1/1/1976 - Reports of InvestigationsThis report describes three coal mine ventilation studies by the Bureau of Mines in which sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) was used as a tracer gas.
1/1/1975 - Reports of InvestigationsThis report describes a multipurpose borehole used for both degasification and the production of commercial-quality gas. The multipurpose borehole was drilled into a barrier pillar, and seven horizontal degasification holes and one pressure point hole w...
1/1/1974 - Reports of InvestigationsThe Bureau of Mines has successfully used sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) as a tracer gas to measure mine air flows under conditions where conventional methods have failed. SF6 was employed experimentally to measure accurately recirculation of return into int...
1/1/1974 - Reports of InvestigationsThe Bureau of Mines found sulfur hexafluoride (SF6), released from a lecture bottle, to be an ideal gaseous tracer for studying mine ventilation systems. In a Pennsylvania limestone mine, this technique was useful in evaluating the effectiveness of auxi...
1/1/1973 - Reports of InvestigationsSamples of gas were obtained directly from the coalbed during drilling of horizontal and vertical boreholes in six different formations. The samples were analyzed by gas chromatography.
7/1/1972 - Technical Progress ReportsAn oil well penetrating the Pittsburgh bituminous coalbed in northern West Virginia was plugged and safely mined through 3 months later. Effectiveness of the plugging in preventing reservoir gas from entering the mine through the well hole was verified ...
