Monazite Mining. All monazite mining is focused on placer deposits because they are easier to mine and the monazite is often present in higher concentrations than in hard rock deposits. Other heavy minerals that accumulate with monazite include gold, platinum, magnetite, ilmenite, rutile, zircon, and a variety of gemstones. The heavy sands

Drilling Methods Used in Coal Mines Posted by: Jess Peláez in Drilling, Drilling and Drill Results For coal deposits, like most other minerals, drilling is a key to identifying in detail the grade and size of the resource, both prior to mine development, and during operations.
Coal is formed from the remains of land plants and they did not evolve until the Devonian period. PreDevonian coal deposits have been removed by uplift and erosion. Plant decaying bacteria were the dominant life form prior to the Devonian.
Formation of Coal as a Fossil Fuel Coal in the Richmond Basin is an upper Triassic formation, compacted more than 160 million years ago. At that time, the Richmond area was a dense warm lowland forest/swamp of huge green trees and plants growing beside rivers,
The coal fields of the Unites States can be divided into six major provinces. The Appalachian and Interior Provinces contain dominantly bituminous coal in strata of Pennsylvanian age. The coal seams are relatively thin and are mined both by surface and underground methods. Sulfyur content is low to moderate in the Appalachian Province, generally high in the Interior province.

Gold is relatively scarce in the earth, but it occurs in many different kinds of rocks and in many different geological environments. Though scarce, gold is concentrated by geologic processes to form commercial deposits of two principal types: lode (primary) deposits and placer (secondary) deposits.
Over the last 15 years Indonesia has experienced a surge in coal exploration, which has led to the development of a major export industry. This coal exploration has improved the understanding of the geology of the Indonesian coal deposits. The main economic coal deposits are of Eocene and Miocene to Pliocene age, which mainly occur
The Geology of Alberta''s Coal Deposits. While most of the world''s coal deposits were laid down in peat beds some 300 million years ago, Alberta''s coal is from younger geological periods of about 140 million and 70 million years ago.

Coal Mining History. The discovery of coal in Colonial ia was first reported by Colonel William Byrd in 1701, who noted coal occurrences on the banks of the James River near the town of Manakin (Brown and others, 1952). Coal was likely being used for domestic purposes even earlier than that by Huguenot settlers (Wilkes, 1988).
