Overview

Spontaneous combustion is considered one of the core risks in underground coal mines. Similarly reactive ground provides a similar risk to Underground metalliferous mines. Ventilation control forms a significant part of the management plans to control these hazards. Significant incidents have occurred in Australia and overseas that had the potential to cause loss of life. This course will address the causes, incidents and controls required to manage this hazard.  Additionally, case studies and spontaneous management plans will be reviewed.
