Why Does Methane explode in Mines?
(a version which is not considered in reports)

Abstract
The article sets forth the causes of methane (and powdered coal) explosions in some mines. When the main roof collapses the open area releases gases featuring a high methane content and if there is an ignition source at this time a flash or explosion occurs. High methane contents at such moments may not be avoided using the existing technologies in principle. A crucial measure to ensure a complete fire and explosion safety in mines is the use of an artificial atmosphere inside them.

Keywords
Mine, Methane, Explosion, Open area, Main roof, Zyryanovskaya and Raspadskaya mines.

Spiral Separators for a Fine Slurry Coal Benefication

Abstract
The editorial staff of Ugol journal would like to offer you a new column which will be fully dedicated to benefication history, engineering, technologies and practices. This column will be hosted by Professor Uglev who is a collective figure but his publications and responses to the readers questions will be backed by the expertise of many experts who have devoted their lives to this absorbing and useful occupation both in this country and abroad. Every expert while aspiring to be the first among the equals industriously safeguards his/her professional secrets and does not realize that its only a continuous development that gives you a chance to be successful. A search for solutions based solely on your experience is likely to end up with re-inventing a wheel. On the other hand if you share your experience and borrow those of the other professionals this will serve as the basis for a constant and comprehensive growth. The purpose of this column is to bring the experts together in order to jointly find solutions to the existing tasks and communicate so as to ensure that no further problems may appear. Please send your questions to the editorial office of Ugol journal or email to uglev@coalexpert.ru. Your questions and answers to them will be regularly published in this journal. The first publication is focused on the spiral separators for a fine slurry coal benefication.

Keywords
Coal processing, Coal benefication, Coal benefication experience, Spiral separators.
