Title

Ventilation Adjustments for Economic Survival - a Case Study

Abstract

Many older mines were developed into a reserve requiring a large number of workers to maintain and rehabilitate extensive track haulages and/or belt conveyor systems. Often, a large number of fans are required to maintain minimal airflows in areas where poor conditions and leakages prevail. This paper focuses upon problems which beset one such coal mine and the projects undertaken to restore it to potential profitability.
