The prevention and control of fire and explosion in mines

2019-12-5  5. While fire and explosion risk assessments have to be carried out both below ground and on the surface, this guidance relates primarily to fire and explosion risks below ground. However, the general principles should be applied to those buildings and equipment on the surface of a mine where a fire or explosion could prejudice safety below ground.

Mine Fires - an overview ScienceDirect Topics

The Coal Mine Health and Safety Act of 1969 mandated the use of fire-resistant conveyor belts in the underground coal mines in the USA (FCMSH, 1969). Also, in Canada, a fire performance standard for conveyor belts used in underground mine operations was developed and adopted as a national Canadian standard (CSA, 1987).

Heat Treatment and Ventilation Optimization in a Deep Mine

In order to address the issue of high temperatures and thermal damages in deep mines, the factors causing downhole heat damage at high temperatures were analyzed, the mine ventilation system was optimized and rebuilt, and a cooling system was established. The proposed cooling system uses mine water as the cooling source, and its features are based on the analysis of traditional cooling systems.
