MODERN “SMART” MINING FOR A BETTER WORLD
WHY ARE THE GLOBAL INVESTERS IN “SMART” MODERN MINING IN SLOW-MOTION STATUS AND NOT RAPID BOOST INVESTING WITH QUICK RETURN ON INVESTMENT INTO FINAL TECHNICAL READINESS LEVELS AND AVAILABLE OPTIMUM OPPORTUNITIES WITH SAFE SURFACE TO IN-SEAM [SIS] TECHNIQUES?
To improve and commit mining contractors and mining companies to the environmental impact, SIS sets the arguments, justify mining projects and significant reduce count of mineworkers going underground to zero which resulting in a safety risk to zero. Furthermore reduce SIS rehabilitation (reclaimed area) costs to nihill compared to todays mining methods of rock blasting, rock moving, removing overburden and mountain top rocks, reclaim and landscaping area costs.
The win-win SIS-Mining payzone operating profits of the CSE-M500 after cost of capital [OPACC] are high, the only costs underground is the Downhole Mining or Drilling Stem [DMS or DDS] that means cutting heads or bits, conveyor & drain tools, navigation metering mechatronics (robotica). Real autonomous mining (without underground human machine interface [HMI] labor) is then realistic possible for continuous improvement of the SIS techniques with significant value and quick return of investments [ROI].
Facts of todays performance opportunities of inclined directional mining [CSE-M500] is possible with screw-transporters on a penetrated measured depth of 500m, with an short Vertical Radius of Curvatures [VRC] of =< 230m to and follow In-Seam undulates, the mine material production is about 500 to 800 metric ton per hour [TPH], dewatering capacity with progressive pumps [PC] is between 10 l/s to 20 l/s (36 m3/h to 72 m3/h) positive displacement discharge to the surface with a heading (True Vertical Depth) [TVD] of 16 bar to 20 bar (elevation 150m to 190m).

Moreover to create low cost sellable drained mine gasses and coal afterwards and support underground operations by safe drain mine-gasses inflow, supply venting air or purge inert gas and dewater the inflows In-Seams to Surface for continuous-, longwall- and/or plow-mining methods.
Safety statement (you are very welcome to reply):
NO MINEWORKER GOES UNDERGROUND, ALL CONTROLLING ACTUATORS AND MONITORS DURING OPERATIONS ARE REMOTELY ON SURFACE WITH HIGH SAFE MOBILITY AND EVACUATION FREEDOM!
