Long-Term Development Program For the Coal Industry till 2030 Approved

Abstract
The Russian Federation government has approved a Long-term Development Program for the Coal Industry till 2030 developed by the Ministry of Energy of Russia. The respective resolution was adopted at the conference on the subject of The Outcome of the Restructuring and Development Prospects of the Coal Industry that was held in Kemerovo under the guidance of Russian Federation premier V.V. Putin on January 24 2012.
It provides some details about the Long-term Program and states in particular that the volume of budgetary funds for the program implementation accounts for less than 9% of the total volume of its financing (251.8 billion rubles of 3.7 trillion rubles) thus it is planned to reach a new level of state and private partnership. The program expects the coal production to increase up to 430 mln tons by 2030 and to be performed in 82 open-pit mines and 64 mines with the labor productivity (production of coal per one employee) being 5 times higher than that in 2010 (9000 tons and 1880 tons respectively). Throughout the program 505 mln tons of new and upgraded coal production facilities will be introduced whereas 375 mln ton facilities of unviable and loss-making companies will be decommissioned and capital asset depreciation levels will decrease from 70 to 75 down to 20%. The implementation of the Long-term Program will result in lower freight costs and improved efficiency of coal supplies. Thus a coal product transport range will decrease by 1.2 time on the average with 1.4 time decrease in the domestic market.

Improving Underground Works Efficiency through a Comprehensive Control of Geomechanic and Gas Dynamic Processes of Coal Mines

Abstract
The readers are offered an article based on the results of the work for which a group of the leading Russian and Kazakh scientists were awarded the academician A. M. Terpigorev prize by the Mining Academy in 2011.The studies make it possible to improve the mining efficiency through a comprehensive control of geomechanic and gas dynamic processes of coal mines. Methods have been developed that allows you to determine the values of primary and subsequent steps of failure throughout the length of the extraction pillar (long wall face mining section).
Competent and considered technical solutions in connection with the choice of development system and bed mining procedures allow the geomechanic and gas dynamic situation in mines to be controlled throughout the operation and ensure safe working conditions.

Youth Integration as the Basis for the Coal Industry's Steady Development

Abstract
Over the last few years the coal industry has performed an active policy of modernization, technical upgrading and setting up new competitive facilities that offer new opportunities to the coal companies. However along with positive trends the industry has been increasingly facing a challenge of a growing deficiency in qualified manpower (especially, young engineers). Given the fact the presence of this component is one of the premises for a steady development the issues of developing staff potential and bringing the youth policy into the forefront are getting increasingly topical. On December 7 2011 in MGTU a round table for developing staff potential and youth policy in the coal industry was held within the framework of the Second All-Russian Staffing Conference Staff Potential of Fuel-Energy Complex as the Basis for the Implementation of Russias Energy Strategy. The round table saw a presentation of the project Youth Forum of Mining Leaders backed by the Ministry of Energy of Russia, the same presentation being given in this article.
