Current Status and Future Prospects of Mining Subsidence

The backfilling mining method uses the traditional backfill material, like gypsum, paste-filling, and so on. Bed separation grouting in overburden strata is a new and patented technique which can reduce the surface subsidence to some extent, and is used in some Chinese coalmines.

Overburden is the term used in mining and archaeology to

Overburden is the term used in mining and archaeology to describe material that lies above the area of economic or scientific interest, e.g., the rock, soil and ecosystem that lies above the coal seam. Also known as 'waste'. Overburden is distinct from tailings, the material that remains after economically valuable components have been extracted from the generally finely milled ore.

Experimental study of the movement of backfilling gangues

Gangue movement characteristic under different engineering condition was studied, which showed that the backfilling rate of gangues in the goaf of steeply inclined coal seams is positively correlated to the dip angle of the coal seam and the mining thickness, while being negatively correlated to the grain size of the gangues and the deformation of the roof.

Overburden

Overburden is the natural rock and soil that sits above and around the ore body. It is not subject to any chemical processes at the mine but needs to be removed to allow access to the ore. For every tonne of ore we mine, there are around seven tonnes of overburden which are moved to an area called the Overburden Emplacement Facility (OEF), or waste rock pile.

Overburden from subsequent strips are deposited in the void left from mining the coal and overburden from the previous strip. This is accomplished by drilling holes into the overburden, filling the holes with explosives, and detonating the explosive.
