Coal Mining Machinery in Russia

Coal Mining in Russia

Russia is currently the fifth largest producer of coal, and has the second largest reserves, estimated at 175 billion. The majority of its coal reserves is located behind the Ural Mountains in Siberia. In 2011, Russia produced 336.3 million t of coal. Some 90% of the output was provided by just the 18 largest players in the industry, demonstrating the concentrated nature of the Russian coal mining business. There are both surface and underground coal deposits in Russia. Mining industry development requires high quality coal mining machinery in Russia.

Coal Mining Techniques

Coal mining is the process of removing coal from the ground. There are two genrally two types of mining methods: underground mining and surface mining. If the coal seam is fewer than 125 feet under the surface, it is mined by surface mining. Coal that is deeper than 125 feet is removed from the ground by underground mining.

Surface mining is used when a coal seam is located close to the surface. Heavy equipment is used to clear the land of trees, shrubs and other overburden.

Underground mining is used when the coal seam lies deep in the earth. In an underground mine only some of the coal is removed. The coal that remains helps support the mine roof. The coal that is mined is put on conveyor belts. The conveyor belts take the coal to the surface.
