Evaluation of In-Seam Borehole Stability in Coal Mines

Change in the stress regime during the mining of longwall blocks result in large scale ground movement around the block. Ineffective pre-drainage of the coal seam under extraction using in-seam holes may result in the collapse of the holes. Floor and roof holes are influenced by block movement. Holes which may have sheared may re-open again.
