Review of Queensland underground coal mines’ stone dust

Aug 16, 2013 A coal dust explosion is one of the principal hazards in an underground coal mine. These mines must develop, establish and maintain an adequate and effective safety and health management system (SHMS) to ensure risk from such hazards is at an acceptable level. One of the primary controls against this hazard is the application of stone dust throughout mine
