Clinically important FEV1 declines among coal miners: an exploration of previously unrecognised determinants. (1/255)OBJECTIVES: The relation between occupational exposure to dust and loss of ventilatory lung function is now well established. However, many exposures during work and other activities might also have important roles in determining clinically important losses of lung function. In this study, we attempted to explore additional plausible determinants of exposures and other potential risk factors for clinically important decline in forced expiratory volume in 1 second (FEV1) during work in dusty trades. METHODS: The study was performed in 264 underground coal miners whose lung function had been followed up for an average of 11 years. With an extensive follow up questionnaire, miners were asked about their occupational and non-occupational exposures, smoking, personal and family medical history, and living conditions during childhood. RESULTS: Several variables of the mine environment (as well as previously recognised effects of mining work and region) were found to be associated with excess decline in FEV1, including work in roof bolting, exposure to explosive blasting, and to control dust spraying water that had been stored in holding tanks. Use of respiratory protection seemed to reduce the risk of decline in FEV1. Other factors that were found to be associated with declines in pulmonary function included smoking, body mass, weight gain, childhood pneumonia, and childhood exposure in the home to passive tobacco smoke and possibly smoke due to wood and coal fuels. Miners with excessive decline in FEV1 were less likely to be working in mining jobs at follow up. CONCLUSIONS: These findings suggest the existence of additional risk factors for decline in lung function in dusty trades, and may be useful in developing additional approaches to the prevention of chronic respiratory disease.

Living near opencast coal mining sites and children's respiratory health. (2/255)OBJECTIVES: To answer the question whether living near opencast coal mining sites affects acute and chronic respiratory health. METHODS: All 4860 children aged 1-11 from five socioeconomically matched pairs of communities close to active opencast sites and control sites away from them were selected. Exposure was assessed by concentrations of particulate matter with aerodynamic diameter < 10 microns (PM10), residential proximity to active opencast sites, and particle composition. PM10 was monitored and sampled for 6 weeks in four pairs, and for 24 weeks in one pair. A postal questionnaire collected data on health and lifestyle. Daily health information was collected by a symptom diary (concurrently with PM10 monitoring) and general practitioner (GP) records were abstracted (concurrently with PM10 monitoring and 52 weeks before the study). Outcomes were the cumulative and period prevalence (2 and 12 months) of wheeze, asthma, bronchitis, and other respiratory symptoms, and the prevalence and incidence of daily symptoms and GP consultations. RESULTS: Patterns of the daily variation of PM10 were similar in opencast and control communities, but PM10 was higher in opencast areas (mean ratio 1.14, 95% confidence interval (95% CI) 1.13 to 1.16, geometric mean 17.0 micrograms/m3 v 14.9 micrograms/m3). Opencast sites were a measurable contributor to PM10 in adjacent areas. Little evidence was found for associations between living near an opencast site and an increased prevalence of respiratory illnesses, asthma severity, or daily diary symptoms, but children in opencast communities 1-4 had significantly more respiratory consultations (1.5 v 1.1 per person-year) than children in control communities for the 6 week study periods. Associations between daily PM10 concentrations and acute health events were similar in opencast and control communities. CONCLUSIONS: Children in opencast communities were exposed to a small but significant amount of additional PM10 to which the opencast sites were a measurable contributor. Past and present respiratory health of children was similar, but GP consultations for respiratory conditions were higher in opencast communities during the core study period. (+info)
Characterization of dust exposure for the study of chronic occupational lung disease: a comparison of different exposure assessment strategies. (3/255)Various exposure assessment strategies were compared in the study of the relation between dust exposure and 11-year lung function change in 1,172 miners with 36,824 concurrently measured personal dust samples available from the 1969-1981 US National Study of Coal Workers' Pneumoconiosis. A miner's average exposure was assessed by calculating average exposures based on dust samples taken from each individual and by using different job exposure matrices (JEMs) with different underlying exposure categorizations, based on occupational categories, job title, mine, and time, to obtain average exposure estimates. For each grouping procedure, intragroup and intergroup variances and the pooled standard error of the mean were calculated to assess relative efficiency. The results show that considerable variation in slopes of exposure-response relations was found using different exposure assessment strategies. Standard errors of the slopes of the exposure-response relations with exposure on an individual basis compared with JEMs. Exposure assessment on an individual basis was extremely sensitive to the number of exposure measurements per individual. The study demonstrates the advantages and disadvantages of different exposure assessment strategies and shows the need for explicit publication of exposure assessment strategies for epidemiologic studies. Careful assessment of the influence of misclassification error in the exposure assessment on exposure-response modeling is warranted. (+info)
Rheumatoid arthritis in workers exposed to silica in the pottery industry. (4/255)OBJECTIVE: To investigate the relation between rheumatoid arthritis and occupational exposure to silica in pottery and related industries. METHODS: Medical records of 8325 men and women born 1916-45 and employed in pottery, refractory material (aluminosilicate or silica), and sandstone industries were examined to identify cases of rheumatoid arthritis. Medical and employment histories were extracted for cases and matched referents. Indices of duration, cumulative exposure, and mean silica concentration were compiled. Conditional logistic regression was used to investigate the relation between rheumatoid arthritis and indices of exposure, having allowed for potential confounders of smoking, employment in the coal mining industry, and number of pregnancies. RESULTS: 58 Cases of rheumatoid arthritis (43 men, 15 women) were identified. Cases had significantly shorter duration of exposure than referents. There was no significant difference between cases and referents in mean silica concentration. Men who had worked in the coal mining industry were particularly at risk (odds ratio 5.36, 95% confidence interval 1.92 to 15.03). CONCLUSION: There was no evidence of increased risk of developing rheumatoid arthritis after occupational exposure to silica at mean exposures within the current United Kingdom exposure limits.

Silicosis screening in surface coal miners--Pennsylvania, 1996-1997. (5/255)Silicosis is an occupational respiratory disease caused by inhaling respirable crystalline silica dust. Silicosis is irreversible, often progressive (even after exposure has ceased), and potentially fatal. Exposure to silica dust occurs in many occupations, including mining (1). During 1996-1997, surface coal miners at eight sites in Pennsylvania were screened to estimate the prevalence of silicosis, to identify risk factors for silicosis, and to refer miners with a possible diagnosis of silicosis or other conditions for medical evaluation and treatment. This report summarizes the results of the screening, which indicated that an increased prevalence of and risk for silicosis is associated with miners' age and years of drilling experience, and provides recommendations for preventing silicosis among miners.

The composition of massive lesions in coal miners. (7/255)The nature of the material forming the massive lesions in the lungs of coal workers has never been demonstrated. The concept that it was in fact massive fibrosis, implying that it consisted of collagen impregnated with coal dust, has been challenged only during the last ten years. It was agreed that the best chance of obtaining more definite information was from a combined study of the biochemical, pathological, ultrastructural, and immunological features of a number of lungs containing these lesions. Six cases which were found to contain suitable material were studied. The preliminary results obtained suggest that collagen is present in the capsule of these lesions but that at the centre it is replaced by another insoluble protein or proteins which is probably stabilized by some form of cross-linking. This protein complex accounts for one-third of the weight of the lesions, the remaining two-thirds consisting of approximately equal amounts of mineral dusts and calcium phosphate. Serum proteins were also observed but their association with the lesions has yet to be determined. (+info)
Pseudomonas frederiksbergensis sp. nov., isolated from soil at a coal gasification site. (8/255)Phenotypic and genotypic characterization indicated that a group of 29 closely related phenanthrene-degrading bacteria from a coal gasification site in Frederiksberg, Copenhagen, Denmark, belonged to the genus Pseudomonas. The strains were isolated at two sampling occasions 2 years apart. The isolates were phenotypically different from any known species of the genus Pseudomonas and were therefore subject to further identification. Colonies were smooth and pale yellowish and did not produce pigments fluorescent in UV light when grown on King's B agar. Cells were rod-shaped, approximately 0.5-0.8 x 1.5-3.0 microm, and grew at 4 and 30 degrees C, but not 37 degrees C. The bacteria were oxidase- and catalase-positive, accumulated poly-beta-hydroxybutyrate and denitrified, but did not utilize D-xylose. The mean G+C content was 59.6 mol%. Phenotypic data and 16S rDNA sequence data information for Pseudomonas amygdali and Pseudomonas corrugata, and 16S rDNA sequence data for Pseudomonas chlororaphis and Pseudomonas syringae showed close relationships to these strains. However, DNA-DNA hybridization data showed that the isolates belong to a new species, for which the name Pseudomonas frederiksbergensis sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is JAJ28T (DSM 13022T).

Study is 1 of first to see outsized health effects on nearby residents. Birth defects are significantly more common in areas of mountaintop coal mining and are on the rise as the practice becomes more common, according to a study by researchers at Washington State University and West Virginia University.. The researchers, led by Melissa Ahern, health economist and associate professor in WSUs College of Pharmacy, found 235 birth defects per 10,000 births where mountaintop mining is most common in four central Appalachian states. Thats nearly twice the rate of 144 defects per 10,000 in non-mining areas.. Previous studies have found low birth weights and increased levels of adult disease and death in coal mining areas. This study offers one of the first indications that health problems are disproportionately concentrated specifically in mountaintop mining areas.. The findings "contribute to the growing evidence that mountaintop mining is done at substantial expense to the environment, to local ...

The late West Virginia activist on fighting to save her home from mountaintop removal coal mining.. Yet, while EPA administrator Lisa Jackson has openly admitted the unacceptable health consequences of mountaintop removal, the Obama administration has chosen to follow an admittedly failed compliance policy and 40-year record of criminally neglectful regulatory practices that have left central Appalachian communities in desperate ruin. Numerous scientific studies have confirmed that "mining permits are being issued despite the preponderance of scientific evidence that impacts are pervasive and irreversible and that mitigation cannot compensate for the losses.". While providing less than 5-8 percent of our national coal production, the millions of pounds of daily explosives detonated for mountaintop removal operations in West Virginia, Kentucky, southwest Virginia and eastern Tennessee have resulted in nothing less than the unrecognized reality of regulated child abuse and manslaughter.

A strategic inquiry into underground coal mining in New South Wales, Australia, identified the need for non-market valuation studies and recommended increased use of benefit cost analysis in assessing individual mining proposals. This paper reports on the results of a choice experiment undertaken for a mine in the Southern Coalfield of New South Wales. Results from the study are used to aid the government decision by evaluating alternative proposals to continue underground coal mining operations. Results show that community wellbeing declines with increases in the kilometres of streams, the hectares of swamp, and the number of Aboriginal sites affected by mine subsidence. Community wellbeing increases with the length of time that the mine provides 320 jobs. Implicit price estimates from the choice experiment were incorporated into a benefit cost analysis of continued mining at the mine to assess the economic efficiency of a range of environmental restrictions on the proposed mining operations. Even
The whole permitting process has become much more complicated, more uncertain, and it is clearly going to take longer," said Carol Raulston, a spokeswoman for the National Mining Association. Hours before the announcement, Obama administration officials called regulators in the affected states to deliver a much different message. "The purposes stated today was to actually make (the permit process) more effective, make it more efficient, make it more transparent. And say yes more quickly and no more quickly," said Len Peters, Kentuckys energy and environmental secretary. President Barack Obama, as a candidate, expressed concern about the mountaintop mining although he stopped short of calling for an outright ban. His administration has cast a more critical eye on the process than did the Bush administration, which was accused of granting permits with little scrutiny. In March, the EPA announced it would more take a closer look at about 150 mountaintop mining permits pending before the Army Corps ...

Noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL) in mine workers, especially underground coal miners, continues to be a problem in the mining industry. The recently enacted MSHA noise standard, Part 62 - Occupational Noise Exposure (Federal Register, 1999), is aimed at reducing NIHL in the mining industry. The U.S. National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) is conducting a cross-sectional survey of noise sources and worker noise exposures to address NIHL in various aspects of coal mining including surface mining, coal preparation plants and underground mining. In underground bituminous coal mining, noise surveys, consisting of full-shift worker noise exposure, time-motion studies and equipment noise profiling, have been completed on longwall and continuous miner sections in six underground coal mines. The studies revealed widely varying shift-to-shift worker exposures, with workers in certain occupations routinely exposed to potentially hazardous levels of noise. A summary of these studies ...

The health screenings will be provided through the state-of-the-art NIOSH mobile testing unit at convenient community and mine locations.. NIOSH will provide the health screening for these coal miners under its Enhanced Coal Workers Health Surveillance Program. This public health outreach is in response to a well-documented increase in serious disease, and in response to new regulations requiring that health screenings be offered to surface miners.. This years first focus started the week of April 11 and ends on May 20, 2016, in coal mining regions throughout Oklahoma, Arkansas, Texas, ...
On August 6, 2012, MSHAs final rule on Examinations of Work Areas in Underground Coal Mines for Violations of Mandatory Health or Safety Standards takes effect. Implementation of the final rule marks the end of an 18-year crusade by MSHA to revise pre-shift, on-shift, weekly, and supplemental examination of nine regulations to include a requirement that operators examine, identify, and correct violations of mandatory health and safety standards. Historically, federal regulations have required underground coal mine operators to employ certified mine examiners to conduct examinations for hazardous conditions, and to test for methane and oxygen deficiency and determine if air is moving in the proper direction and at normal volumes ...

GRAND JUNCTION - New coal mining rules that go into effect in August are designed to decrease the hundreds of deaths that still occur from black lung disease. But the costly new rules are not popular with all miners and mine operators.. Officials from the Mine Safety and Health Administration spent more than five hours Thursday explaining the new regulations to dozens of coal mine operators and miners. The gathering in Grand Junction was the last of a series of seven meetings held around the country in states with coal mines.. "We still see miners getting black lung," said Kevin Stricklan, administrator of Coal Mine Safety and Health for MSHA. "Two hundred and eighty people die every year from respirable illness. Since 1968, over 76,000 miners have died.". To drop the numbers of what is medically called pneumoconiosis and to cut the $45 billion paid out in federal compensation, MSHA is instituting the first changes to coal mine dust rules since 1969.. Curt Floyd, a miner for 18 years with Signal ...
"Surface Composition of Respirable Silica Particles in a Set of U.S. An" by J. C. Harrison, P. S. Brower et al.
Respirable particles of high-percentage silica content from anthracite and bituminous coal mine dust samples were analyzed for aluminosilicate clay surface coating, by measuring silicon and aluminum X-ray spectra using scanning electron microscopy-energy dispersive X-ray analysis (SEM-EDS). Silicon and aluminum elemental ratios were determined with incident electron energies of 20 and 5 keV to reveal whether surface occlusion was present. Some 20 respirable-sized, non-agglomerated particles with silicon fraction of signal of 75% or more (for elements above sodium) were analyzed for each of 12 coal mine dust samples. Mine dust samples were from U.S. anthracite and bituminous coal mining regions involved in epidemiological studies of the U.S. National Study of Coal Workers Pneumoconiosis. Some particles of high-percentage silica content exhibited a decrease in the ratio of silicon-to-aluminum K-alpha line intensities with decreasing electron beam accelerating voltage, consistent with aluminosilicate clay
Mountaintop mining involves blasting off the top of a mountain so excess rock can be pushed to a neighboring valley. This allows miners to more easily reach coal. The eco-obnoxious practice, which has doubled in the last 8 years, has buried more than 1,000 miles of Appalachian streams over the last 20 years. Now, residents in states like West Virginia, Virginia and Kentucky are finding huge numbers of dead and deformed fish, a result of toxic selenium that leaches into rivers and streams. High selenium levels threaten fish survival and reproduction, and contaminated fish have offspring with serious birth defects-from crooked spines to deformed heads. Ultimately, the fish population could be wiped out. Selenium pollution affects fish first, so they serve as a barometer for future damage to ecosystems and human health. ...
Particle sizing of coal mine dust by pattern recognition of laser diffraction | (1996) | Zhao | Publications | Spie
Particle sizing by laser diffraction provides a prospective method for real-time detection of weight and size information of coal mine dust. Quickness, accuracy and ability to measure total and respirable dust weighs are some of the basic requirements for inversion method of the coal mine dust transducer. This paper presents a quick inversion scheme that can be referred to as pattern recognition of laser diffraction field. Single-chip computer system simulation results show that this method not only furnishes excellent estimates of both total and respirable dust weights in a very short time but also features high anti- noise ability and stability ...

Appalachia Rising: 100 Arrested at White House Calling for End to Mountaintop Coal Removal | Democracy Now!
JEFF BIGGERS: You know, I think across the nation, the coal fields really are having a watershed event for the progressive community, Amy. Appalachia Rising made a very compelling point that mountaintop removal only provides eight percent of our national coal production, and so theyre really taking the struggle now to Washington and asking President Obama, to say, "If you cant even stand up to Big Coal and follow your rule of science," - you know, the EPA has told us that in fact mountaintop removal creates irreversible damage to our headwater streams - "that if you cant even stand up to Big Coal and stop one of the most egregious human rights and environmental violations, how can we even begin to discuss comprehensive energy and environmental and healthcare legislation?" So I think Appalachia Rising, like so many coal field communities from Alaska to Alabama to southern Illinois, are really leading the way for the progressive community now to really hold the Obama administration accountable ...
A year after recording a record low of eight coal mining deaths in 2016, the number of mining deaths nearly doubled to 15 deaths in 2017. Eight of those deaths were in neighboring West Virginia with two mining deaths in Kentucky. No other state had more than one coal-mining death during the year, with Alabama, Colorado, Montana, Pennsylvania and Wyoming each recording one mining death.
Coal mine spoils (CMSs), the solid wastes originated from the rock formations and soil cover overlying or interbedded with coal seams, are a worldwide environmental management challenge. Previous studies have shown that salinity is of most concern among the CMSs environmental impacts, especially in Australia. With increasing concerns from both the governments and communities, there is a real need for the coal mining industry to understand the source, dynamics and management options of CMS salinity. We reviewed the general properties of CMSs from coal mine sites worldwide and the current understanding of the CMS salinity, which are in a limited number of available published reports. Properties (e.g., pH, electrical conductivity and hydraulic conductivity) of studied CMSs varied largely due to its complex lithological origination. A conceptual model was proposed to illustrate the origin, dispersion paths and transformations dynamics of salts in spoils, taking the scenario of a coal mine in ...

RIN: 1219-AB64). (i) Cost-benefit analysis. MSHA estimates that the first-year cost of the final rule will be $61 million and the annualized cost of the final rule at a 7 percent discount rate will be $28.1 million. MSHA estimates that the net benefits of the final rule are positive, with annualized net benefits of $12.1 million at a discount rate of 3 percent, and negative with annualized net benefits of -$8.1 million at a discount rate of 7 percent. Under the Federal Mine Safety and Health Act, MSHA is not required to use estimates of net benefits as the basis for its regulatory decisions. The net benefits at both the 3 and 7 percent discount rates do not include the benefits associated with sampling over a full-shift using the CPDM as well as several other provisions of the final rule. These provisions, although not quantified, will significantly reduce coal mine dust exposures and the incidences of other lung disease and significantly increase benefits..

A 51-year-old electrician who has worked in underground coal mines is the latest to be diagnosed with coal miners pneumoconiosis.
In Britain data come mainly from the Pneumoconiosis Field Research (PFR) programme conducted by the Institute of Occupational Medicine.6-12 This was based on 24 collieries. At an initial survey during 1953-58 more than 30 000 miners were examined and repeat surveys were subsequently carried out at approximately five yearly intervals. After the third survey conducted during 1963-68 examinations were discontinued at 14 of the 24 collieries, but all 24 were again included in a follow up survey carried out during 1974-80. This focused on a sample of 17 738 miners examined in the first survey (all those with pneumoconiosis and half of the remainder), and aimed to re-examine all survivors, whether or not they were still employed in the coal industry. Information collected at the surveys included details of smoking habits, occupational history and symptoms (elicited by questionnaires), chest radiographs and measurements of lung function (lung function was only assessed in the second and later surveys). ...
According to U.S. Rep. Mike Kellys website, he "strongly believes in protecting the lives of the unborn." That is an interesting and unexpected position for a man who supports the practice of mountaintop removal coal mining (MTR). Allow me to explain: MTR is practiced in West Virginia, Virginia, Kentucky and Tennessee. It is very different from traditional, underground coal mining. Rather than burrowing underground to reach coal seams, companies practicing MTR use a daily average of 5.5 million pounds of ammonium nitrate diesel fuel explosives to blow up mountains to expose the coal. That is a terribly destructive process because it destroys the entire mountain, destroys the valleys and streams surrounding the mountain (which are used as dumping grounds for leftover dirt, rocks and mining waste), and it sends toxic dust into the air that settles on homes, schools and businesses. This dust includes silica, sulfur, carbon, aluminum, iron and other trace elements. As a result, residents of MTR ...

Brown Urges Labor Secretary to Protect Miners' Safety Health | Press Releases | United States Senator Sherrod Brown
WASHINGTON, D.C. -U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH), along with U.S. Sens. Joe Manchin (D-WV), Tim Kaine (D-VA), Mark Warner (D-VA) and Bob Casey (D-PA), recently urged Secretary of Labor Alexander Acosta to protect mine safety and miners health by protecting a recent rule aimed at limiting miners exposure to respirable coal mine dust. The Senators letter comes after the rule was listed among a number of rules to be re-examined for elimination. The rule was aimed at reducing work-related illnesses that miners face like black lung disease. Brown applauded the Department of Labors effort to limit coal dust exposure when it was announced in 2014.. "Given this increase in black lung disease and the devastating impact that this disease has on coal miners and their families, we believe that it is critical that we maintain this rule," wrote the Senators in the letter. "Claims that the Respirable Dust Rule is unnecessary, imposes a costly burden, or provides little to no benefit to society ignore the ...
In a day and age when corporate profits all too often take precedence over the health and safety of working people, it is refreshing when a federal agency actually does something for the good of working people. Last month, the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) slashed the permissible exposure limit (PEL) for asbestos to 5 percent of what it was. Prior to that, the time-weighted average for an average eight-hour shift was 2 asbestos fibers per cubic centimeter of air (f/cc). Thanks to the action taken by the MSHA, that level has now been set at 0.1 f/cc. This new ruling applies to all metal and non-metal mines as well as surface coal-mining operations and the surfaces of underground coal mines. "Excursion" limits have also been cut dramatically. Before the new ruling, these limits were up to 10 f/cc for one hour out of a full eight-hour shift. Starting on 29 April, excursion limits for all mines will be reduced to 1f/cc for a maximum of 30 minutes. The new limits were proposed nearly ...

Dollos timing was fortunate. In 1878, an underground coal mine in southeast Belgium proved to be the final resting place of 31 well-preserved Iguanodon dinosaurs. Dollo oversaw the preparation and articulation of the skeletons, and in 1882, published the first of several papers about the fossils. He discussed the preservation of the skeletons, identified two separate species and addressed their posture. Dollo advocated a bipedal, kangaroo-like stance for Iguanodon. The posture has since been overturned, but paleontologists do acknowledge that Iguanodon probably stood primarily on its hind legs. Dollo speculated that Iguanodon was amphibious and used its powerful tail to swim like crocodiles. He also found that the "horn" that Mantell originally placed on the animals snout was really a thumb spike.. Its easy to shrug off Dollos task of mounting skeletons as no big deal, but articulating dinosaur bones is no trivial task. Fossil bones have two annoying characteristics that are individually ...
Competing in the 2015 Stockholm International Film Festivals Documentary section, Behemoth is a visually striking documentary about the negative effects that coal mining in rural Mongolia have on the environment, and the lives and health of the coal miners. Although the film strives to connect the dots between the causation of air pollution in big cities in China like Beijing that is in part due to unchecked industrial development, such as coal mining and the running of steelworks, it is also a general warning of global environmental degradation and its consequences on humanity.. In place of the usual documentary narrative format (some form of narration and interview segments), viewers are invited to experience the film in a more visceral manner, reflecting director Zhao Liangs own artistic view on the issues. Behemoth is told in the loose framework of Dantes The Divine Comedy: Inferno, Purgatory and Paradise, through images that are meant to provoke feelings of indignation and invoke actions ...

Record contained sufficient evidence to support ALJs finding that claimant was totally disabled by pneumoconiosis arising out of his coal mining employment based on his second application for Black Lung Disease benefits, after his first application had been denied by reason of abandonment. Employer conceded that claimant had demonstrated change in his condition of entitlement in that he was now totally disabled, and ALJ could properly find that claimant had labored for at least 15 years in surface mining conditions, which included work in presence of coal and rock dust, that was substantially similar to underground mining conditions, and that employer had failed to rebut resultant 15-year presumption that claimant was totally disabled due to pneumoconiosis. Fact that claimant had extensive history of cigarette smoking, or that record contained medical evidence that was in equipoise on issue regarding presence of totally disabling respiratory impairment did not require different result ...

MMDs continuous development and innovation culture has led to extensive development of its sizer design, offering a range of primary, secondary and tertiary sizing machines, with the largest capable of processing more than 10,000t/hr.. MMD twin-shaft sizers were originally designed to meet the needs of the underground coal mining industry where, traditionally, inline breakers had been used.. The initial parameters were to design a machine to handle an excess of 1,500t/hr. Within maximum dimensions of 1,200mm-wide by 600mm-high, it was necessary to size material accurately, deposit material in the centre of the conveyor belt, and for the machine to be lightweight and mobile, with all the breaking forces contained.. Having successfully achieved this and more within the demanding underground environment, it became evident that MMDs sizer was suitable for processing both hard, dry material and wet, sticky material, so could be used for many other applications.. ...
Blasting and mountaintop leveling cause irreversible damage to soils, hydrological flows and the unique assemblages of plants and animal. Thousands of bats and birds will be killed and many species of wildlife, including bear, moose and deer, will be forced to flee from the massive ground vibrations and the pulsating of high- and low-frequency noise.. If, as envisioned by the state, 360 miles of mountaintop industrial wind structures are built (resulting in 50,000 acres of clearcut), the visual pollution of 400-foot towers with flashing lights, and the accompanying noise pollution, will penetrate thousands of square miles of the Maine wild lands. It would completely alter the bucolic nature of the quiet Maine countryside..

Description. Aerial view of the North Sands shipyard of J.L. Thompson & Sons Ltd, Sunderland, May 1959 (TWAM ref. DT.TUR/2/22169C). This set of aerial images is intended as a short historical tour of the River Wear from the Piers to Pallion. It gives us an impression of what the River looked like during the middle years of the Twentieth Century, when it was a hive of industrial activity. Sunderland had an international reputation for shipbuilding and this is well represented in this set with images of its famous shipyards such as Austin & Pickersgill, J.L. Thompson & Sons and Sir James Laing & Sons. The River Wear was also home to a thriving marine engineering industry, reflected here by images of the engine works of William Doxford & Sons and George Clark. Other industries are also featured such as a glassmaking and of course the key industry of coal mining. Mining is represented by images of Wearmouth Colliery and the riverside coal staithes, which were vital to the coal trade. These images ...
If you find yourself in a discussion doesnt include Jeni Hankins of southwestern Virginia, walk away--its not worth your time. Hankins approach is often compared to that of Hazel Dickens (1925-2011) and aptly so. Though Hankins has a smoother, less nasal voice than Dickens, it has the same born-in-the-bone twang-the kind you dont get by dressing up country and scouring songbooks. Hankins also grew up in the same contiguous coal mine region that spawned Dickens, and with the same sensibilities: an appreciation for the grace of ordinary people, mountain gospel music, support for miners unions, and a gift for finding beauty where less attuned people fail to see it. Think Im kidding about that last point? In "Good," a song co-written with her musical partner Billy Kemp, the duo muse on coal mining, Sears Roebuck, Hardshell Baptists, and banjos. The banjo wins: "And he played us a tune from the old country/and the hills, they rang with our song/God said it was good/and we knew that it was ...

Novel feature of 1990 CAAA was allowances: the right to emit ton of SO2 good in any year. At any years end, company must "pay" as many allowances as its total emissions that year. The utilities could freely buy, sell, or bank allowances Initially allowances granted yearly on historical basis. Renewable sources could earn allowances on basis of electricity generated, pollution avoided or set-asides (fraction of allowances). Use.The 1992 price of $250/allowance dropped in a decade to $100.

Trends in mortality from occupational hazards among men in England and Wales during 1979-2010 | Occupational & Environmental...
Our findings indicate that over recent decades, there has been a large and continuing fall in mortality from most of the occupational hazards considered. In many cases, this appears to have come about through improved safety, but it also reflects reductions in the numbers of men employed in more hazardous jobs such as coal mining, and falling mortality from some diseases across the whole population. Notable exceptions to the general improvement are diseases caused by asbestos, especially in some construction trades, sinonasal cancer in woodworkers, and injuries by animals and plants in farmworkers, for which there was still no clear decline in excess mortality.. As in our previous report,2 we limited our analysis of trends to men. This was because in the early part of the study period, most women who died at age 20-74 years had spent only limited time in paid work, and during 1979-1990, only 30% had occupations recorded on their death certificates.5 Furthermore, with a few notable exceptions ...
A region by region look at working in HR in the UK. This month we investigate North East. Edited by Ross Wigham, e-mail: [email protected] Reality check working wonders for North East. Once famed for shipbuilding and coal mining the North-East has been forced to confront harsh economic realities and transform itself from a heartland of old industry. Nothing represents this resurgence more than the new Quayside in Newcastle with the blinking eye Millennium Bridge and the world renowned Baltic Art Gallery as its centrepiece. The region, comprising County Durham, Tyne and Wear, Northumberland and the Tees Valley, now has a strong reputation for innovation and industrial change. Data for the three months to January 2004 shows the employment rate at 69.6 per cent, up by 2.2 per cent for the same period in 2003. In real terms, there are around 1.09 million people in work and 73,000 unemployed. However, unemployment is still a problem for the North East, which, despite falling slightly to 6.3 ...
Now, is all or part of that sentence from the petroleum industry? I ask because anyone in the industry knows that they are fracking with various gas gels, in the Eagle Ford play in Texas. They have been working on the process for about 3-4 years, and have had success. Now it is being tested in Ohio, and NW Pennsylvania, in the Marcellus and Utica shale plays. No water, no chemicals, just 100% recoverable gas, in gel form. On top of that, 90% of the hydrofracking operations, in the Marcellus play, recycle the retrieved water, for use in fracking new wells. Duke University, who original set out to prove the dangers of hydrofracking, under the auspices of the Ithaca based Park Foundation and George Soros, has announced a method to make the water more suitable for recycling, and to reduce the radiation from naturally occurring radon, in the water, and the solids, which need to be disposed of. Using the acid water from coal mining, a disposal problem in its own right, they are able to create more ...
Possibilities for what could fill the Huntley site were tossed about at Tonawanda Tomorrow sessions. They included a bioenergy plant, an industrial heritage museum, and much-needed green space. River access along the towns six miles of shoreline is now limited to one sliver of parkland south of the power plant.. Thats in contrast to the towns northern neighbor - a significantly smaller city, confusingly also named Tonawanda - where a lush, verdant ribbon beckons visitors to the riverfront. A pockmarked bicycle/pedestrian path in the town suddenly turns pristine at the city line.. "We have a clear pathway forward," Newberry says. But questions about what will become of the Huntley site make it clear, she adds, that "our work is not over.". Unlike the Bethlehem Steel site, Huntley is not eligible for New Yorks Superfund Program, says Erica Ringewald, a state Department of Environmental Conservation spokeswoman. However, NRG or a future owner that takes on the remediation effort could qualify ...
Like many Australians, I love the game of cricket. It is the closest thing to a national sport we have. In summer, if you go for a drive through any Australian city on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon, you will see that a section of virtually any park will have cricket games going on in it. Where I grew up, in my primary school (in an industrial and coal mining town ) playing a weekly cricket match in summer was mandatory. (Plus we would play spontaneously organised cricket matches during lunchtimes most days). In high school, we more choice of sports, but (like at any school in Australia) competitive cricket teams were fielded. (As is common for competitive team sports in Australia, if you werent any good you werent particularly welcome to play past about age 12, and you would go and do something individual or non-competitive instead. Australian sport is ruthlessly competitive, even at a childrens level. This is not necessarily a good thing about Australian, but it does mean we field good ...

The impact of acid rock drainage (ARD) on South Africas already threatened water resources is a serious concern. While acid waters emanating from groundwater rebound through the Witwatersrand gold basins has received the majority of the media attention and elicited the strongest response from the authorities, ARD from diffuse sources, primarily associated with coal mining, is likely to impact a far larger area. The traditional chemical and physical interventions are not particularly well suited to these discharges. Research into passive and semi-passive systems has met with varying degrees of success. Typically, the processes that target sulphate salinity make use of biological sulphate reduction, often utilising complex organic carbon sources to provide the electron donor. The sulphide product is highly toxic and presents a significant risk to the environment and human health and needs to be carefully managed. The most attractive option is the partial oxidation of sulphide to elemental ...

Part one of a two-part series. It wasn't supposed to happen to coal miners in Mark McCowan's generation. It wasn't supposed to strike so
RICHLAND, Wash. - There is growing consensus among scientists, regulators, politicians, industry and the public that we need to know more about the possible harmful or adverse effects of nanoparticles on human health. Likewise, most agree that these incredibly small materials can behave quite differently from conventional materials. Nonetheless, neighborhood stores feature products that promise benefits from these near-atomic level materials, from paints and cosmetics to toothpaste and sunscreens. But, could we be putting human health at risk by exposing consumers to potentially toxic materials?. To investigate the damage potential of sub-micron sized particles, S.K. Sundaram and Thomas J. Weber, scientists at the Department of Energys Pacific Northwest National Laboratory in Richland, Wash., have harnessed living cells to monitor responses to a variety of toxins. They presented their findings Friday at the American Association for the Advancement of Science annual meeting.. "The process ...

Progressive Massive Fibrosis (PMF), characterized by the development of large conglomerate masses of dense fibrosis (usually in the upper lung zones), can complicate silicosis and coal workers pneumoconiosis. Conglomerate masses may also occur in other pneumoconioses, such as talcosis, berylliosis (CBD), kaolin pneumoconiosis, and pneumoconiosis from carbon compounds, such as carbon black, graphite, and oil shale. Conglomerate masses can also develop in sarcoidosis, but usually near the hilae and with surrounding paracitricial emphysema. The disease arises firstly through the deposition of silica or coal dust (or other dust) within the lung, and then through the bodys immunological reactions to the dust. According to the International Labour Office (ILO), PMF requires the presence of large opacity exceeding 1 cm (by x-ray). By pathology standards, the lesion in histologic section must exceed 2 cm to meet the definition of PMF. In PMF, lesions most commonly occupy the upper lung zone, and are ...
Coalworkers' simple pneumoconiosis and exposure to dust at 10 British coalmines. | Occupational & Environmental Medicine
Five physicians radiological assessments of coalworkers simple pneumoconiosis (CWP) in 2600 coalminers at 10 British collieries have been studied in relation to the individuals estimated lifetime (mean 33 years) exposure to respirable coalmine dust. Estimates of exposure were based on 20 years of observations at each colliery. Radiographic classifications were clearly associated with the measures of dust exposure. Important unexplained differences between some of the collieries were disclosed. Among men with similar cumulative dust exposures those with longer exposure time had higher prevalence of CWP. In general there was no evidence that the quartz concentrations experienced (average 5% of mixed dust) affected the probability of developing coalworkers simple pneumoconiosis. Some men reacted unfavourably (two or more steps of change on the 12-point radiological scale) over a 10-year period to coalmine dust with a relatively high quartz content.. ...

While the mining industry has used seawater in different parts of the world for many years, in Chile there are only a few isolated cases, usually on the part of small or medium-sized companies that deal with minerals whose extraction is not affected by the salinity of the water, he explained.. The first big mining company to use seawater in Chile was Minera Esperanza, a joint venture between Antofagasta Minerals and the Marubeni Corporation.. The companys copper mine uses untreated seawater, transported through a 145-kilometre-long pipeline, in all of its processes. Seawater currently accounts for 30 percent of all of the water is utilises.. The state-owned National Copper Corporation of Chile (CODELCO) will use seawater for the first time to exploit the sulphide reserves of the Radomiro Tomic mine, in one of the structural projects the company is implementing to extend the useful life of a number of its mines.. "In the case of the Radomiro Tomic (RT) Sulphides project, the use of seawater ...

BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - A Wyoming company has entered a partnership to develop a Washington state coal port for shipments of the fuel to Asia, in a deal that gives Montanas Crow Tribe the future option of a 5 percent stake in the project.. Cloud Peak Energy paid $2 million up front and will pay up to $30 million to cover permitting expenses for the Gateway Pacific Terminal, in exchange for a 49 percent stake in the project, spokesman Rick Curtsinger said Friday.. [Native Advertisement] The port in the Puget Sound, just south of the U.S.-Canada border, would accommodate almost 60 million tons a year of coal and other commodities.. Cloud Peak, based in Gillette, plans to construct a major mine on the Crow Reservation.. Coal companies hope exports to Asia will shore up their industry, which has been battered by competition from cheap natural gas and more stringent restrictions on pollution caused by burning the fuel.. Port sponsor SSA Marine retained a 51 percent ownership in the project. The ...
WASHINGTON - The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is releasing action plans developed by 20 electric utility facilities with 70 coal ash impoundments, describing the measures the facilities are taking to make their impoundments safer. The action plans are a response to EPAs final assessment reports on the structural integrity of these impoundments that the agency made public last May. Coal ash was brought prominently to national attention in 2008 when an impoundment holding disposed coal ash waste generated by the Tennessee Valley Authority failed, creating a massive spill in Kingston, Tennessee, that released more than 5 million cubic yards of coal ash to the surrounding area and is regarded as one of the worst environmental disasters of its kind in history. Shortly afterwards, EPA began overseeing the cleanup, as well as investigating the structural integrity of impoundments where coal ash waste is stored ...
LEXINGTON, Ky. (Nov. 21, 2017) - University of Kentucky researchers have produced nearly pure rare earth concentrates from Kentucky coal using an environmentally-conscious and cost-effective process, a groundbreaking accomplishment in the energy industry.. "As far as I know, our team is the first in the world to have provided a 98 percent pure rare earth concentrate from a coal source," said Rick Honaker, professor of mining engineering.. From national defense to health care, rare earth elements or REEs are essential components of technologies like iPhones, computers, missiles and other applications. Interest in REEs is at an all-time high in the U.S. right now, with the Department of Energy investing millions in research. Honaker has received $7 million from the department to produce rare earths from Kentucky coal sources, a feat he has now accomplished, and $1 million for other REE projects.. "The primary objective for our DoE (Department of Energy) project was to produce a concentrate ...
Germanys consumption of coal jumps in 2012. (Photo credit: Edal Anton Lefterov, Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 Unported license). The BDEW says the trend for renewable energies is positive. The share of electricity produced by renewable sources rose in 2012 to about 21.9% (2011: 20.3). However, the share of CO2-free nuclear energy fell from 17.7% to 16%. The drop in nuclear energy was partly offset by a rise in coal-fired electricity, meaning increased CO2 emissions. Black coals share of electricity jumped from 18.5% to 19.1%. The share of electricity from lignite-coal rose a full percent to 25.6%, thus making it Germanys largest source of electrical power.. Germanys use of coal has increased and thus has not gotten more green; it has gotten "dirtier". Thats what we are getting for the tens of billions of euros in added electricity costs incurred from adding renewable energy capacity.. The share by relatively clean natural gas in electricity generation dropped from 13.6 to ...
