Title

Face Ventilation During Cross-Cut Development in a Room-And-Pillar Operation

Abstract

The author investigated the airflow pattern in the working face area during a cross-cut development. The study used a 10:1 scale face model and a mock continuous miner. Results showed that keeping up the line curtain is essential in order to avoid recirculation and to control respirable dust and methane in the face area.
