Dierks, H. ; Miller, P. Author: Ash, S. Dierks, H. ; Miller, P. The committee realizes that mine disaster prevention is a complex area requiring expertise in several fields such as (1) mining engineering; (2) fires and fire control engineering; (3) methane, coal, pyrite, and other explosives—their initiation, progression, and control; and (4) the impact of all of these on normal mine operations, disaster.

Flood Prevention and Control People rely on many different measures to control and prevent floods. Most of these measures have both advantages and disadvantages. One way that people can lessen the impact of flooding is to restore natural flood protections that human activity has altered.

In areas where vegetation has been removed, replanting. A flooded mine is one of the direct results of a mine's closure procedure. When a mine stops to operate, its maintenance systems also stop, in which the dewatering systems are included.

Without these systems the mine will get flooded by water that naturally sits in rock formations and in the ground. Print book: National government publication: English: Rating: (not yet rated) 0 with reviews - Be the first.
