Formatted Abstract/Summary
Despite numerous studies on underground coal mine face ventilation reported in the literature, there is still a need to critically analyse the performance of current face ventilation practices and provide guidelines for the Australian mining industry on the design and implementation of effective and efficient face ventilation strategies. This paper presents a review of current techniques utilised in the development face ventilation of underground coal mines. The focus is on the analysis of factors influencing the effective dilution of face methane concentrations and respirable dust levels. Extensive research has been conducted with a thorough understanding of the main principles of development face ventilation techniques and associated problems being attained. Continuing on from this research will be an investigation on the various face ventilation techniques and their effectiveness in Australian underground coal mines and the development of optimal effective operating guidelines.
