Coal mining

Technology

EMIL has introduced the best mining practices to achieve high level of production efficiency sustainably.

At BCML, the company has adopted blast free mining through the use of surface miner technology to excavate coal. The environment friendly and cost effective method eliminates the need for crushing. The OB removal is being done using state of the art PC2000 hydraulic excavator & 100T 777D dump trucks.

The overburden removed before mining of coal is back filled inside the pit in decoaled area to avoid environmental damage. The company has refilled 100 acre to restore the land to its pristine state.

Since October 2015, BCML has ensured zero discharge water outside the mine. The water which gets accumulated inside the mine is pumped into voids to use the same for recharging of the strata and for use of dust suppression and other useful work.
