8/20/2013 - PC softwareA software program for designing web and barrier pillars for Highwall Mining.
2/1/2005 - Conference papersHighwall stability remains a major concern during highwall mining. Geologic structure (hillseams) and pillar stability are the two major factors affecting highwall stability.
8/1/2004 - Conference papersThis article discusses highwall stability, reasons for early pull out of highwall miner holes, and geotechnical engineering and planning factors, as well as operating practices to improve highwall stability and minimize the risk of a trapped miner.
8/1/2000 - Conference papersTo determine causes of slope failure and highwall/spoilbank failure, this study reviews accident statistics, surface mining laws, the relevant literature, and observations from mine visits. The study emphasizes surface mines in WV, OH, and PA.
