Highwall Miner coal operations -- still not federally regulated by OSMRE

Highwall Miners are the most effective and cheapest method of producting coal -- essentially these remote-controlled continuous miners. These can advance much further into the highwall than augers (up to 600 feet), and machines are available that can mine in as far as 1600 ft, achieving production levels (in Appalachia) of 300000 tons a month -- crew of 3 or 4 folk, and averages 30 -- 40 tons per man-hour. --- The federal Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement (OSMRE or OSM) does not regulated Highwall Miner operations. Until 2002, virtually all higwall mining operations were regulated as surface mining operations (auger mining) rather than as underground operations. . . . The auger mining rule indicates that OSM will consider rulemaking if it becomes necessary. . . . (The OSM Assistant Director for Program Support (AD-PS) presented an option paper to Director Wahlquist in April of 2007. In May of 2007, AD-PS was informed that OSM would not take action on the topic and treatment of Highwall Mining Operations would remain status quo [ -- up to the individual states to determine]. === Terex System video: www.youtube.com Addcarsystem video: www.addcarsystems.com Fairchild Miner video: www.youtube.com oilprice.com This video was posted here: www.youtube.com
