March 2011

The lead feature of this month’s issue of World Coal is opencast mining. There are articles on draglines, weighing machines, trucks, shovels and in-pit crushing and conveying. The regional insight turns to Russia, with an overview of the last 12 months in the country’s coal mining industry and a comprehensive look at how the sector is evolving. Barry Baxter keeps readers up to date on the southern African coal industry and Tony Lodge reports on an innovative use of pulverised fly ash. This month’s spotlight is on lubrication and wear protection.
