Induction shotfiring - using a charge (explosive) to test the face and induce an outburst if one is imminent.
derground coal mining technologies in the West, including:1) capital require- ments, 2) resource recovery, 3) labor, 4) production and productivity, 5) envi-ronmental impacts, and 6) health and safety. A number of technological innovations have been developed recently for under-ground coal mining…
