The Impact of Surface and Coal Mining on

Underground mining of coal lowers the surface, breaks and damages the strata lying not only vertically above the extracted area but also the areas surrounding the coal seams over a considerable distance i.e. large land areas lying over un-worked portions of the coal seams get destroyed by mining subsidence.

Surface Coal Mining: Information on Clean Water

19-10-2010  In 2009, West Virginia accounted for about 43 percent of the surface coal mining production in Appalachia. Surface coal mining in the mountainous areas of Appalachia--a process often referred to as mountaintop mining--has generated opposition in recent years because of its impact on landscapes, streams, ecosystems, and communities. In mountaintop mining, before the underlying coal

Mining - Surface mining Britannica

There are several types of surface mining, but the three most common are open-pit mining, strip mining, and quarrying. These differ from one another in the mine geometries created, the techniques used, and the minerals produced. Open-pit mining often (but not always) results in a large hole, or pit, being formed in the process of extracting a mineral. It can also result in a portion of a hilltop being removed. In strip mining

surface coal mining history The Pop History Dig

31-05-2017  Surface mining existed as well, but it wasn’t until the big shovels came on in the 1940s and 1950s that strip mining began to take a larger portion of the state’s annual coal production. Generally it is economic to strip mine when there is a 20:1 ratio of overburden-to-coal seam, meaning, for example that a three-foot coal seam can be surface mined economically when the overburden is up to ...
