The desert runoff area is an important water source in Yushen mining area. To protect water resource in desert, and ensure safe and efficient coal mining, the authors develop a key technology for coal mining with water contained in desert. The influence factors and the zoning standards of the coal mining with water contained are analyzed by means of field measurement and numerical calculation. The results show that: coal miming under river recharged by desert may lead to two type of water loss, i. e., flow in river and groundwater in recharge area. The recharge area is divided into water and sand inrush region, water inrush region, leakage region and water retention region. The residual thicknesses of aquifuge can be regarded as a safe indication whether the flow in river could pour into worked-out section or not. Repairing cracks in leakage area, building dam drainage in water bursting area, using the hydrodynamic conditions and controlling sand source flow technology can control in water and sand inrush area. The comprehensive treatment of mining area made a successful engineering application for the mining face across trench. © 2017, Editorial Office of Journal of China Coal Society.

The thickness of tectonically deformed coal (TDC) has positive correlation associations with gas outbursts. In order to predict the TDC thickness of coal beds, we propose a new quantitative predicting method using an extreme learning machine (ELM) algorithm, a principal component analysis (PCA) algorithm, and seismic attributes. At first, we build an ELM prediction model using the PCA attributes of a synthetic seismic section. The results suggest that the ELM model can produce a reliable and accurate prediction of the TDC thickness for synthetic data, preferring Sigmoid activation function and 20 hidden nodes. Then, we analyze the applicability of the ELM model on the thickness prediction of the TDC with real application data. Through the cross validation of near-well traces, the results suggest that the ELM model can produce a reliable and accurate prediction of the TDC. After that, we use 250 near-well traces from 10 wells to build an ELM predicting model and use the model to forecast the TDC thickness of the No. 15 coal in the study area using the PCA attributes as the inputs. Comparing the predicted results, it is noted that the trained ELM model with two selected PCA attributes yields better predication results than those from the other combinations of the attributes. Finally, the trained ELM model with real seismic data have a different number of hidden nodes (10) than the trained ELM model with synthetic seismic data. In summary, it is feasible to use an ELM model to predict the TDC thickness using the calculated PCA attributes as the inputs. However, the input attributes, the activation function and the number of hidden nodes in the ELM model should be selected and tested carefully based on individual application. © 2017 Elsevier Ltd

Water inrush makes time extended, instruments destructed, and casualty increased, which is the biggest threat for safe construction of tunnels in karst areas. A software system for risk assessment of water inrush was established with considering eight risk factors, including groundwater level, unfavorable geology, formation lithology, topography, strata inclination, excavation, advanced geological prediction, and monitoring. In the present software system, fuzzy mathematics and Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP) were used to quantitatively describe the risk levels for each factor. The influence degree of each factor to water inrush was assigned an objective weight and a subjective weight, and the proportion of the two weights in the risk assessment was defined as weight distribution. The objective weights of the risk factors were obtained from more than 100 water inrush instances in karst tunnels, whereas the weight distribution was totally derived from expert field assessment and subjective weights were determined by using AHP in the risk assessment. Two case studies of karst tunnels were applied to check the reliability of the proposed software system, and the comparisons between the software assessment and practical excavation yield good consistency. Therefore, the software system can appropriately be used in practice to forecast water inrush in karst tunnels. © 2014, Saudi Society for Geosciences.

A rough estimate of the annual amount of sulfur, arsenic, mercury and fluoride emission from spontaneous combustion of coal gangue in China was determined. The weighted mean concentrations of S, As, Hg, and F in coal gangue are 1.01%, 7.98, 0.18, and 365.54 mg/kg, respectively. Amounts of S, As, Hg, and F emissions from coal gangue spontaneous combustion show approximately 1.13 Mt, and 246, 45, and 63,298 tons in 2013, respectively. The atmospheric release amount of sulfur from coal gangue is more than one tenth of this from coal combustion, and the amounts of As, Hg, and F are close to or even exceed those from coal combustion. China's coal gangue production growth from 1992 to 2013 show an obvious growth since 2002. It may indicate that Chinese coal gangue has become a potential source of air pollution, which should be included in emission inventories. © 2015 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

The effects of anchor on fractured specimens in splitting test are simulated by DDARF method, the results of which are compared with laboratory test results. They agree well with each other. The paper contents also use the laboratory model test. The main research objects are three kinds of specimens, namely intact specimens, jointed specimens and anchored-jointed specimens. The results showed that with the joint angle increased, the weakening effects of jointed rock mass are more obvious. At these points, the rock bolts' strengthening effects on the specimens have become more significant. There is a significant impact on the failure modes of rock mass by the joint and the anchorage.

Junggar basin is an important part of the Central Asian Orogenic Belt (CAOB) which is also one of the key areas of researches about formation and evolution of the CAOB. Recently, a question of whether the Junggar basin has a Precambrian basement is one of the hottest topics. We undertook LA-ICP-MS zircon U–Pb dating from Carboniferous pyroclastic rocks and Mesozoic sedimentary rocks in northern Xinjiang Province, NW China, with the aim of constraining the evolution and features of the basement of the north Junggar basin and adjacent areas. (1) The zircon U–Pb age analysis of the Carboniferous pyroclastic rock samples clustered in the 1447∼1410 Ma and 885∼559 Ma showed that the basement of the north Junggar basin was continental crust that formed 1.4 Ga ago. The zircon U–Pb ages clustered in the 536∼420 Ma, 401∼360 Ma, and 359∼303 Ma indicated a multiple evolution of basement. (2) The zircon trace element analysis of different age groups from the Carboniferous pyroclastic rock samples showed that the basement of the north Junggar basin was continental crust composed of acid rocks and intermediate-basic intrusive rocks, which were mainly the granitoids, syenite, basalt, dolerite, and larvikite. (3) The zircon U–Pb ages and trace element analysis of the Mesozoic sedimentary rock samples clustered in the 3022∼2102 Ma, 1747∼1202 Ma, 996∼915 Ma, 885∼544 Ma, 539∼420 Ma, 419∼356 Ma, and 354∼300 Ma revealed that not only 3.0-Ga continental crust existed in the north Junggar basin and adjacent areas but also multiple crustal material evolution that occurred during the formation of the basement. (4) The evolution of sedimentary cover experienced 299∼250 Ma, 210∼176 Ma, 175∼148 Ma, and 147∼132 Ma with the corresponding peak age of ca. 290, 180, 163, and 140 Ma, respectively, indicated that the sedimentary cover of the northern Junggar basin experienced a complex tectonic evolution from Permian. © 2016, Saudi Society for Geosciences.

SOTEM is a kind of time domain electromagnetic method with great detecting depth and high resolution. In order to further understand and promote this method, studies on its distribution of electromagnetic field response and diffusion characteristics was conducted in this paper. Calculation results based on the 1D forwarding theory of SOTEM indicate that grounded wire source can excite both horizontal and vertical induced current under ground. The horizontal current includes upper and lower parts (also called return current). The maximum of horizontal induced current mainly focus on the area close to the source and diffuses downward vertically. The maximum of vertical induced current diffuses along the direction of 45 degrees with the ground surface with a weaker amplitude and faster speed than horizontal induced current. All the six EM components have the ability for geophysical detection. However, in consideration of the diffusion characteristics of each component and observation convenience, vertical magnetic component Hz (■B/■t) and horizontal electric component Ex are the mostly used in practical. Magnetic component (Hz) is more sensitive to low resistance body and it mainly focuses on the region close to equator area. Electric component (Ex) shows same sensitivity to both low and high resistance body, while low resistance sensitive area mainly focuses on the region close to equator and high resistance sensitive mainly focuses on axial region, and the distance between sensitive region and source is depended on the buried depth of targets and resistivity of overburden. © 2016, Science Press.

Given that the traditional teaching model can no longer adapt to the current talent training program of the mineral processing industry, this paper proposes a professional teaching platform in the form of the "Trinity" teaching platform, which is the systematic training model of "theoretical teaching platform-experimental teaching platform-outside-school practice platform". Through several years of exploration and practice, this teaching system has been proved to successfully broaden students' knowledge under the premise of establishing a strong theoretical basis. Moreover, over 85% of high quality experimental teaching resources have been made accessible to undergraduates, and such an approach has effectively promoted the expansion of teaching practice from the experimental center towards the teaching internship base and scientific research base. As a result, students' innovative capabilities, such as a cognition ability of basic theories, experimental skills, practice techniques, field experience and comprehensive quality, have all been greatly enhanced. Furthermore, such an approach has provided a vast space for the cultivation of applied talents in the mineral processing field and multi-level innovative talents in general. © Trade Science Inc.
