Title: Fourth Annual International Mining Health


1
Fourth Annual International Mining Health
Safety Symposium
  • MSHA Communications and Tracking Update
  • Approval and Certification Center
  • April 8, 2011

2
Communication and Tracking (CT) Installation
Update
  • 192 Complete Installations representing 36 of
    mines
  • Approved ERPs specify
  • Wireless Node-Based Communications 22
  • Wired Node-Based Communications 29
  • Leaky Feeder Communications 50

3
MSHA Communication and Tracking Activity
  • Since January 2006, ACC has issued
  • 186 new or revised approvals for communication
    and/or tracking systems.
  • 67 new
  • 119 revised
  • Currently evaluating additional 53 applications,
    including
  • Wireless mesh
  • Through-the-earth technology

4
Other Recent Communication and Tracking Activity
  • Working section installations being deployed
    successfully
  • Wired system manufacturers pursuing wireless
    options
  • Leaky feeder manufacturers are exploring adding
    wireless access points (nodes)
  • Wired mesh manufacturers are investigating
    wireless options
  • Text messaging only systems are pursuing voice
    options

5
Other Recent Communication and Tracking Activity
  • Some CT manufacturers are adding capabilities
    for
  • Gas monitoring
  • Continuous dust monitoring
  • Collision warning

6
MINER Act Refresher
  • Post accident communication must be provided
    between underground and surface personnel via a
    wireless two-way medium.
  • An electronic tracking system must be provided
    that permits surface personnel to determine the
    location of any persons trapped underground.
  • ERPs shall be reviewed periodically but at least
    every 6 months to consider
  • All comments submitted by miners or their
    representatives
  • Intervening advancements in science and
    technology that could be implemented to enhance
    miners ability to evacuate or otherwise survive
    an emergency

7
MSHA 6 Month ERP Reviews
  • Ensure system will be completely installed by
    June 15, 2011
  • Review to ensure adequate survivability
  • Check recent technology advancements mine
    operator should seek to constantly improve system
    capabilities

8
Fourth Annual International Mining Health
Safety Symposium
  • MSHA Proximity Detection Update
  • Approval and Certification Center
  • April 8, 2011

9
Fatal Accident Data Study 1984-2010
  • Study identified crushing fatalities that could
    have been prevented by proximity detection
  • 70 total in CMSH
  • 30 continuous miners
  • 25 shuttle cars or coal haulers
  • 10 scoops
  • 5 mobile bridge conveyors
  • 5 total in MNM

10
Remote Control Continuous Mining Machine
Fatalities
  • 34 since 1984
  • 29 victims had possession of remote control
  • 6 maintenance

11
MSHA Approved Proximity Detection Systems
  • Nautilus International Coal Buddy System
  • Strata Safety Products HazardAvert System
  • Joy/Matrix Design Group M3-1000 System

12
Nautilus International Coal Buddy System
  • Three current installations
  • ICG Sentinel
  • Massey (Independence Coal) Cook and Randolph
    Mines
  • One system ordered for Patriots Federal 2 Mine
  • Massey Energy ordered 30 systems

13
Strata Safety Products HazardAvert System
  • Experience with installations at
  • Consol Jones Fork Mine
  • ICG Viper Mine
  • Peabody Black Beauty Mine
  • Consol Buchanan Mine
  • Current focus in South Africa where there are
    currently eight (8) complete u/g coal mine
    sections using HazardAvert
  • Currently testing system at Consol Buchanan Mine
    and Peabody Willow Lake Mine

14
Joy/Matrix Design Group Miner Monitor M3-1000
  • MSHA approved in February 2009
  • 19 total systems installed. Most are at Alliance
    Coal Company Mines, including
  • Riverview
  • Pattiki
  • Dottiki
  • Mettiki
  • Tunnel Ridge
  • Also at James River Coals Leeco 68 Mine

15
Joy/Matrix Design Group Miner Monitor M3-1000
  • Zone Types
  • Warning Zone, further away from the machine,
    provides operator feedback through a series of
    yellow LED lights mounted on each receiver
  • Shutdown Zone, closer to the machine, provides
    operator feedback through red LED lights and
    disables certain functions such as tram and
    conveyor swing
  • Operational Modes
  • Tram Mode defines a larger, full machine zone
    accounting for increased machine speed
  • Cutting Mode defines a smaller, partial machine
    zone near the bumper accounting for operator
    positioning away from haulage interaction

16
MSHA, NIOSH, WV MSTTF Visit to South Africa
  • Observed
  • Strata Safety Products Tramguard at Sasol
    Twistdraii Underground Coal Mine
  • SafeMine GPS System at Anglo New Vaal Colliery
    Surface Coal Mine
  • Becker CAS System at Xstrata Kroondal Underground
    Chromium Mine
  • Booyco CWS at Anglo Greenside Colliery
    underground coal mine

17
