Analysis of the Influence of Underground Coal Mining on the Environment

H. Nan, S. Wang

Abstract

The use of coal is an indispensable part of China's industrialization process. China is a big coal country and the consumption of coal has been above 60%. The interaction of various factors makes the underground mining of coal more and more serious. At the same time, the depth of mining is increasing. The lack of appropriate management measures after the mining of coal seams has resulted in the collapse of the overlying rock formations in most of the goafs and the formation of fissures and gullies on the surface. The movement of the overlying strata also destroys the aquifers in the strata, causing the groundwater to be lost and the coal mining water to be discharged without treatment, so that harmful impurities penetrate into the groundwater. Not only does it have a great impact on the environment, it also causes irreparable damage to human daily life. In the previous studies, this article gives a more succinct description of the influence of underground coal mining on surface, groundwater, atmosphere and biology. Use the analytic hierarchy process to identify the most serious environmental impacts. In addition, the causes of the impacts and the ways of summing up are explained in light of their own majors.
