COAL RECOVERY FROM BITUMINOUS COAL SURFACE MINES IN THE EASTERN UNITED STATES, A SURVEY

The Bureau of Mines conducted a field survey of 153 bituminous coal strip auger mines to estimate coal recovery from surface mines in the Eastern United States. Recovery was calculated from field data by measuring coal losses resulting from mining coal and leaving barriers. The wide recovery range at individual mines indicates the variability of the eastern surface coal mining industry.
