Title

Application of Water Jets in Coal Mining

Abstract

This paper briefly describes the changes in technology which have brought the application of water jets from the slow erosion of soil to the point where in Canada some 3,400 tons per shift are currently mined in a coal mine using high pressure water jet technology. The use of water jets has shown sufficient promise that there are several research programs currently being funded by the U. S. Bureau of Mines and other Federal agencies in the field of excavation technology.
