mar 14, 2013 in both deep and open cast coal mines methane gas is an ever-present hazard. citys methane and other flammable gas sensors have extensive approvals to the various global mining specifications. specific regional issues are a further complication, for example, in south african mines, hydrogen cross-sensitivity is a particular concern.,the importance of coal statistics south africa,jun 11, 2015 in 2013, coal contributed r51 billion to south africas economy, compared with golds r31 billion 1. measured at current prices, coal is now king. the minerals contribution to overall mining value added rose to 22,5 in 2013 from 17,4 in 1993. platinum group metals (pgms) came a close second in 2013, at 21,0.
several major concerns confront coal in south africa. for instance, the run-of-mine coal qualities are now generally higher in ash content and therefore lower in grade as much of the better quality coals have already been selectively extracted. coals on the thermal (steam) market in south africa are sold on grade (i.e., calorific content).,the estimation of greenhouse gas emissions from south,contribution by the coal mining industry resulting from spontaneous combustion. the estimation of greenhouse gas emissions from south african surface and abandoned coal mines by a.p. cook and p.j.d. lloyd synopsis gas samples were taken from a wide range of target areas on dumps arising from coal mining activities. some of the dumps had largely
mining industry, mrac appointed a task group to advise on measures to be taken to minimize the risk of flammable gas and coal dust ignition and/or explosions at collieries in south africa. this guideline is a result of the work of that task group. 1.2.4. this guideline and the cop to which it refers, will deal with good ventilation practices,africoal energy review,aug 11, 2017 coal was only recently overtaken by platinum group metals as the countrys leading commodity by sales, but it remains the most significant component of the countrys mining in terms of value added accounting for 25.1. strong international coal prices of around us$130/t have raised the attractiveness of exports, with most of south
