Ventilation System Design for a Thin-Seam Mining Panel

The extraction of coal from thin-seams is an important component of the future of coal mining in the commonwealth of Vrr­ ginia. For thin-seam mining systems to be successful they must be able to provide production comparable to the current pro­ duction methods in thicker seams. This necessitates the extensive use of remote mining technology.
