THE INTRODUCTION OF ROOF BOLTING TO U.S.

Without a doubt, roof bolting has been the single most important technological development in the field of ground control in the entire history of mining. Bolting was substituted for timbering in U.S. underground coal mines in the late 1940’s, and it was “accepted by the mining industry with greater rapidity than any other mining

Safety of roof-bolting operations in underground coal mines

Nov 01, 1983 Roof bolting is generally considered as being the most dangerous job in underground coal mines in the United States. In addition to the ever present danger of roof falls, the roof-bolting machines have many design features that seem to further increase the hazards of the job.

The introduction of roof bolting after 1940 resulted in the more regular mine plan and higher recovery in the Monterey Mine than in the older parts of the mines near Breese. Some of the un-mined areas may have been left because of poor coal quality. Rolls were reported in the Monterey Mine, as well as a clay dike and partings in the seam.

CDC Mining Roof Instability: What Roof Falls Can Tell

Roof bolting in coal mines began on a modest scale in the early 1950s. Since then, the design of bolts, grout systems, accessories and installation techniques has improved significantly. Currently, roof bolting is the primary means of supporting mine roof in room-and-pillar operations in the bituminous coal sector.

USING THE COAL MINE ROOF RATING (CMRR) TO ASSESS

The Coal Mine Roof Rating (CMRR) has been developed to quantify the defects in the rock mass and compile a strength value which can be used for engineering design. The CMRR has been applied to a number of ground stability problems, including chain pillar design, roof bolt selection, hazard assessment, intersection design, and numerical modeling.
