Systematical and Radical Precautions in the Prevention of Mine Accidents and Professional Diseases

Güyagüler, Tevfik
The increasing demand for energy raw materials and various industrial minerals increased the importance of mining. It is obvious that this demand will be rising in the near future. Mining, due to the risks it involves, requires specific knowledge, experience and continuous technical inspection.


Stability investigation of Eti borax mine Hisarcık tailing dam using finite element analysis
Mokhtari, Pozhhan; Düzgün, H. Şebnem; Department of Mining Engineering (2014)
Today, with modern technological developments, the need for raw materials has also increased, which resulted in the development of mining industry. Therefore, there should be a plan for tailing storage and constructing a reliable tailing dam to store waste materials. In this study, the current and reckoning condition of the height rising in Hisarcik tailing dam is investigated for any potential stability problems. This tailing dam is one of the main tailing impoundments in Emet Borax mine, which is located ...
Contrasting effects of biochar and hydrothermally treated coal gangue on leachability, bioavailability, speciation and accumulation of heavy metals by rapeseed in copper mine tailings
Munir, Mehr Ahmed Mujtaba; Liu, Guijian; Yousaf, Balal; Mian, Md Manik; Ali, Muhammad Ubaid; Ahmed, Rafay; Cheema, Ayesha Imtiyaz; Naushad, Mu (Elsevier BV, 2020-03-15)
The purpose of this research was to examine the influence of hydrothermally treated coal gangue (HTCG) with and without biochar (BC) on the leaching, bioavailability, and redistribution of chemical fractions of heavy metals (HMs) in copper mine tailing (Cu-MT). An increase in pH, water holding capacity (WHC) and soil organic carbon (SOC) were observed due to the addition of BC in combination with raw coal gangue (RCG) and HTCG. A high Cu and other HMs concentration in pore water (PW) and amended Cu-MT were ...
Application of Technical and Economic Analysis on Refuge and Self Breathing Apparatus Design
Amır, Taghiıadeh; Demirel, Nuray; Bahramı, Ataallah (2011-05-13)
Most of the time, accidents happened in mining operations such as drilling, transportation, excavation, and supporting operations. Moreover, underground mining operations have restrictions and hazards. Indeed, lack of oxygen, severe heat, thirst and starvation are some great events when miners trapped in mining accidents. Thus, refuge provides a secure location for workers in accidents, which can solve these problems. These rooms located on specific position and out fitted them with peculiar devices. Howeve...
Comparison of sub-processes and final products of iron and steel production with life cycle assessment
Ölmez, Gülnur; Yetiş, Ülkü; Department of Environmental Engineering (2011)
Iron and steel production is one of the most resource and energy demanding industries around the world. Throughout the life cycle of iron and steel products, the intensive use of raw materials and energy results in contributions to a wide range of environmental impacts. This study conducts a life cycle assessment (LCA) for iron and steel production in Turkey using SimaPro software and IMPACT 2002+ impact assessment method with the purpose of comparing the impacts of life cycle stage (coke making, sintering,...
Optimization of the lubricating oil inventory policy applied in a mining company
Şenses, Sena; Gölbaşı, Onur; Bakal, İsmail Serdar (2021-02-01)
The mining industry should sustain mass and continuous production with an essential contribution of high-capacity machinery. Therefore, spare parts inventory management is vital in ensuring the intended mining production rate as an integral part of maintenance policies. In this paper, a mixed-integer model is presented to solve a multi-item and multi-supplier spare parts inventory model. This model is addressed to a lubricating oil inventory problem in one of the biggest multi-process mining companies in Tu...
