And to feed the coal onto the conveyor belt To remove any metal objects that have goes through the mining process (e.g. rib bolts or stray tools) Coal itself is the valuable mineral and its gangue minerals are dependent on the local depositional environment as well as the mining method. Gangue minerals within coal deposits usually include carbonate minerals within the coal cleats as well as shale and pyrite bands. Depending on the mining method there may also be some roof and floor rock that can also be classified as a gangue mineral in terms of processing. Purpose The required level of coal processing is related to requirements stipulated by the end consumer. Coal is usually burnt in power stations or coked and used the steel making process.

History of Mining

University of New South Wales - MINE1010 - Mineral Resources Engineering

It is generally known that mining is an important primary industry in Australian and it is also a great contributor to the Australian economy. In fact, there are more than 6 per cent of Australian’s economy was contributed by the minerals resources industry accounts and more than $125 billion had been invested in the last 10 year(Australian Mining, 2012). Australian began to produce minerals in large quantities form the early days of European settlement at Sydney Cove. Moreover, gold was first found in New South Wales in 1823. It was found on a survey mission in hills near the Fish River wast of Bathurst by James McBrien who was a public official. In addition, mining booms in Australian had also encouraged immigration to Australia because the development of mining had provided a huge number of employments to thousands of people. It is obvious that the mining has a great impact on the development of Australian social society. There are many mineral areas in Australian. In this report, it is going to take the city of Newcastle as an example to talk about the mining history in Australia. The Newcastle is surrounded by Cessnock, Maitland, Wyong and Teralba is in the central area. Between 2008 and 2009, there were about 15.1 Mt of saleable coal produced in Newcastle. In fact, the coal was first found in NSW was in 1791 near Newcastle by European. The report also includes the influences of mining on Australian history and social society.

Impact of Coal Mining at Newcastle

This student studied:
University of New South Wales - MINE1010 - Mineral Resources Engineering

Coal is a mineral found in the earth. It is organic, hence it is mainly composed of carbon, hydrogen and oxygen, with trace amounts of other elements such as nitrogen and sulphur. It also contains a varying amount of water, as well as some inorganic substances, most of which make up the ash when combusted. Coal is formed via a natural process, where organic matter (from millions of years old plant matter) decay and are subject to heat and pressure. The varying amounts of heat and pressure give rise to the different types of coal that is produced. This process is known as coalification. The variety in the formation process causes two different types of coal to be formed- black and brown coal. Black coal is softer, and has more energy and lower water content than the brown variant. Brown coal is harder, and burns with about a quarter of the amount of energy as black coal. It also has higher carbon and lower moisture compared to black coal.
