mining method, which extracts coal from the face of a coal seam under a highwall in a surface mine, which has reached the final highwall position due to uneconomic stripping ratios Or due to local constraints which limit further surface mining.• The coal left in the High wall can be extracted by this technology which otherwise would be lost for ever• SCCL is the 1st company implementing this technology in India• The following mines are identified for extraction of coal from the Highwall by using this technology • RG OC II Extension (already extracted) • RG OC I Expansion • Medapalli OC Expansion • Koyagudem OC II
  3. 3. Highwall Mining Technology:• This method relies upon the self supporting capacity of the strata above the series of parallel entries driven mechanically to a considerable depth without artificial roof support and ventilation in the seam horizon.• This technology provides an economical way to extract coal reserves locked up in the highwall.• The extent of an opencast project is limited by the financial viability, though coal seam continues to exist beyond the quarry limits.• Non-replenishable coal is getting lost forever within the highwalls of the opencast projects.• This technology is being practiced in USA, Australia and Indonesia• Limiting gradient – 1 in 3.5 and maximum penetrating depth (in level gradient) is around 500 m
