1/1/1984 - Information CircularsA tabulation of methane emissions during 1980 for all United States coal mines with emissions greater than 0.1 MMcfd. The report also compares records of 1975 and 1980 and describes relationships between emissions in 1980 and the Bureau's coalbed gas co...
1/1/1984 - Reports of InvestigationsSince 1970, abnormally high methane emissions have been observed in eastern sections of the Federal No. 2 Mine operating in the Pittsburgh coalbed in northern West Virginia. The nature and volume of these emissions indicate a source other than the coalb...
Investigation of Methane Emissions From an Advancing Face in the Belle Isle Domal Salt Mine, Louisiana1/1/1982 - Reports of InvestigationsThe Bureau of Mines measured methane emission rates from an advancing salt face ranging from 15 to 56 ft3/ton (0.5 to 1.8 M3/t). Small room size, use of a continuous miner, and a well-defined ventilation system made possible air velocity and methane con...
1/1/1982 - Information CircularsThe objective of this paper is to provide information on specific geologic factors that should be considered prior to, during, and after the drilling of coalbed gas drainage boreholes. Many of the commonsense considerations that have been learned throug...
1/1/1981 - Reports of InvestigationsThe Bureau of Mines investigated coal storage silos to determine how gassy coal must be for methane accumulations in a silo to become hazardous and where such accumulations are likely to occur. Methane concentrations were measured in the open space abov...
1/1/1980 - Reports of InvestigationsThe use of vertical surface degasification boreholes with bleeder systems and the use of a timbered bleeder system to degasify gob areas were studied by the Bureau of Mines. This report describes three gob degasification studies conducted in the Pittsbu...
Geology, Mining, and Methane Content of the Freeport and Kittanning Coalbeds in Indiana and Surrounding Counties, Pa.1/1/1979 - Reports of InvestigationsThis study covers 25 underground mines that were active in the Upper and Lower Freeport and Lower Kittanning coalbeds in 1976. The coal ranges from low to medium volatile in rank.
1/1/1978 - Reports of InvestigationsThe methane gas emitted from coal samples collected from the conveyor belts dumping into silos was measured. Approximately 50 pct of the total gas desorbed into a sealed can within 1 week was released during the first 24 hours. No simple correlation bet...
1/1/1977 - Reports of InvestigationsThe Bureau of Mines made laboratory absorption measurements on oil shale samples, which showed that the amount of methane absorbed is proportional to pressure and oil yield, and can be much larger than would be predicted based solely on porosity. Oil sh...
Methane Emission from U.S. Coal Mines in 1975, A Survey : A Supplement to Information Circulars 8558 and 86591/1/1977 - Information CircularsThis Bureau of Mines report tabulates methane emissions from U.S. Bituminous coal mines with daily emission rates of at least 100,000 cfd according to states, counties, and coalbeds. Most of the methane emitted is from mines in the Appalachian States. T...
