Surface To Surface & Surface to In-Seam Techniques
To whom safety first and the global environment may concern,
All todays available know-how in the “SMART” technology fields of Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) for coal bed methane drainage and/or dewatering and Horizontal Directional Mining (HDM) for extracting “Steep & Deep” coal and dewatering, also called Highwall Mining (HWM), are on technical ready level status to combine.
This combined techniques lead the way to the new Modern “Smart” Mining Technology the Surface to In-Seam (SIS) and the Surface To Surface (STS) techniques. The big advantage are the commonly usable and reuse of components for both techniques, this reduce significant the costs, a safe operation, no underground labor, good return on investments, good commitment to the environment, project justification, and low impact on rehabilitation and costs.
These techniques are a great asset to those mining industries whom wants to grow into a broad range of modern mining sustainable equipment. Especially the making industries which can deliver heavy duty excavators and/or heavy duty shovels, pick-n-place robots, cutterhead modules, conveying systems and mechatronic autonomous systems. I think and be convinced as that three major enterprise disciplines in the above mentioned making industries are joining in venture the synergies will spin-off in the OEM & AM supplies.
I challenge the mining industries to reply on this significant environmental – modern mining win-win opportunities for the here and now future roadmap to start of multi generational process/product development.
