Mining in Pennsylvania was a well regulated industry after the Avondale mine disaster in 1869.Details of mining accidents, fatal and nonfatal, can be found in the volumes of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Mine Inspector Reports.Publications began in 1870 and continues today; however, the reports are only genealogically useful until the 1920’s.
Design of Surface Mine Haulage Roads – A Manual By Walter W. Kaufman and James C. Ault ABSTRACT This Bureau of Mines manual for design of surface mine haulage roads covers such aspects of haulage road design as road alignment (both vertical and horizontal), construction materials, cross slope, and drainage provisions.

Truck haulage is the most common form of materials transport in open pit mines. Trucks can be used to haul ore and waste out of the mine or they can be used to haul to an in-pit crusher where ore and/or waste can be crushed and then conveyed out of the mine.
Job duties in the mining industry usually depend on the particular segment: oil and gas, metal ores, nonmetallic mineral mining (quarrying) and mining support. For example, coal miners can work in deep coal mines or on surface mining areas, where they are responsible for extracting coal, bringing it to the surface and transporting it to the buyers.
Mine haul road maintenance management systems by R.J. Thompson* and A.T. Visser† Synopsis In surface mining operations, ultra-heavy trucks operate on haul road networks which are typically from 10–40 km in length. These road networks are often not optimally designed and maintained and as a result, identifying and remediating road functional ...

Stopping distance is the minimum distance needed by a vehicle to stop, when travelling at a design speed, to avoid an oncoming hazard. The distance takes into account driver reaction time, the retarding action time delay for any vehicle and the time taken for the vehicle to come a complete stop.
in deep mines. The advantages of drift transport systems over shaft systems are as follows: 1. The lowering and raising of all materials and equipment without dismantling and reassembly. 2. The compatible use of drift for persons a nd materials transport and ore/coal haulage by conveyor without any operational interference of one with the other ...
COAL HAULAGE General. It has been noted previously that, with the exception of a few special cases using hydraulic transport, coal haulage outside the face area in modern mines is almost exclusively by conveyor belt, combined in some mines with bulk winding.
mental impacts can occur at the mine, where the coal is being transferred, trans ported or loaded. lndirect environmental impacts from coal transportation largely result from the combustion of fuel for the transportation itself. This chap ter discusses the different transport technologies, trends in coal transportation,
The term “rope haulage” is used here to mean the use of hoists for pulling cars on grades or flat slopes where the grade is too steep for locomotives or the method in general use in the mine. Conveyor systems have come into common use in coal mines during the past decade.

This Recognised Standard is designed to assist mine management and workers at coal mines in meeting their obligations by stating ways to achieve an acceptable level of risk to persons arising out of coal mining operations that shall be included in a coal mine safety and health management system for the design and construction of mine roads.
Conceptual. Truck haulage and haulage related costs can account for up to 50% of the total operating costs incurred by an open-cut mine. As such, under-performance or poor planning can impact strongly on the mine’s productivity and the bottom line.
The first shaft at Bickershaw was sunk in 1830 by Turner and Ackers. A tramway connected the pit to the canal which was used for transporting coal until August 1972 when road transport took over local distribution. In 1872 work started on two new shafts; (489 yards (447 m)) and No.2 (492 yards (450 m)) at Plank Lane beside the canal.
MINE HAUL ROAD DESIGN AND MANAGEMENT BEST PRACTICES FOR SAFE AND COST-EFFICIENT TRUCK HAULAGE Roger Thompson, Curtin University of Technology, WASM, Kalgoorlie WA, Australia Abstract Well designed and maintained haul roads are the key to minimizing truck haulage on-road hazards and costs, as well as increasing productivity. However, practically

The haulage system employed to convey coal from the face to the outside, dates back to 300 B. C., when slaves carried the mineral from the face to the consumer. The British discovered coal on their island about 800 A. D. and they were the first people to make practical use of coal and make coal mining a successful operation. The Britons carried cargoes of coal in their trading expeditions long ...
